A new trailer has been release for horror movie Apollo 18. Revealing a dark “secret” that Nasa has kept hidden all these years, Apollo 18 tells the story of the 18th manned Apollo mission to our moon and the danger encountered by the team sent up there.
The film does remind a little of Ridley Scott’s Alien in more than one scene, but at the same time it promises to be a compelling movie.
Despite the many sci-fi movies out there and still to come, it is strange that only one of them is based on the nearest object to us in space; our moon.
The film is directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego, is produced by Timur Bekmambetov (also producer of Wanted) and is out in April.
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.
