Remember Europa Report? Back in December, when I first mentioned it, a 30-second teaser made it look like an srty, promising film that tries to treat travel within out solar system in a realistic manner. But now that we have a full-length trailer, the movie is looking more like a standard astronaut horror movie.
Yeah, despite featuring Sharlto Copley (District 9), Europa Report looks a lot more cheesy now, since it seems to be employing the ol’ “astronauts possessed by incorporeal aliens” gimmick.
I hope that someday humans land on a planet that is not occupied by strange lifeforms that just happen to be perfectly suited for taking over the minds of Homo sapiens. I hate it when that happens. And it serves a Luddite point of view.
Anyway, I’m sure I’ll end up watching this, even if I wait for Blu-ray. It opens in theaters June 27.
