First we get a teaser trailer from The Weinstien Company for the upcoming film, Apollo 18, and now we have the theatrical trailer. The difference between the two of them? The theatrical is a whole minute shorter than the teaser and it only shows the “creepy” scenes. This new trailer pretty much goes as far as showing us some of the same things the teaser did and barely touching some new clips. Regardless, we see a lot of the same stuff because they don’t want to give too much away. Let’s not forget how we have been bounced around on the release calendar, seeing as Apollo 18 was scheduled for earlier this year and then it got bumped back to September 2, 2011.
Even though the theatrical trailer for Apollo 18 isn’t necessarily the best, in my opinion, the movie still looks quite interesting. The teaser did enough to grab my attention. I’m hoping that bouncing it around on the release calendar doesn’t affect it’s box office numbers when it hits theaters.
Check out the trailer and the synopsis below thanks to our friends over at TheFilmStage. They were also kind enough to provide new poster art from Russia for Apollo 18. That looks pretty badass.
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.
