One day man will go to Mars, but until that day we can see what a terribly awful experience it will be in the movies. An international trailer has been released for director Ruairi Robinson's sci-fi thriller The Last Days on Mars, which stars Liev Schreiber, Elias Koteas, Romola Garai, Olivia Williams, and Tom Cullen. It looks like it will be fun movie, and here's the synopsis:
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 film will be available On Demand on October 31st and will then hit theaters on December 6th. I'm looking forward to checking it out!
