Go into 70s style deep Space with the hilarious Space Station 76 trailer

07.22.2014

With so many movies set in a futuristic version of space, it’s refreshing to see a movie that looks at deep space life in a 70s style. That’s what you get with SPACE STATION 76, Jack Plotnick’s feature directorial debut that follows a group of characters aboard a refueling station called Omega 76. We have the the first trailer and poster for the movie below, definitely check them out!

Here's the film’s official synopsis:

Space Station 76 is a comedic drama about a group of people (and several robots) living on a space station in a 1970’s-version of the future. When a new Assistant Captain arrives, she inadvertently ignites tensions among the crew, prompting them to confront their darkest secrets. Barely contained lust, jealousy, and anger all bubble to the surface, becoming just as dangerous as the asteroid that’s heading right for them.

Plotnick is said to have developed the script through improvisation sessions at his home with some of his favorite actors. I can’t imagine getting what a time that must have been because judging from the fantastic first trailer we’re in for a lot of laughs. The clever nuances are so slight you might think you’re watching a Mike Judge movie - at least that was my first impression. I must say, Wilson certainly plays the bitter captain perfectly; as one of my favorite actors it’s great to see him in a solid looking comedy.

What did you think of the trailer? The film premiered March 8, 2014, at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. We will keep you posted on any release information.

I hope that wasn't indicative of the film, because while the concept is interesting, there was pretty much nothing funny in this trailer.

Patrick Wilson certainly seems to be channeling Ron Burgundy. And I noticed Keir Dullea is in the credits. Certainly looks interesting, maybe a Black Dynamite of late-70s sci-fi.

Looks pretty good

I could see this being funny and interesting. However I am saddened that the amazing Jerry O'Connell did not warrant mention in the article or make top name status on the poster. The guys is a L-E-G-E-N-D.

Looks funny!

It reminded me of a mix of Spaceballs, Galaxy Quest and Anchorman which is a pretty solid trio of oddball comedies with a little Firefly mixed in for good measure. Don't think I would see this in the theater but I think I would sit down at home with some friends and laugh my ass off on Netflix or another streaming option. This makes me realize how great an off the wall space comedy TV show could be if it hit the right tone...not sure why a TV show popped into my head but that is an untapped

This makes me realize how great an off the wall space comedy TV show could be if it hit the right tone...not sure why a TV show popped into my head but that is an untapped mine of American TV comedy gold (Red Dwarf aside) particularly if it was a raunchy, adult show on a pay channel like HBO or Showtime.

Well, that was certainly different. Looks funny, but the whole time I kept thinking how it reminded me of what an 'Anchorman' film would be and look like in space.
