Last week, we showed you the U.K. trailer for The Last Days on Mars, a nasty indie-horror invasion thriller -- now feast on this super-sized U.S. trailer, with bloody space parasites aplenty, murder-induced paranoia and one rocketship-swallowing sandstorm racing along the Red Planet's barren landscape.
Directed by Ruairi Robinson, the slick sci-fi odyssey stars Liev Schreiber, Olivia Williams, Romola Garai, Elias Koteas, Tom Cullen, Goran Kostic and Johnny Harris. Along with October's Gravity, this little sleeper could be another interesting outer-space offering to satisfy our geek cravings as autumn arrives.
Here's the official synopsis:
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.
Sound like something you might like to ingest? The Last Days on Mars hits VOD on Oct. 31, followed by a U.S. theatrical release on Dec. 6, 2013.
