The Last Days on Mars, filmed mainly in Jordan (which I guess won the prize of 'which part of Earth looks most like Mars') follows the demise of the first manned mission to the Red Planet. Schreiber plays a crew member at Mars' Tantalus Base, who plummets into a deadly cravass in search of atrophied bacterial life...
Are there any space movies where everything is hunky dory and lovely all the time? Even Space Jam was plagued by Mister Swackhammer and the evil Nerdlucks...More importantly, does Last Days of Mars look amazing?
Last Days on Mars screened at this year's Cannes Film Festival and will be available for wider theatrical release on December 6, 2013.
