New Sunshine Poster and Featurettes

June 13, 2007
The first time we introduced Danny Boyle's sci fi film Sunshine it was way back in January, when the first trailer appeared. Since then we've been following it closely, including watching it open in the UK in April and painstakingly sit here in the US without being able to see it until the summer has passed. And if you didn't already hear, the release date was recently moved up - all the way to July 20th, timed perfectly with Comic-Con the following week (where it will also have an appearance). Today we present the newest poster featuring a couple of great quotes and a few featurettes on the making of Sunshine.
The newest US poster is below. I'll type the quotes out since they're so small and hard to read, but are better than the usual fare found on posters.
"A thrilling and sensual spectacle."
"Danny Boyle mixes eye-popping special effects and edge-of-your-seat action to make this a sci-fi scorcher."
"An extraordinary film, operating simultaneously at visceral, psychological and spiritual levels as it takes us on a voyage into space with the fate of mankind at stake."
There are also a few new behind-the-scenes featurettes being hosted on some fellow movie sites that I'd suggest you check out if you're interested in Sunshine.
If you're at all a Danny Boyle fan or a sci fi fan like myself, than I hope you're just as excited as I am. Even the sometimes mixed reviews from the UK haven't phased my interest. I'm pretty damn excited to see if this is going to re-invent or at least be a refresher in the sci fi genre like Boyle did with the zombie genre with 28 Days Later. Don't forget - Sunshine now hits theaters on July 20th!
