With a budget of just $5’000,000.00 USD, director Gonzalo López-Gallego presents the film ‘Apollo 18’, produced by Timur Bekmambetov (‘Wanted’, 2008).
For what we can see from the trailer, the mockumentary-type film is about a cancelled mission of the U.S. Apollo space program (conducted by NASA). In the film, the mission was not actually cancelled and took three American astronauts to the Moon in secret, where they experienced “unexplained malfunctions”, found a damaged helmet of a Russian cosmonaut, and encountered what appears to be a parasitic life form.
Without further ado, here’s the trailer.
The film is scheduled for release on September 2nd, 2011.
