Must Watch: Fan Made Rendezvous with Rama Movie Trailer!
Now this should give you chills. Vancouver Film School student Philip Mahoney and visual artist Aaron Ross teamed up to create this trailer (via Cinema Blend) for an adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's sci-fi novel Rendezvous with Rama. This is exciting to see because a Rendezvous with Rama movie has been in the works for a while, at one point with David Fincher and Morgan Freeman attached. Then we reported a few years ago that the project was dead, despite claims from producers otherwise. Now we have this amazing fan made trailer to hold us over, and give us a glimpse at what a Rendezvous with Rama movie might look like.
Watch Philip Mahoney's fan made trailer for Rendezvous with Rama:
If you couldn't pick this up from the trailer, Rendezvous with Rama is about a mysterious thirty-mile-long hollow cylindrical alien spaceship called Rama that one day drifts into our solar system. A 20-man crew is sent on a spaceship called Endeavor to investigate this "thing from outer space to find out what it is [and] what its intentions are." What is it? Who built it? And what is it doing in our corner of the galaxy? This is obviously just a trailer created out of computer visuals, but it's an absolutely mesmerizing look at how great a movie based on the book could be. I hope one day we see someone make a Rendezvous with Rama film, at least before something like this suddenly happens in the real life. What did you think of the trailer?
