On the heels of various bizarre reports (from China) of a NASA coverup on the moon, Dimension Films/The Weinstein Company has unrelieved a badass teaser poster for their sci-fi horror pic Apollo 18, which teases the tagline “There’s a reason we’ve never gone back to the moon…” Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego (King of the Hill) is directing with Russian visionary Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch) producing for a March 4, 2011 release (my birthday is gonna rock!) The only info is that it’ll be an extraterrestrial film that was greenlit when Bekmambetov presented film footage purported to have been shot by the crew of Apollo 18. That moon mission from the early 70s was officially canceled by NASA, but according to urban legend, it actually happened. Timur’s footage shows signs of alien life, and the events of the mission are built into a thriller story line. In addition, when searching for this footage, one might discover the following viral video lurking about the Web.
