Sharlto Copley witnesses something extraterrestrial in the full trailer for Europa Report
After several mysterious teasers, we now have a full look at the trailer for EUROPA REPORT starring Sharlto Copley. The film, which employs found footage, tells the story of the first manned mission to the titular moon. What happens next is hard to tell but it certainly seems like aliens are involved.
For an indie, this looks pretty damn impressive. The trailer touts comparisons to MOON and 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, good company for any scifi movie. It also reminds me a lot of Danny Boyle's SUNSHINE, another great flick.
Check out the trailer:
EUROPA REPORT follows a contemporary mission to Jupiter's moon Europa to investigate the possible existence of alien life within our solar system. When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa's icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discoveries that may lie in the Europan ocean. After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crewmember, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel, and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined.
Between this and GRAVITY, intelligent scifi looks like it is coming back to theaters. And that is a damn good thing. Starring Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist, Christian Camargo, Embeth Davidtz, Dan Fogler, Anamaria Marinca, Isiah Whitlock, JR., Karolina Wydra and Daniel Wu, EUROPA REPORT will be on demand on June 27, 2013 and in theaters August 2, 2013.
