Final Apollo 18 trailer

Apollo18.jpgThis looks like the final trailer for the "found footage" film in space Apollo 18, which tells a story kept secret by the U.S. Government for so long, that Apollo 18 went to the moon and discovered something horrifying, which is why they have never returned since.

The story is told through found footage by hand held cameras and the camera footage inside the capsule, which does raise some interesting questions which I'll cover in a moment. I will say that the trailer and what I'm about to talk about probably raises more about the film than we've heard so far.

The blurb for Apollo 18 goes like this:

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.

The trailers we've seen so far haven't really shown us too much about what's going on, but this new trailer definitely does. It shows us a lot more of what is happening and with the final words from the trailer and a sudden realisation from what the plot is telling us, I wonder if I might have realised something about the film that I haven't before.

Let's start with the new trailer for Apollo 18 through Bloody Disgusting:

So there you go, Apollo 18. That trailer shows us what affect whatever it is has on the crew, or at least one of them, and in a rather advanced state. It's not something we've seen before in the detail it's shown here.

Then it struck me. As soon as I gave it a little more thought I realised something. If the blurb is telling us that they never went back, how did we get the footage? Was it all transmitted back automatically? Perhaps, but when we hear the closing lines of the trailer I wonder if it does actually return to Earth, possibly giving us a hair raising ending and the chance of a sequel?

What do you think? Is Apollo 18 suddenly looking more attractive?

To all those people out there raising questions about the movie, let me tell you, that's just what it is "JUST A MOVIE", just think about this, if it was true it was to be never released, NASA would have never allowed it, then how comes nobody can tell how they got that footage under quotes. Also these misterious alien form had to be extremelly intelligent to reveal themselves just about at the right time and never been seen. Then to all those asking why they, who made the movie, were so eager to drive people to their website posted at the end of the movie and beginning... come on why does anybody who builds a website want to drag people to it??? think about the ammount of people that watched it and would go to the website after, I myself tried to go just for the hell of it without any luck, too late it was not there... Now the big question... is there any extraterrestial life out there, most likely yes, universe is vast too gigantic, is there any life on the moon, maybe yes but tell it to someone who cares unless you are planning to go there on your next family road trip.
