Over the weekend, a theatrical trailer for Apollo 18 was released. Due out in theatres on Sept 2, this new film from The Weinstein Company takes on the role of a found footage movie. In the new trailer, we get a ‘less is more’ approach as the filmmakers clearly want to keep us in the dark, which is probably a good decision. The footage seen here is effective and we get just enough to keep us hooked.
I’m usually not a fan of these types of films. I hated Paranormal Activity and never could figure out what the big deal was with The Blair Witch Project. That being said, this one has me intrigued, which is likely due to the fact that it isn’t as blatantly faked/staged as the two aforementioned films were. It also looks genuinely creepy and despite the many delays, I think this one could still turn out alright.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.
