The day most people thought would never come is soon upon us. This film has been in production for the most of the last five years and according to the trailer it is now complete. I remember when I saw the first teaser for Iron Sky in 2008 and thought it was just a viral stunt. What I’m hearing now is that it is being marketed as a sci-fi comedy. A long way from what I originally thought it would be as the first teaser was very serious and dark in tone. Check it out if you get the chance.
As World War II comes to an end in 1945, Hans Kammler and other German scientists make a breakthrough in anti-gravity research. From a secret base in the Antarctic, Nazi spaceships are sent to the “dark side” of the Moon to establish the military base “Schwarze Sonne”. Their plan is to build a powerful fleet and return to conquer Earth. The film is set in the year 2018 when their descendants finally return.
Regardless of how you feel about the found footage genre you have to give these guys credit for telling a story that’s outside the box. This is by far the best trailer we’ve seen for Apollo 18 and certainly got my undivided attention.
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.
We’ve been following this movie for a while and I like what I’ve seen so far. Jake Gyllenhaal is money and I dig the sci-fi time conundrum thing thats going on. It’s almost like a video game type scenario where you keep playing until you get it right. Good concept. Check it out below…
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he’s ever known, he learns he’s part of a government experiment called the “Source Code,” a program that enables him to cross over into another man’s identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack. Filled with mind-boggling twists and heart-pounding suspense, Source Code is a smart action-thriller directed by Duncan Jones (Moon) also starring Michelle Monaghan (Eagle Eye, Due Date), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed), and Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace, Syriana).
Could this action figure reveal Megatron’s new look in the third installment of the popular series Transformers: Dark of the Moon?
