The Weinstein Company just released this new poster (via IGN) for Apollo 18, their 100% factual documentary about NASA’s undocumented final trip to the moon. Give thanks to Night Watch director Timur Bekmambetov, who was hired by Russia to shoot a documentary about a space station and found this footage that proves unequivocally that we’ve met extraterrestrial life forms.
Get your tinfoil hats ready for March 4th 2011, when Apollo 18 hits theaters. Their official site went up today as well but there’s nothing on it just yet.
For anyone interested in actual space travel, I would highly recommend picking up a copy of Mary Roach’s Packing for Mars, an excellent and entertaining read that’s just as great as we’ve come to expect from the author. Forget the usual documentaries and books on the subject, here Roach finds answers to all the real important questions you’ve had about living in a void. For example, can you die from throwing up in your helmet during a space walk, how to bathe without using water and how long your underwear takes to disintegrate without changing it, and the logistics of having sex in space and how people probably already have (though no one’s talking).
