Found Footage Sci-Fi Movie Apollo 18 Launches a Second Trailer


After a delay that saw its release date pushed all the way back to September 2, 2011, Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s Found Footage movie “Apollo 18″ is ready for its debut later this year. The latest trailer for “Apollo 18″ is a theatrical trailer, and is actually a full minute shorter than the teaser trailer, if that makes any sense whatsoever. So who stares in this thing? Your guess is as good as mind. I haven’t seen a full cast list for this thing yet. Hell, I haven’t seen ANY kind of cast list for this thing, so there you go.

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.

The film’s biggest name is not its director its unknown cast, but still its producer, “Wanted’s” Timur Bekmambetov, who has, at last count, about two gazillion projects going on right now.

The moon beckons September 2, 2011.

    I really hope that this goes the right way. Having a full on alien style thriller set against the backdrop of the USA’s secret moon mission would be great. That being said, I think that it will most likely go the wrong way. The premise is actually pretty good and the first poster was really cool. However, from the looks of the two trailers that I’ve seen, it will more than likely be the cast members (astronauts) being “possessed” or taken over by an unknown force rather than any creature being shown. That would be a waste of a good scenario and very misleading. I can see why they pushed back the release with the whole Transformers 3 dealing a lot with a similar theme. Hopefully the movie is cool because I was intrigued by the first images and synopsis.
