Patrick Wilson & Liv Tyler Star in Sci-Fi Spoof 'Space Station 76' Trailer

Space Station 76 Trailer

"A female captain?" Say what? The first trailer for a goofy sci-fi 70's spoof called Space Station 76 has debuted thanks to Entertainment Weekly and it's as bad as you would expect for a trailer that debuts on Entertainment Weekly. Despite a solid cast, including Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Marisa Coughlan, Matt Bomer, Jerry O'Connell and Kylie Rogers, the jokes fall flat, the dialogue is atrocious, and this looks more like bargain bin crap than a worthy spoof. Seriously, it looks terrible. But maybe it wasn't made for everyone. Take a look below at a 1970s version of the future, where personalities and asteroids collide.

Here's the first official trailer for Jack Plotnick's Space Station 76, from via The Playlist:

In a 1970s-version of the future, a group of people and robots living on a space station face inner turmoil when a new assistant captain arrives, sparking tension. Space Station 76 is directed by comedian Jack Plotnick, a TV writer/actor making his feature directing debut. Writers credited include Jennifer Elise Cox, Sam Pancake, Jack Plotnick, Kali Rocha and Michael Stoyanov. The film first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, and will be released by Sony. Visit the film's official website here or Facebook page. Below is the poster for the release, which will likely hit both VOD and theaters. Anyone interested?

Jack Plotnick's Space Station 76 still doesn't have an official release date yet, but we expect it out this year.

    Looks like it might have potential... buuuuuuutttt.... not the strongest trailer, unfortunately.

    so many talents
    Haha...what the hell?
  • Chris Groves
    I love the idea of it, but I agree that I'm not sure this was the best trailer. It sounds like they may not have done ADR for the film yet.
  • shiboleth
    Unfortunately, there's no 'graphic nudity' so I'm not sure about this...
    • Billy Brooks
      Also, definitely graphic nudity for sure in the movie itself. (Spoiler)
      • shiboleth
        Rating said: graphic nudity. I feel deceived and lack of it makes me suspicious about the quality of the film...
        • cuckoozey
          The trailer itself did that for me.
          • shiboleth
            that doesn't work for me. Not good enough. If there's no graphic nudity movie itself has no depth...
  • Richard 33377
    Funnier than most of the comedies made today.
  • Billy Brooks
    Trust me, this movie is WAY smarter than the trailer portrays it. It has great funny bits but also surprising depth and darkness. I'm biased (I helped make the movie). If you like classic 70's scifi at all, we treated it with respect and love. Maybe give it a shot when it comes out this fall? :)

      I'll remember what you said, but your crew really needed to hire someone to cut a funnier trailer, my friend.
      • Billy Brooks
        I hear ya, man. The trailer was out of our control but hopefully word of mouth will connect with people who didn't care for the trailer. Have a great weekend. :)

    Were there actually any jokes in that trailer?
    • cg
      seriously.. i thought the same thing
  • Jonathan
  • Dan B
    Can I just say for everyone 'Eeeeek!' :-/ Is this a spoof, of a spoof, without the comedy?
  • Plan Dis
    Have you never seen trailers from the 70s or 80s? You're missing the joke. Also, this sort of has a Wet American Summer in space vibe to me.
  • cuckoozey
    Great concept, but from the trailer it looks like poor execution. And maybe they should've included some jokes in the trailer if this is in fact a comedy...
    • cobrazombie
      Yeah, this trailer is a joke-free environment.
  • cobrazombie
    First thing I thought of.
  • cobrazombie
    Straight to video.
