There's a mystery on the moon in the trailer for Apollo 18

02.18.2011by:

They just started making the "found footage" space thriller APOLLO 18 last November, but it already has a trailer and an April 22nd release date. But then, all director Gonzalo López-Gallego really had to do was assemble the "found footage", right? Sure.

Synopsis: 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.

Check out the trailer below or in HD at Apple.

Meh, this looks dull. I didn't get a hint of originality from this trailer. I think the "found footage" thing is played out. REC and Cloverfield were the best that this sort of sub genre has had to offer, so unless someone can come up with something truly original and entertaining, I think people need to give it a rest.

looks like its gonna be one of those "no hope of getting laid, no texts ,no calls, snowed in on a Saturday night, Bored and seen all of the mainstream redbox movies so I'll get this one" type of movies. But I'd still give it a shot.

Looks cool, but no way I buy it. if this was real footage nasa would have buried it, and no way they would let a Hollywood movie be made about it.

What the HELL . . .

. . . is the matter with you people who like this? If you're going to make a "found footage" film about an event this far in the past, is has to LOOK like it's "found footage" from that era! 90% of what they're showing here looks like it was shot with modern cameras of some type, NOT with the miserable equipment that existed at that time. You can't just get all "shaky-cam" and throw in some static here and there. It looks like footage found in 2010 . . . that was shot in 2009. Good idea maybe .

LOL I was just going to post this exact thing. The difference between what is obviously older footage and the new stuff is ridiculous. At least throw some photoshop grain on the film. The film in general seems like it could be fun but that difference in quality would instantly take me out of the moment.

What's amazing is that after all this time, there are still people who go see these movies and walk out saying, "Oh my god, that was so scary! I can't believe that actually happened in real life!"

Am I the only one sick of this type of movie? That trailer makes the movie look pretty dull and did absolutely nothing for me.

I like the found footage type of horror film. It makes it feel more real and makes the horror aspect a lot more effective. Of course theres the AWFUL ones like Paranormal Activity 2 and Last Exorcism but this one actually looks very good.

I like the found footage genre and I think this is a cool idea. Looks like it could be good though I agree with DaForce and will probably wait to rent it on DVD.

Looks pretty good

I'm a fan of the mockumentary style horror flicks. This one looks pretty suspenseful, actually.

I absolutely love movies told this way. Cloverfield, Blair Witch, etc. The 'documentary' look seems very well done, and who couldn't love this story? Everyone loves early nasa stuff, lol.

I am so enticed by films like these. The way they're shot makes for a refreshing change of pace. Also, who can deny a good space sci fi?
