Jones have started that he hopes that he will able to develop a full trilogy of films set in the ''Moon'' universe, and development on a sequel called ''Mute'' is already under way. Jones have stated that other than being set in the same universe ''Mute'' will share no direct connections to ''Moon'', and is going to be somewhat inspired by ''Film/BladeRunner''.

* AdvertisedExtra: Due to the limited number of characters Kaya Scodelario as teenage Eve receives top billing despite having only a minute or two of screen time. To a lesser extent, Dominique [=McElligott=], who plays Tess, is only seen in a handful of flashbacks and videos.

* ArtificialGravity: Outside the base, gravity on the lunar surface is appropriately low, but inside the base it appears to be standard Earth gravity. The DVD commentary admits this was done for practical reasons.

** The use of "I Am the One and Only" as his alarm is pretty sick too. At first it's was ironic because he is literally alone on the station, but it later becomes even more ironic.
** Early on in the film Sam comments in a video message about how he's been talking to himself. [[CloningBlues Later on, he literally does.]]

* TheOtherDarrin: In-universe. Not exactly used, but the TropeNamer is referenced. At one point we see a clip of ''Bewitched'' being played, where two character are discussing Darrin. Darrin was of course... replaced.

** They're harvesting on the far side of the moon to avoid changing the reflectivity of the Earth-facing side, which might mess-up nocturnal wildlife on Earth.

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Played straight, subverted, averted... call it {{deconstructed|Trope}}. All of the Sams are on the far side of the moon and desperately want to return home to wife and daughter. Sam 1 (and his predecessor clones) never make it. Sam 2 (and maybe his successor clones) do, but their lives are a lie -- they aren't the "real" Sam; there's nothing to return to. Even if there was, they won't live to enjoy much of it. And Original Sam did his time on the moon and returned home for real -- which set up the clones in the first place.

The first feature film directed by Creator/DuncanJones (Music/DavidBowie's [[NeverLiveItDown son]]), ''Moon'' was shown at the 2009 Sundance and Tribeca Film Festivals, and has received a lot of critical acclaim. It has also been praised for [[ShownTheirWork scientific accuracy]], being screened at NASA's Space Center in Houston at the request of one of the professors there, due to its feature of helium-3 mining.

* SwissCheeseSecurity: For the story to unfold, the [[PeaceAndLoveIncorporated evilcorp]] aiming to capitalize on clone slave labour has to [[IdiotBall ignore several glaring security holes]]. The worst of these is the misbehaving (to their standards) AI. Others include inadequate isolation of workforce from restricted areas, inadequate isolation of communication channels, inadequate surveillance measures, etc.

-->'''GERTY''': What is it about Sam that scares you?
-->'''Sam #1''': How he flies off the handle. I can see what Tess was talking about.

* UnexplainedRecovery: Subverted. After the initial crash in the rover, we see Sam wake up in the infirmary with Gerty telling him he crashed. Since Gerty and his robotic arms seem to be confined to the base, the audience is left wondering exactly how was Sam's unconscious body recovered from the crash site. Turns out it wasn't, and Gerty is talking to a different Sam about a different (fake) crash.
