Apollo 18 Gets a New Theatrical Trailer
08.30.11 by Ryan
With Apollo 18 opening this week, Dimension Films has been working overtime to get the word out, releasing not just one preview clip, but (ultimately) three clips total in the past week. The latest promotional offering is a new theatrical trailer which delivers a fresh look at the sci-fi horror movie.
It's based on the conspiracy theory that NASA actually launched the Apollo 18 mission in secret; in reality, the mission was planned and then canceled. Whether you think the movie is just "found-footage" of a real mission as its being marketed, or realize it's just a movie, Apollo 18 shows that the astronauts (played, or "played", by Lloyd Owen and Warren Christie) find something on the moon that has kept lunar landings from happening ever since.
Produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), Apollo 18 opens this Friday, unless Dimension decides to change the release date yet again. Apollo 18 is the English-language debut for director Gonzalo López-Gallego, and was written by Brian Miller.
