's latest comeback effort, Stranded, has got a new trailer and considering this B-movie sci-fi horror has been directed by the same guy who helmed the catastrophically awful Battlefield Earth, , it doesn't look that bad. Before we go getting all horrified in space though, here's the synopsis for some contextualization:
When the isolated U.S. military moonbase is bombarded by a rogue meteor storm, Colonel Gerard Brauchman (Christian Slater) and his small crew are cut off from Earth with their life support failing. Before long, the crew discovers the meteors harbored alien spores…and they’re replicating. Now a vicious, shape-shifting predatory life form is loose inside the crippled facility, picking off victims one by one. Locked in a desperate fight for survival, Brauchman and the terrified remaining astronauts have one final mission…keep the creature from escaping the moon and finding a new food supply on Earth.
Got it? OK, here's the trailer:
Stranded looks like it's taken a huge dollop of spaced-based influence from Prometheus, Sphere and perhaps even Event Horizon, but it could be decent little sci-fi horror.
Stranded opens on July 26th.
Were you guys impressed by the Stranded trailer?
