First UK Trailer for Ruairi Robinson's Sci-Fi Horror 'Last Days on Mars'
"Tomorrow is our last day… but I don't know if we're going to make it home." Uh oh. Time to get a look at yet another sci-fi film arriving this year, this one titled Last Days on Mars, a space horror sci-fi set on the red planet Mars. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival (my review) and while it's not terrible, it's not that great either. In a year with so much other incredible sci-fi from Europa Report to Gravity, this is going to be forgotten quickly, especially because it's almost just another bland version of Ghosts of Mars. Liev Schreiber leads the ensemble cast, which also features Elias Koteas and Olivia Williams, too. For only a 60 second trailer, this does show quite a bit (maybe too much?) of the movie so watch out. Fire it up.
Here's the very first UK trailer for Ruairi Robinson's Last Days on Mars, originally from MSN UK:
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 is the feature directing debut of Irish filmmaker Ruairi Robinson (of the short Blinky) from a screenplay by Clive Dawson. The cast includes Romola Garai, Johnny Harris, Goran Kostic and Tom Cullen. Last Day on Mars arrives in UK theaters in September, but still doesn't have a US release date yet.
