The Moon’s getting to be a crowded place with Sam Rockwell and a bunch of Transformers and now word of the Soviets, and some some space monster thingies all having set up shop there.  Some clues to the latter can be seen in three new TV spots for Apollo 18, which are all over at YouTube.  The synopsis:

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon.  But in December of 1974, 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 clips are below.  Apollo 18 lands on September 2nd.
