David Bowie’s Son Takes Sam Rockwell to the “Moon”

Oh, I’m excited about this one. Here’s the first trailer for Moon, written and directed by Duncan Zowie Heywood Jones, who is David Bowie’s son. Minimalist sci-fi has always been my favorite and Moon looks like it’s going to deliver the goods, ya’ll.

Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is nearing the end of his contract with Lunar. He’s been a faithful employee for 3 long years. His home has been Selene, a moon base where he has spent his days alone, mining Helium 3. The precious gas holds the key to reversing the Earth’s energy crisis.

But 2 weeks shy of his departure from Selene, Sam starts seeing things, hearing things and feeling strange. And when a routine extraction goes horribly wrong, he discovers that Lunar have their own plans for replacing him and the new recruit is eerily familiar. (From IMDB, which I don’t feel like linking up)

I love Sam Rockwell (was he robbed of an Oscar for Confessions of a Dangerous Mind? Yes he was) and the movie also stars the voice of Kevin Spacey as a HAL-type robot that uses emoticons. It’s going to have a limited release, of course, so let’s all pray for Boston.
