Duncan Jones (David Bowie’s son) will soon be one to remember after his extraordinary sci-fi thriller Moon (review) hits limited theaters on June 12 from Sony Pictures Classics. Months after we brought you five clips, the first trailer has finally found its way online and can be viewed inside. In the film astronaut Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) has a quintessentially personal encounter while stranded on the moon for a three-year period.
Sam Bell is nearing the end of his contract with Lunar. He’s been a faithful employee for 3 long years. His home has been Selene, a moon base where he has spent his days alone, mining Helium 3. The precious gas holds the key to reversing the Earth’s energy crisis. Isolated, determined and steadfast, Sam has followed the rulebook obediently and his time on the moon has been enlightening, but uneventful. The solitude has given him time to reflect on the mistakes of his past and work on his raging temper. He does his job mechanically, and spends most of his available time dreaming of his imminent return to Earth, to his wife, young daughter and an early retirement. But 2 weeks shy of his departure from Selene, Sam starts seeing things, hearing things and feeling strange. And when a routine extraction goes horribly wrong, he discovers that Lunar have their own plans for replacing him… and the new recruit is eerily familiar. Before he can return to Earth, Sam has to confront himself and the discovery that the life he has created, may not be his own. It’s more than his contract that is set to expire.
