Trailer Watch: Final Pandorum trailer

If you like a good scare, this looks promising. The final trailer for Pandorum shows some super-creepy promise, but it also sounds a lot like Event Horizon meets the Reavers from Firefly, neither of which I feel brave enough to subject myself to for a solid two hours. (Event Horizon is one of the few movies I’ve refused to finish, because I found it so repellent.)

In the sci-fi horror film Pandorum, Ben Foster and Dennis Quaid wake up on an abandoned spacecraft with no idea who they are, how long they’ve been asleep, or what their mission is. The two soon discover they’re actually not alone — and the reality of their situation is more horrifying than they could have imagined.”

I really love the premise of people waking up in the middle of a decades-long interstellar voyage, however I think I’ll wait to see the sci-fi romance approach with Jon Spaihts’ Passengers, in which a man (Keanu Reeves) “is awakened 90 years before anyone else. Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he awakens a beautiful woman.”

Now that I think about it, the plot of Passengers could just as easily gone the horror route, too.

Pandorum comes out on September 4, 2009.

    The Pandorum trailer is excellent. This is the first I’ve heard of this movie, but now I really want to watch it. Not to mention that I loved Event Horizon (no one else in my family did), so this sounds like my kind of flick…

    And yeah, I also have a thing for people waking up in the middle of long interstellar voyages. If you haven’t read the script for Passengers, it is pure awesomeness and is available here: http://www.whoaisnotme.net/scripts/PSG_xx_UD.pdf. Enjoy.

    It’s not so much a romance as a philosophical, existential sci-fi drama with deliciously sadistic bits thrown in here and there for fun. Best script I’ve ever read.
