Must Watch: Creepy Sci-Fi Pandorum Teaser Trailer!

March 4, 2009

Pandorum Teaser Trailer

Overture Films has debuted the first teaser trailer for Pandorum, the sci-fi thriller we've been following since late last year. A few weeks back, I posted some photos and complained about the synopsis that was released because it talked about "tribal warriors." Well, I take back everything bad I said, because this looks incredible! I really wasn't expecting to like this trailer, but wow, just wow, I love everything about it, especially the darkness of it all and the alarm noise and intimacy and everything. Even the way it ends isn't what you might expect - there's no jump scare, it's that claustrophobic fear that they capitalizing on.

Thanks to our friends at ComingSoon for being the first to let us know that this teaser hit. The panel for Pandorum held at WonderCon over the weekend was quite boring, and I missed seeing this trailer there, but I'm glad it has now arrived and looks as good as I was always secretly hoping it would. Check this out!

Watch the teaser trailer for Pandorum:

[flv: 512 288]

Two crewmen awaken from hyper-sleep aboard a spacecraft. None of their equipment is working, and their memories are incomplete. What was their mission? How much time has passed? Where are they? As they try to piece things together, they discover they are not alone, and the ship's new inhabitants - tribal warriors carrying crudely made weapons - are moving among them, intent on killing all aboard. As the space travelers unravel the frightening and deadly secrets the ship harbors, they realize the survival of mankind hinges on their actions. They must regain control of the ship before Pandorum takes over.

Pandorum is directed by German filmmaker Christian Alvart, of only the horror films Curiosity & the Cat and Antibodies previously. The screenplay was written by Travis Milloy, of Street Gun and Just Like Mona previously. Overture Films is bringing Pandorum to theaters everywhere on September 4th.

Jericho on Mar 4, 2009


looks like "dante 01"

rocken on Mar 4, 2009


Dante 01 was awful...this looks more like Event Horizon if anything

Christopher M on Mar 4, 2009


It's nothing like Dante 01, which was indeed awful, I agree.

Nekrosoma on Mar 4, 2009


Looks kinda many times can you remake Alien?

Google The Oct8pus on Mar 4, 2009


Agreed #3. I was going to say the same thing. Alien/Event Horizon.

wassssssuuuuuupppppppp on Mar 4, 2009


Good cast good thing they got Foster for this.

xerxerxex on Mar 4, 2009


this is so lame it looks like Event Horizon well i aint surprise cause its been produce by Paul W. S. Anderson.

terry on Mar 4, 2009


Is it just me or does it seem to have a dead space kind of look to it for anyone who's played the game also im pretty sure i saw the same helmet thats in the game near the beggining of the trailer but the trailer was good i'm lookin forward to seeing more.

krupz2613 on Mar 4, 2009


Im interested. But you know the crazy people are just other shipmates who went crazy I mean thats easy to call but the question is Why? dun dun dunnnnnnn...

Unseen on Mar 4, 2009


that looks pretty damn good

????? on Mar 4, 2009


Looks a lot like Event Horizon, imo. But Ben Foster is in it so I will definitely watch it. He's still way under appreciated, and I love seeing him doing more movies.

SuicidalOptimist on Mar 4, 2009


Seems B-rate to me.

Ryan on Mar 4, 2009


looks kinda of dumb

woody on Mar 4, 2009


Sweet. Not nearly enough of these kinds of films out there, so it better be good.

Morbius on Mar 4, 2009


It feels a lot like the portion of 'Sunshine' when their aboard the first mission's shuttle. I'm interested, though I'm a bit too much of a pansy to be super psyched for this.

Will Schiffelbein on Mar 4, 2009


once i saw the words "From the Producers of Resident Evil", my heart sank. this movie will suck.

Matt Suhu on Mar 4, 2009


@#17 Matt Suhu - It can't be that bad.. at least it wasn't the producers of Resident Evil: Extinction..

Flowerbridge on Mar 4, 2009


looks "ok", but it's not something i'm needing to watch.

dan on Mar 4, 2009


Reminds me of Dead Space, speaking of which note to self Buy Dead Space 🙂

NeoSlyfer on Mar 4, 2009


It lost me at "From the producers of the Resident Evil films".

Kevin on Mar 4, 2009


it looks decent, I love these type of space movies though, so I'll probably check it out just because of that.

The Kid on Mar 4, 2009


This reminds me of Dead Space,lol. Any way it looks good.

Darrin on Mar 5, 2009


Looks pretty good, even if i HATE Dennis Quaid. Hope Ben Foster gonna get bigger and better roles, I like hes acting. Hes such a creepy and scary guy to watch in my opinion! Should be pretty entertaining-.-

max on Mar 5, 2009


Looks really nice! I´ll keep an eye on it!

pipo on Mar 5, 2009


Event Horizon + The Descent?

Richard on Mar 5, 2009


Looks cool with Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster together,I'll check this out.

Fisherr on Mar 5, 2009


Event horizon+Aliens+Descent (Claustrophobic style)=Pandorum

Fisherr on Mar 5, 2009


Wouldn't they want to hide the fact that it was produced by the Resident Evil crew? Looks like meh to me.

normf on Mar 6, 2009


it looks like a cross between event horizon,silent hill,resident evil,bit matrix,have to see full trailer to make up mind.

zetsu on Mar 6, 2009


Dennis Quaid?? Huh... I like how they did the text in the beginning. *nod nod*

Lauren on Mar 6, 2009


dead space movie kinda?

???? on Mar 6, 2009


hopefully not another PG-13 horrer movie want to see some real gore

cheater on Mar 7, 2009


The plot sounds an awful lot like the story behind Jim Dunnigan's 1980 SF board game "The Wreck Of The Pandora".

Setebos on Mar 8, 2009


I thought of Deadspace when I saw this trailer at first, but that game involves aliens that come from human bodies. That game is freaking awesome and I hope they make a live action movie out of that

Shootah! on Mar 9, 2009


Feels so DEAD SPACE.. a rip off?

az on Apr 12, 2009


to #18,all the resident evil movies sucked.

erik on May 4, 2009


I'm surprised no one has made a connection to Cube. The death trap/maze part of it gave me that feel. There were other parts that did make me think of Event Horizon. I'd have to see more. If it's a bit more psychological and not too much gore, I may consider seeing it in the theaters.

SapphireD on May 4, 2009


I just wonder how if you lost your memory you could realize everything you knew was gone?

Erin on May 6, 2009


Ben Foster is an awesome actor, he's perfect for this thriller movie
