This all sound very interesting, and in a few days I'm going to have to find the time to dig into it. Promising.

1st trailer Europa Report

first trailer for the science-fiction film "Europa Report" has been launched onto the Internet, and it just might be the most realistic — and harrowing — depiction of space travel on the big screen in years.
1:50 length 1080p trailer here:

i just skimmed it. i don't want to ruin the film for me.
I'll go over a friend's house and pay for VOD in late June.

Excellent trailer. Between this, Gravity, and Elysium, I'm really excited about this year's science-fiction films.

Three somewhat serious-minded SF films in the same year, and I swear to you I'm going to actually see them in the theater. That hasn't happened since, what, 1982?

2009 wasn't so bad. Moon, District 9, Splice, and a couple of decent blockbusters which I know you hate.

Re: "Europa" a [contemporary space adventure] in dev.

Trailer looks fantastic, but I feel like we've been down this road before, on Apollo 18. Hope I'm wrong, since I'd like to see this sort of sci-fi flick, with it's ultra-realistic spin on things, take off (ha ha).

These are guesses, but I'm putting them in spoiler tags, so *warning*:

Re: "Europa" a [contemporary space adventure] in dev.

Much of that trailer looks like a blatant rip off of 2010 crossed with the Blair Witch Project as others have said. Is there a meaningful subtext or is it just another horror flick set in a space context?

Re: "Europa" a [contemporary space adventure] in dev.

The first minute and a half looks great. Then there's an awful lot of screaming. It's like they started out with 2001, realized it would never fly with the contemporary audience and turned it into Alien. We'll see....

Video on demand next week

Still, unapologetically pro-science films are sufficiently rare as to make this one’s earnestness seem all the more refreshing.

To me the years 1979-1982 were probably the best stretch ever.

Good choice of influences to describe how the trailer's being used to market the movie.
