Did you know there was a secret Moon mission?

This has the potential to be a really intense, claustrophobic thriller. Except for the fact that they kinda showed us everything in the trailer.
I hate how shakycam seems to have replaced any element of surprise in trailers.

I hope the documentary style is something that's only in the traillers or kept to a minimum like District 9.

Also, this movie makes zero sense. Hopefully they explain why the mission was secret in the first place and why it was the last one ever.

I'd imagine it was the last one because of the Moon Parasites.

It was secret so they could release it as a horror movie a few decades later.

But surely anything like that would only spark more interest in the moon.

The concept is interesting, but I'm having a hard time believing that the USA and the Soviet Union could launch a lunar mission each and keep it secret.

I've got new mythological machinery, and very handsome supernatural scenery.

I want to read a review so I have at least some idea if I want to see this, but I can't find one yet. sad I guess I should have more patience while waiting for pre-release screening impressions...

The Blair Witch Project IN SPACE?

Pass.

I'm not even going to try to figure out how to hide seven and a half million pounds of thrust lifting a 37 story building. The notion is just too silly to consider. tongue

[edit]
And no, I didn't hear about this until recently. I didn't remember there was a thread on it, since it had been bumped off the first index page before I did find out about the movie.

Anyone else totally confuse this with that other movie about an Apollo mission? But with Tom Hanks as the only alien?
Oh look I mispeled somethink.
[up] You're thinking of Apollo 13. Which obviously really did happen, but they didn't reach the moon though.

That's my dream. It's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight razor … and surviving.

Whatever happens, you're probably better off seeing The Debt or Attack The Block (both have great reviews and have notable UK talent in the crew, Matthew Vaughn on the former and Edgar Wright on the latter).

It's too hard to see Attack the Block.

Anyway, I'll wait and see what people say about this.

It's going wide this Friday.

No kidding? That totally came out of left field. That definitely takes priority for me.

That being said, I'd lie if I said I still wasn't a little intrigued by this film...

I hear the antagonist is a bunch of parasitic spiders disguised as moon rocks.

There have been no ads (Sony has done an awful job promoting it) but a lot of markets are adding it. It's even playing near me. I may see it on Monday.

Looks like that wide release claim turned out to be a lie. It's only expanding to 66 theatres.

66 theaters? Compared to The Room, that's most definitely wide release.

Hatchet II showed in more theaters, unrated, without a major studio behind it. Nevertheless, since Attack the Block actually is showing near me, I'll go see it.

And from what I looked at, it's supposedly on a regional basis now. Many of the new theatres are in the Midwest with a regional run in the South next week.

Just awesome like that
I would've preferred a movie adaptation of the They Might Be Giants album. The "Fingertips" section could be a movie in itself.

Insert witty and clever quip here.
