Magnet Releasing has debut the first poster and trailer for the upcoming science fiction film, The Last Days of Mars. Come inside to check them both out and see why you should be excited.
Honestly, before I even watched the trailer for the film, I was keenly interested in this film because it's directed by Ruairi Robinson. While he's not a household name, he's a filmmaker to be on the lookout for. You may remember him from that incredible sci-fi short film, BlinkyTM, which remains one of my favorite shorts ever. So I'm hoping this movie helps him to burst out into the big time and get the opportunities he deserves. Check out the trailer for his latest film which will be on iTunes/On Demand October 31, 2013 and in theaters December 6, 2013.
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. Directed by Ruairi Robinson, starring Liev Schreiber, Romola Garai, Elias Koteas, Olivia Williams, Johnny Harris, Goran Kostic and Tom Cullen.
