First Look: Beautiful Photos of Sam Rockwell in Moon
There's a interesting little sci-fi film on the horizon called Moon starring Sam Rockwell. We've actually mentioned it a few times before, but it remains under the radar, or at least it will until today. The guys over at Bloody Disgusting got their hand on a very impressive batch of photos from the film. Astronaut Sam Bell (Rockwell) has been mining Helium 3 on the moon three years alone. Just two weeks shy of his departure from the lunar base Selene, Sam starts seeing and hearing things and feeling strange. When a routine extraction goes horribly wrong, he discovers that his employer has their own plans for replacing him and the new recruit is eerily familiar. If you're a sci-fi nut like me, you'll definitely want to check these out!

Moon is being directing by Duncan Jones, also known as Zowie Bowie, the son of David Bowie. Jones is a former ad exec turned filmmaker with only one film under his belt, a sci-fi short from 2000 called Whistle. I really love the look of this. I'm a big fan of anything sci-fi and an even bigger fan of independent sci-fi. Beyond that, the prospect of seeing Rockwell take on a solo role is very exciting. He's an incredibly underrated actor and roles like this will only put him in the spotlight even more. Moon doesn't yet have a US distributor just yet and only recently seems to have finished shooting. Stay tuned for more details soon!
