Overture Films has released the first teaser trailer for sci-fi thriller “Pandorum.” The film takes place 500 years in the future when the human race is trying to migrate from an Earth dying of climate change to a new planet.
Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It’s pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the spacecraft. They can’t remember anything – who are they, what is their mission? The only way out of the chamber is a dark and narrow airshaft. Corporal Bower (Foster), the younger of the two, crawls inside, while the other, Lt. Payton (Quaid), stays behind for guidance on a radio transmitter. As Bower ventures deeper and deeper into the ship, he begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft’s shocking and deadly secrets come unraveled, and the astronauts realize that the survival of mankind hinges on their actions.”
The sci-fi thriller is directed by German filmmaker Christian Alvart (Case 39, Curiosity & the Cat, Antibodies), stars Dennis Quaid, Ben Foster, Antje Traue and Cung Le. The film is also supported by “Twilight” villain Cam Gigandet.
“Pandorum” is scheduled to hit theaters on September 4th.
