Dimension Films/The Weinstein Company are catapulting us back to the moon in the eerie found footage sci-fi flick entitled “Apollo 18.” Directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego, the story tickles our fancy over the thought of whether or not we did make another trip to the moon and found some things we never dreamed of finding, or ever wanted to. López-Gallego’s most recent directorial work includes “El rey de la montaña.” “Apollo 18″ is the director’s first English-language film.
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 their mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.
You can argue that “Apollo 18″ is nothing more than “The Blair Witch Project” set in space, but it’s hard to say. We’ll be able to find out more once “Apollo 18″ descends into theaters on April 22nd. Be sure to check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
