The official trailer for Sebastian Cordero’s sci-fi horror flick Europa Report reminds me a lot of the sci-fi movies I’d rent on VHS around 1996-97. Which is to say it has a little bit of that low budget Event Horizon vibe.
Penned by Philip Gelatt, the film tells of “a group of astronauts, handpicked from around the world, who make the arduous journey to Jupiter’s frigid, glacial moon Europa in search of extraterrestrial life. The only thing more intimidating and unpredictable than the trip itself is what the team will encounter upon arrival…” The film stars District 9‘s Sharlto Copley alongside Michael Nyqvist, Daniel Wu, Anamaria Marinca, Christian Camargo, and Karolina Wydra.
It opens June 27th on VOD and in theaters Aug 2nd from Magnet Releasing.
