Here's the link for the trailer:

It looks good!

Doesn't hurt that there are some design homages to "Alien" in there.




Can you spot 'em? Smile

Thanks for the heads up on that one!
Looks really good.
Looks like it's referenced 2001 a bit aswell.

Here's a cool shot that reminds me of ALIEN & 2001...

Was just looking on google and came across 5 clips of the movie.

http://www.collider.com/entertainment/news/article.asp/aid/10483/tcid/1

It's out in July here in the UK and i can't wait.

Also, found a Q&A on Youtube.

I see the helmets design is very similar with the "skylight" openings in the sides, and the famous "purina" checker design symbol is all over the ship. The ships doors/airlocks and corridors also look very similar to Alien.

Excellent, Andy! Those are the things I noticed. Smile

Also, if you look next to the 'purina' checker in the display it says "purge"!

Also, lots of the signs on the walls look like the ones in ALIEN.

I totaly agree with what's been said in the previous posts, but... it looks a little cheap compared to ALIEN and 2001, don't you think ???

It's a low budget movie but i think it looks really well made.
I don't think anything can beat ALIEN & 2001 really though Very Happy

Even at a low-budget, it`s still to expensive for our wallet (as in million of $). Commandable efforts non the less.

Just came from seeing "Moon" starring Sam Rockwell. You should see it if you get the chance. I'd say it is a major, major science fiction film, just mindblowingly well done. Think "2001" with notes of "Silent Running", Tarkovsky's "Solaris" and "Blade Runner" (with more than a little of the quirkiness of "Primer", but without that film's mind-bending contortions of logic).

The film has "secrets" which it would be a shame to spoil, so I won't go into detail. Suffice to say it captures the soul of SF like no film I have seen since... well for a LONG time. It is like a Philip K Dick story written by Arthur C Clarke.

EASY to see how another filmmaker would have made oatmeal out of this thing. Its biggest triumph is that it is NOT a big summer blockbuster with all that implies.

Highest rating. Cool
