Creepy First Poster for Timur Bekmambetov's 'Apollo 18' Appears
I had a feeling this was coming soon. When it was announced that The Weinstein Company would be behind the Timur Bekmambetov produced found-footage sci-fi project called Apollo 18 about a moon landing that "never took place," they already set it for an early March 4th, 2011 release, even though I don't think they have even filmed it yet. So with a date that soon, I knew TWC would be teasing it early, and here we go. IGN debuted the teaser poster for Apollo 18, being directed by Gonzalo López, and as expected there's quite a bit of creepiness that comes with it. That tagline and that damn footprint or whatever it is. Check this out!
Apollo 18 will be shot found-footage style, depicting "lost" recordings from Apollo 18's mysterious mission to the lunar surface, where "something very, very bad happened to the crew." This has a lot of buzz behind it already and I'm excited to see what they come up with. I was wondering when found-footage films would shift from ghosts to aliens. It looks like they'll also beat Paramount to the punch, as they have Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli's extraterrestrial follow-up Area 51 due out sometime next year. We'll keep you updated on anything we hear about Apollo 18 before its release! Visit the official site: Apollo18movie.net.
