Ruairi Robinson’s “The Last Days on Mars” looks a lot like John Carpenter’s “The Thing”, only set on Mars. I can dig it. I like the premise, and as long as you keep moving it to a new locale, I think it’s fair game to keep doing it. Plus, Liev Shreiber looks like he’s in his element playing the tough American in an international crew of space hopping folks. And remember, kids — when on Mars, do not open the door when people are shouting at you not to open the door. I mean, come on, listen, will ya?
Check out a pair of new trailers for the film, along with an earlier clip that was released many Martian moons ago.
