Three New Photos from Christian Alvart's Pandorum

There was a time when I was actually excited for Pandorum. But with these three new photos, and a new plot synopsis, that excitement has quickly dissipated. Originally, I thought Pandorum was a sci-fi film about a crew who wakes up unexpectedly on a ship, kind of like Danny Boyle's Sunshine. While that is still how it starts, apparently it's about vampires and the human race being on the verge of extinction because of a plague that turns people into vampires. Worst of all, the people they find on the ship are "tribal warriors carrying crudely made weapons." Seriously, I thought we got enough of this tribal crap in Doomsday?

These new photos come from ShockTillYouDrop. There is a presentation for Pandorum this weekend at WonderCon in San Francisco, where I'll be at. If the footage changes my mind, I'll be sure to let you know!

Pandorum Photos

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.

The story could be chewed up to death, I don't care, as long as the movie kicks ass. As long as the delivery is self reflecting with sense of humor and the entertaining is light - I'll enjoy it no matter how cliche the story is.

It's like they took Doomsday and Ultraviolet, smashed 'em together and put it on a space ship...I'll catch it on TV...

Nobody woke up in Sunshine Alex...you're either thinking Alien or Event Horizon.......Antibodies was one of the best thrillers out of Europe in a long time...I have all the confidence this will be entertaining and I believe Christian Alvart is an excellent director....I think you may have just seen Paul W. Anderson's name and wrote it off as bad....

Hanz is right it's from that Ethan Hawke movie Daybreakers....the tribal warriors part is from the real synopsis although when I posted it on my blog the studio asked me to remove the synopsis...maybe it's been changed...

Number 1 said it all. Doomsday in space, exactly.

LOL, this has nothing in common with Doomsday. If medieval villagers make an appearance, we can talk again.

I heard that JCVD turned down a role for this movie because they offered him too much money and no story. True story.
