An intriguing teaser trailer has been released for a new sci-fi film called Europa Report. The movie was directed by Sebastián Codero (Cronicas) and stars Sharlto Copley (District 9), Michael Nyqvist (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Daniel Wu, Anamaria Marinca, Christian Camargo and Karolina Wydra. It's been almost a year since I've seen anything for this movie, but the teaser trailer has definitely sparked my interest.
The story follows a "group of astronauts who make the arduous journey to Jupiter's frigid, glacial moon Europa in search of extraterrestrial life. The only thing more intimidating and unpredictable than the trip itself is what the team will encounter upon arrival."
The teaser gives us our first look at the spaceship Europa and some of the cast members. It also includes a musical score by composer Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica). There's a website address at the end of the trailer for Europa Ventures, it includes looping video footage of the crew from inside and outside of the spacecraft. I've included a video embed of that as well thanks to Firstshowing.
Check out the trailer and video footage below and let us know if you're excited to see more of the film!
Here's a Mission Statement that's also found on the site:
For decades, scientists have theorized the existence of liquid water oceans on Jupiter's moon, Europa. We've recently discovered new, captivating evidence that these sub-surface oceans do exist and could support life.
We've sent six astronauts from space programs throughout the world on a three year journey to Europa to explore its oceans and confirm these findings.
We're proud to be at the forefront of the effort to prove the existence of extra-terrestrial life within our solar system, within our lifetimes.
