THE LAST DAYS ON MARS is a new scifi-horror flick that is coming our way next month. It’ll be released on iTunes/On Demand in October 31, 2013 and wil then have a theatrical release on December 6, 2013. THE LAST DAYS ON MARS is directed by Ruairi Robinson and is written for the screen by Clive Dawson and is based on the short story by Sydney J. Bounds. The film stars Liev Schreiber, Romola Garai, Elias Koteas, Olivia Williams, Johnny Harris, Goran Kostic and Tom Cullen. Check out the plot crunch:
On the last day of the first manned mission to Mars, a crew member of Tantalus Base believes he has made an astounding discovery – fossilized evidence of bacterial life. Unwilling to let the relief crew claim all the glory, he disobeys orders to pack up and goes out on an unauthorized expedition to collect further samples. But a routine excavation turns to disaster when the porous ground collapses, and he falls into a deep crevice and near certain death. His devastated colleagues attempt to recover his body. However, when another vanishes they start to suspect that the life-form they have discovered is not yet dead. As the group begins to fall apart it seems their only hope is the imminent arrival of the relief ship Aurora.
And now dig on the trailer:
Okay, okay … so this isn’t the most original scifi-horror film we’ll ever see. But it has a decent cast and I’m always up for an ALIEN ripoff if it’s done well.
