Must Watch: Creepy Sci-Fi Pandorum Teaser Trailer!

Overture Films has debuted the first teaser trailer for Pandorum, the sci-fi thriller we've been following since late last year. A few weeks back, I posted some photos and complained about the synopsis that was released because it talked about "tribal warriors." Well, I take back everything bad I said, because this looks incredible! I really wasn't expecting to like this trailer, but wow, just wow, I love everything about it, especially the darkness of it all and the alarm noise and intimacy and everything. Even the way it ends isn't what you might expect - there's no jump scare, it's that claustrophobic fear that they capitalizing on.
Thanks to our friends at ComingSoon for being the first to let us know that this teaser hit. The panel for Pandorum held at WonderCon over the weekend was quite boring, and I missed seeing this trailer there, but I'm glad it has now arrived and looks as good as I was always secretly hoping it would. Check this out!
Watch the teaser trailer for Pandorum:
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.
