Hear that? That’s the sound of the motion poster for the upcoming sci-fi/horror flick, Pandorum. Check it out, it’s pretty icky.

When Devin ran the trailer a few months ago, he mentioned an Alien meets Event Horizon vibe, which is certainly accurate. I’m also detecting strong shades of The Descent, along with a distinct callback to The Matrix with one character’s strong advice to “Run… run, and don’t look back.” Either way, I’m happy to reflect that the release of Pandorum in a month (September 25th) will partially close what has been a very strong summer for Science Fiction. Let’s hope that this one, with Ben Foster and Dennis one-notch-below-Joe-level-gruff Quaid, will close out the year with real strength.
