The new film Apollo 18 looks to be a project that can fulfill both of those requirements, and perhaps more. Here’s the official synopsis to help peak your interest:
Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense.
What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.
This movie combines at least two of the things I love: space and monsters. How could I not be interested? How about you?
Check out the full poster after the jump. Apollo 18 arrives in theaters on April 22nd.
