Apollo 18 Preview Clips: The Mystery Deepens
08.29.11 by BJSprecher
Now that Dimension Films finally has a release date for Apollo 18 that it appears to be sticking to, the studio has started to actively promote the movie, with TV spots airing in heavy rotatation and the release of preview clips online. A "found-footage" sci-fi horror movie produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), Apollo 18 is based on the conspiracy theory that NASA ended the Apollo mission because it found...something...on the moon. A preview clip from the movie released last week showed that the Apollo 18 astronauts (played by Lloyd Owen and Warren Christie) found footprints on the moon that were not made by U.S. astronauts. Now, two new preview clips have been released that further the mystery by showing that the astronauts found more than just footprints.
Apollo 18 is the first produced screenplay written by Brian Miller. It is also the first English-language movie directed by Spanish director Gonzalo López-Gallego, whose previous works include King of the Hill (El Rey de la Montaña) and Nómadas.
