^I doubt one can make a movie about an expedition to Jupiter without being aware of 2001 looming over everything one does. But aside from that, 2001 and 2010 were two of the few space films ever made that strove for a realistic portrayal of space travel, and Europa Report is another. So inevitably there are going to be some similarities.
Very true. And we can always use more, which is why I'll be looking forward to this.
