Check This Out: Crazy Teaser Poster for Pandorum!
by Alex Billington
March 6, 2009
Although we already debuted the teaser trailer for Pandorum earlier in the week, there wasn't a poster to go along with it. Well, there was a poster, as this one below was an exclusive WonderCon poster that Overture gave away at that con, but until now, I haven't seen it online in good quality. Last year when we shared the first few photos from this sci-fi thriller, we only had a small poster with a ship on it that looked pretty cool. This is what they've whipped up to replace that one. I actually like the direction their marketing is going - it's not too sc-fi and it's not too horror, it's a good balance between the two.
The way you see it below - with it looking like it's upside down - is the correct way it should be positioned. You can tell by the placement of the Constantin Film logo found in the bottom right. Creepy, eh?
Two crewmen awaken from hyper-sleep aboard a spacecraft. None of their equipment is working, and their memories are incomplete. What was their mission? How much time has passed? Where are they? As they try to piece things together, they discover they are not alone, and the ship's new inhabitants - tribal warriors carrying crudely made weapons - are moving among them, intent on killing all aboard. As the space travelers unravel the frightening and deadly secrets the ship harbors, they realize the survival of mankind hinges on their actions. They must regain control of the ship before Pandorum takes over.
Pandorum is directed by German filmmaker Christian Alvart, of only the horror films Curiosity & the Cat and Antibodies previously. The screenplay was written by Travis Milloy, of Street Gun and Just Like Mona previously. Overture Films is bringing Pandorum to theaters everywhere on September 4th.

I'm curious as to whether or not it ties in with the plot, or if it's just something that catches the eye and looks crazy. I'm finding myself more and more interested in this movie; may have to catch it when it comes out in theaters.

Cool concept but the execution is so poor. The stuff coming out of his eyes is really badly photoshopped.

It looks pretty sweet to my untrained eye.

Creppy at first but the more I look at it, the execution could have been better, escpically the eyes.

I love all you pro Photoshop artist. Probably never touched the program once, unless it was to fix a red eye.
