Back in November we were informed that The Weinstein Company had acquired the rights to a movie called Apollo 18, which would be produced by Timur Bekmambetov and directed by Trevor Cawood.
The movie is of the “found footage” variety, taking the canceled NASA mission to the moon and proposing that it did in fact happen but went horribly, horribly wrong. The footage that has been found from the mission show just wrong it went and why they tried to cover it all up at first.
You can see the first trailer and read a synopsis for Apollo 18 by clicking on over now.
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.
