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 EW.com 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.

Haha...what the hell?

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.

Unfortunately, there's no 'graphic nudity' so I'm not sure about this...

Also, definitely graphic nudity for sure in the movie itself. (Spoiler)

Rating said: graphic nudity. I feel deceived and lack of it makes me suspicious about the quality of the film...

The trailer itself did that for me.

that doesn't work for me. Not good enough. If there's no graphic nudity movie itself has no depth...

Funnier than most of the comedies made today.

looks like they took cues from the TV show space 1999 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15WQaaHBBXc

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.

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. 🙂

Can I just say for everyone 'Eeeeek!' :-/ Is this a spoof, of a spoof, without the comedy?

Dan B on Jul 23, 2014

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.

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...

cuckoozey on Jul 23, 2014

Yeah, this trailer is a joke-free environment.

cobrazombie on Jul 24, 2014

First thing I thought of.

Straight to video.
