Liev Schreiber

The time of sci-fi is nigh. Another science fiction horror project in the works at the moment is Universal's Last Day on Mars, being directed by Irisih filmmaker Ruairi Robinson, who was supposed to do Akira at WB, but is now doing this instead. Our friends at HeyUGuys.co.uk were on a set visit to Jordan recently to see them filming this movie, about a group of astronaut explorers who visit Mars. Liev Schreiber (last seen in Goon) stars as Vincent, and can be seen in the first look photo they revealed. I'm definitely intrigued by this sci-fi, especially because we haven't heard that much about it yet, but what exactly is it? Take a look.

I wish there was more to see, but this is the only shot from Last Days on Mars revealed so far. Curious?

Liev Schreiber in Last Days on Mars

An early synopsis: As their last day on Mars draws to a close, the astronaut crew is on the verge of a major breakthrough – collected rock specimens reveal microscopic evidence of life. Meanwhile, communication is underway with Aurora, the approaching spacecraft that will relieve the crew of their operations. In their last hours on the planet, two astronauts go back to SITE 9, a cavernous valley on the surface of Mars, to collect further evidence of their discovery. But a routine excavation turns deadly when one of them falls to his death and his body taken host and re-animated by the very life form they sought to discover. Freaky.

Last Day on Mars, also called The Animator, also stars: Elias Koteas, Romola Garai, Olivia Williams, Johnny Harris, Goran Kostic and Tom Cullen. No release date is set yet, but expect to see it in 2013.

    This is how Prometheus should've been....more mystery and a more realistic storyline.

    Not kidding, I had an idea for a movie exactly like this just yesterday. Damn.

      It's a pretty simple idea. Movies like this always end up with someone getting infected.

        Mine didn't. But it did involve aliens.

    I'm not thinking right now, just typing: A big budget version of Apollo 18-set on Mars?

    Can't space be about... other things?

      People only like destruction and death. Happy films are boring. If I want happiness I watch the news, oh wait... It's sad Reznik, but in space, it always has to go baaaaaaaaad.

    It's about time Ruairi got to direct a feature-length film. His short films The Silent City and Blinky are pretty impressive!
