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).
Magnet Releasing has set it for On Demand on October 31, with a theatrical roll-out planned for December 6. Here’s the films first trailer, which comes out of the UK for it’s September 19 release. With Gravity gaining tons of momentum, this looks like an awesome home video compliment!
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.“
