Este filme de ciencia ficción marca el debut del director inglés Duncan Jones. Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) ha sido contratado por tres años como minero en una base situada en el lado oscuro de la Luna. Acompañado únicamente por el robot GERTY, Bell se ha acostumbrado a la soledad, por lo que al faltar dos semanas para volver a casa comienza a dudar de lo que sucede a su alrededor.

MOON Trailer in German Ahead of July Cinema Release

Wehay! From Koch Media, here is the German MOON trailer ahead of the July Cinema release. Looking like MOON will now be opening on 60 screens! Good Times 🙂

In einer nicht allzu weit entfernten Zukunft ist das Energieproblem auf der Erde endlich gelöst, seit die Firma Lunar Industries auf dem Mond den Brennstoff Helium-3 abbaut und es zur Benutzung auf der Erde abtransportieren lässt

Astronaut Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) ist auf dem Mond stationiert, um die einsame Aufgabe des Treibstoffabbaus zu überwachen. Nach knapp drei Jahren auf der Mondbasis führt er seinen Job nur noch mechanisch aus und verbringt die meiste Zeit mit dem Gedanken an seine bevorstehende Rückkehr zur Erde, um endlich seine Frau und ihre gemeinsame Tochter wiederzusehen. Aber zwei Wochen vor seiner Abreise beginnt Sam seltsame Dinge zu sehen und zu hören. Nachdem dann eine Routinekontrolle schief geht, befürchtet er, dass Lunar Industries anscheinend ganz eigene Vorstellungen von seinem Verbleib hat…

Great 8/10 review from Independentfilme

Vote MOON for St Patrick’s Day London Screening

jameson cult film club

How does a St Patrick’s Day screening of Duncan Jones’ MOON starring Sam Rockwell, at the Royal Institute in London sound? Good? Exactly what we thought as well when Ben Mortimer pointed us in the direction of this vote off for the Jameson Cult Film Club >>HERE<<

As you can see from the above image, there is a public vote between ‘MOON’, ‘Donny Darko’, and the 1953 ‘War of the Worlds’ all you have to do, to ensure that it is ‘MOON’ that you want to see, is head over to the site, cast your vote before the closing date of January 25th 2010. Ticket registration will open on 17th February 2010, the venue will be decked out suitably for the winning film, so this promises to be a very special evening for the MOON fans (should we win) as the Jameson Cult Film Club says:

Together with our friends at Empire we have come up with a choice of three cult Sci-Fi movies, to screen at the Royal Institute, in London on St Patrick’s Day, March 17.

Many of you will recognise the venue from their Christmas Lectures, which are televised from the lecture hall every year. What you may not realise is that this fantastic venue has also been the home to some of the most prestigious scientific minds in the UK (including Michael Faraday), and some of the most important scientific discoveries of the last two decades were made within its very walls.

The venue will be dressed to complement the winning film; you will be surrounded by science wonders such as Faraday’s working lab in the basement for pre-screening drinks, before heading up into the famous lecture hall for the screening itself, followed by an after-party in the upstairs rooms of the Institute.

Tippety top night by the sound of it, so, if you want to see MOON, get on over and vote now.

Moon: ‘Moon’ Opening in Holland 15th October 2009

Hoi Holland!

Donderdag in premiere!

‘Moon’ opens in Netherlands Thursday 15th October.

Have had a quick mooch about and found it is scheduled to show at the following venue:

Kriterion – Amsterdam: http://www.kriterion.nl/news/741/15/Moon/

And in case you don’t know already, here is what it’s all about:

Astronaut Sam Bell woont al bijna drie jaar op de maan in opdracht van Lunar Industries. Hij leeft daar een eenzaam bestaan en door een defecte satelliet heeft hij amper contact met zijn vrouw Tess en driejarige dochter Eve. Zijn enige maatje aan boord is Gerty: een robot. Onverwacht krijgt Sam gezondheidsproblemen en gaat hallucineren waardoor hij een bijna-fataal ongeluk krijgt.

Als hij terug is op zijn basisstation, ontmoet hij zijn jongere en gewelddadigere “ik”. Deze tweede Sam beweert dat hij daar is om hetzelfde driejarige contract uit te dienen. Dan begint de strijd van de ‘echte’ Sam om zo snel mogelijk uit te vinden wat er verkeerd is gegaan en hoe hij op een veilige manier terugkomt naar huis.

Please help all of Holland get a slice of ‘Moon’ by adding any additional cinemas in the comments below. Dank U Wel!
