Zoe and the Astronaut Trailer

"You two seem to be getting on very well…" An official trailer has debuted for a new sci-fi drama titled Zoe and the Astronaut, a super low budget indie film that hasn't played at many festivals yet. The film is the directorial debut of English-Nigerian actor Eke Chukwu, telling the story of a woman with leukemia. One day, a young astronaut crash lands near her home. New to all things on the planet, she spends her last days teaching this astronaut about the wonders of Planet Earth. Oh I'm sure she does. Kirsten Foster stars as Zoe, along with Max Scully, Ian Reddington, Lisa Moorish, Lara Heller, Rob Oldfield, and Mike Fury. This looks like one of those extra campy, cliche love stories filmed without any budget. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Eke Chukwu's Zoe and the Astronaut, direct from YouTube:

Terrible and laughably bad. Also, I never trust a production company that uses Papyrus as their company title typeface choice.

Live-action, dollar bin romance fodder.

She must be healed on the end. So, what is there to expect?
