Want to See Apollo 18? You’re Gonna Have to Wait a Little Longer.

Is there something wrong with director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s “Apollo 18″? Produced by “Wanted” mastermind Timur Bekmambetov, this intriguing sci-fi thriller has been tossed around the calendar a bit by Dimension Films, a fact which leads me to believe that their confidence in the flick is wavering. So instead of hitting theaters on August 26th, 2011, the film has been bumped to September 2nd, 2011, which just so happens to be the same day “Shark Night 3D” takes a bite out of movie-goers. And if you ask me, my money’s on the shark.

Never heard of “Apollo 18″? Here’s what it’s about:

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.

Will the date change again, you ask? Honestly, who knows? After all, this is Dimension we’re talking about. By the time all is said and done, “Apollo 18″ might be a G-rated romantic comedy about lonely astronauts on the moon.
