I haven’t done a Trailerrific post in a quite some time now, so I thought I’d start that up again. This time around though I wanted to change the format. Instead of featuring a list of all the trailers that came out, I’ll devote an entire blog post to just one trailer.
It is the near future. Astronaut Sam Bell is living on the far side of the moon, completing a three-year contract with Lunar Industries to mine Earth’s primary source of energy, Helium-3. It is a lonely job, made harder by a broken satellite that allows no live communications home. Taped messages are all Sam can send and receive. Thankfully, his time on the moon is nearly over, and Sam will be reunited with his wife, Tess, and their three-year-old daughter, Eve, in only a few short weeks. Finally, he will leave the isolation of “Sarang,” the moon base that has been his home for so long, and he will finally have someone to talk to beyond “Gerty,” the base’s well-intentioned, but rather uncomplicated computer.
And here’s the trailer:
The more times I see the trailer the more closer I feel I get to figuring this movie out. My tip: if you want to be surprised, don’t watch the trailer too often (or not at all 😉 ).
Moon – Release Date: 12 June (USA limited), 3 September (Australia), not yet announced for Europe or other countries
