The Last Days on Mars trailer offers outer space horror

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Make sure you’ve got enough oxygen for THE LAST DAYS ON MARS trailer, which has just premiered and can be found below. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this past summer, and while the reviews were fairly mixed, you can’t argue with space zombies. You just can’t.

The plot:


On the last day of the first manned mission to Mars, a crew member of Tantalus Base believes he has made an astounding discovery – fossilized evidence of bacterial life. Unwilling to let the relief crew claim all the glory, he disobeys orders to pack up and goes out on an unauthorized expedition to collect further samples. But a routine excavation turns to disaster when the porous ground collapses, and he falls into a deep crevice and near certain death. His devastated colleagues attempt to recover his body. However, when another vanishes they start to suspect that the life-form they have discovered is not yet dead. As the group begins to fall apart it seems their only hope is the imminent arrival of the relief ship Aurora.

THE LAST DAYS ON MARS was directed by Ruairi Robinson, and stars Liev Schreiber, Romola Garai, Elias Koteas, Olivia Williams, Johnny Harris, Goran Kostic and Tom Cullen. It hits VOD on Halloween and theaters on December 6th.
