The first teaser trailer for the upcoming sci-fi film Apollo 18
has debuted online.
The feature, produced by Timur Bekmambetov
, directed by Gonzalo López-Galego
and based on a script by Brian Miller
, spins around the concept of what happened if unexplained events took place during a secret mission back to the moon.
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.
Apollo 18 will step into theaters April 22, 2011.
