“There’s a reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.”

A new trailer for ‘Apollo 18’ has been released for the Timur Bekmambetov (‘Nightwatch’, ‘Wanted’) produced film. Set to be released on April 22, 2011 and directed by newcomer Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego, the found footage, documentary-style thriller looks set to bring some claustraphobic scares to the moon.

About the film:
“Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, 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.”
