A "biohazard" warning symbol projected onto Dover's white cliffs will mark a film launch across the UK.
A biohazard warning symbol will be projected onto the cliffs
Kent's famous landmark is being used because it features in the movie, 28 Weeks Later - a sequel to 28 Days Later which was in cinemas five years ago.
In the first film, a deadly virus wipes out England but in the sequel it turns out the bug is not yet destroyed.
28 Days Later, from director Danny Boyle, received £3.2m in lottery cash and became a cult hit in the UK.
It was hailed by the UK Film Council as proof that a new method of awarding lottery money worked - with film-makers themselves helping decide which projects were likely to appeal to audiences.
The launch in Kent on Friday was set to take place 28 days ahead of the sequel's release.
