Sony Pictures Classics decided today was the day to begin marketing Moon a film starring Sam Rockwell as Sam Bell, a contractor who has been working on his own on the surface of the moon for the past three years monitoring the tractors that harvest the moon’s surface for helium energy. However, as he has approximately 20 days left on his contract he is beginning to mentally unravel with several hallucinations and flashes that can’t be explained. All he wants to do is get home to his wife and kid, but as he crashes his lunar rover getting home will soon become only one of many obstacles.
I actually just saw this film this past Monday and in brief I will say it is mildly interesting. It’s not necessarily the amazing film I have seen all the other movie bloggers declaring it to be following its Sundance premiere, but it is a decent twist on the sci-fi genre that will excite some and will definitely not have anyone leaving the theaters upset.
But enough of that, let’s get to the goods. Sony Classics has released the trailer, the official poster and 18 new images from Moon and I have them all for you.
The trailer you can watch directly below in Flash format or you can watch or download yourself a high-definition copy from IGN right here. On top of that the poster and the new images can all be seen by clicking here or on the teaser pic of Rockwell above.
There is one interesting thing about the poster, it says “950,000 miles from home” and since the entire film takes place on the surface of the moon, and according to McGraw-Hill “the average distance from the moon to the Earth is 238,857 miles (384,392 kilometers),” I am not sure if this is a mistake or if I missed something entirely while watching the film.
Moon is set to hit theaters on June 12.
