A director I’ve been championing for years here on Bloody Disgusting is Ruairi Robinson, who took Cannes by storm with the world premiere of his first ever feature, The Last Days on Mars, starring Liev Schreiber (Scream 2, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) alongside Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense, Rushmore), Romola Garai (One Day, Atonement), Elias Koteas (Shutter Island, Zodiac), Tom Cullen (Weekend), Goran Kostic (In the Land of Blood and Honey, Taken), and Johnny Harris (Snow White and the Huntsman).

The Last Days on Mars, which was previously titled The Animators, “follows the story of an astronaut crew on Mars on the verge of a major breakthrough, having collected rock specimens that reveal microscopic evidence of life. In their last hours on the planet, two astronauts go back to a cavernous valley on the surface of Mars to collect further evidence for their discovery, but a routine excavation turns deadly when one of them falls to his death and his body is taken as a host and re-animated by the very life form they sought to discover.

A new video featuring Robinson and actress Williams has been shared out of Cannes, along with the first ever image. Go Ruairi!

    There seems to be a bit of a renaissance in sci-fi. And hard-sci-fi, to boot. I’m on board with that shit, yo.

      Count me in, too. I really need a good sci-fi horror/thriller after suffering through crap like Apollo 18, The Fourth Kind and the mediocre Dark Skies. No offense to anyone who like those movies.
