New APOLLO 18 Trailer!

Nordling here.

I like found footage movies.  There have been some bad ones, for sure, but I like the concept when done right.  I think it really puts the audience in the moment and the world of the film, but I understand that it's a horror genre subset that gets a lot of criticism, simply because it's been copycatted to death after BLAIR WITCH.  But I think APOLLO 18 is different.  For one thing, if the film taps into the utter desolation and quiet nature of space, I think it could be pretty damn scary.  We'll know September 2, 2011!  Official 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.

Here's the new trailer:

I'm a NASA Apollo junkie so this is right in my wheelhouse.  Nordling, out.

    by THE_CHOPPAH

  • I wonder if Crapone will give it a glowing review. Sorry, I take that back, because it depends wholly on whether he gets a set visit and the filmmakers decide to stroke Harry's ballsack. A more important question is whether, after Crapone loves the hell out of this movie and tells us all to go see it, and then we go see it and it's fucking offensively, embarrassingly, SHAMEFULLY terrible ... when we confront crapone with how fucking awful it is, will he: (A) say "IT'S YOUR FAULT YOU FELL FOR THE HYPE" [just like he did with Paranormal Activity ... pitiful] (B) admit it's a shit movie and he's a shit shill of a reviewer (C) chalk it up to "difference of opinion" with some moronically defensive posturing (D) call talkbackers and the public at large "bastards" and "bitches" essentially just for pointing out his shallow stupidity

  • Looks shit which is either why they bumped it or are trying a second time. Waste of money, waste of time.

    CHOPPAH reviews APOLLO 18

    by THE_CHOPPAH

    Watched that again recently. The first hour is still really good. But I had forgotten how much it descends into a big-budget A-Team episode by the end...rather dull extended shootouts with clunky editing. I guess that marked the moment where no-name guy's destiny lay in movies that were more about horror than comedy, for much of the next decade. I was so hopeful when some direct-to-video bullshit came out that it heralded the return of both no-name guy and the other no-name guy as genuinely dramatic actors. But it was a false dawn.

Any help would be appreciated as I'm a retard when it comes to the internet

  • June 29, 2011, 4:44 p.m. CST

    yeah, titus he does that a lot

    by hey_kobe_tell_me_how_your_ass_tastes

    bsb hates movies, and he barely disguises it. what pisses me off about people on this site though is how they just casually dismiss his film hatred or try and rationalize it or give choppah an excuse - which even choppah to his warped credit, dismisses because he wants his hatred known - but they still ignore and excuse his behavior, just look at the others who profess they like choppah just because he might have a witticism once every three weeks of constant posting i dont give a fuck if they hate me, but this is my hobby he hates, and so I and others point that out, he has a history on here of anti-film rhetoric, but some assholes cant see beyond a slightly amusing post of his from one minute ago, or ignore his anti-film digs because they are afraid of what that says about them because they like choppah, all those whiny bitches will jump on anyone who even hints at being anti-film or prejudice against homosexuals, but not one of them not one, will speak out against the_choppah's overt hatred of good movies. fuck them

    there is a way to get around his annoying 'chopping'...instead of clicking 'Expand All' in the threads, just manually click the individual posts...definitely makes scrolling thrugh the threads harder but it's the only way to bypass certain annoyances...maybe one day AICN will update their forum software where you can edit, delete, ignore posts/posters etc but until that day comes we have to deal with serial talkbackers like choppah

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    I would have liked it if they had attempted to film this movie with period-specific equipment. Even when you add the fake dust, hairs, etc., you can still tell that the footage isn't remotely 40 years old... In a film like this, authenticity is what sells it. There's a reason why films like Cannibal Holocaust hold up so well...

  • And I've come to like some of the work of Reeves (good job on Let Me In) and Abrams (ST) separately, but Cloverfield was a gob-smacking nexus of retardation and stolen set pieces. Ya can't do a 'found' footage film..which fundamentally seeks to add authenticity through realism and do shit like Hollywood sound effects, utterly one dimensional casting central characters and complete holes of logic.

    What did Armstrong say about not going bavk to the moon? I know I probably shouldn't be too excited for this movie but, like Nordling, I am a sucker for alien stories and am fascinated with the Apollo history so this should be good cheese for me. On another note, does anyone else realize how many UFO sightings have been in the news lately? More than usual it seems. There was a mass sighting in London a couple days ago with plenty of vids and multiple perspectives on YouTube. In HD as well as mid afternoon. Just search "UFO London 2011."

    The worst thing about the internet has got to be all the mopes that spam boards with useless bullshit while adding nothing of value to the discussion. Its ok to do it 1x in a vain attempt to appear to be cool, funny, or whatever retarded reason the guy choose. But to do it a dozen times or better? Get off your PC, put down your can of pringles and your bottle of mountain dew code red and take your 29 year old ass out of your momma's basement and go outside and find something else to do to burn off your retard energy.

He says, "CHOP, can you please lay off of me. I'm not really sure how to respond. I'm trying to eat while attempting trying to beat This burrito in my Supes underoos." la la la, di da da La la, di di da da dum (CHORUS) CHOP us a fool, you're the CHOPPAH man CHOP us a fool tonight Well, we're all in the mood for some CHOPPIN' And you've got us all feelin' all right Now Cobes at the bar is a friend of mine He lets me in the Dojo for free, And he's quick with a joke and he'll roll ya a smoke But there's some place that he'd rather be He says, "CHOP, I believe this is killing me," As his smile ran away from his face, "Well I'm sure that I could be a karate star If I could get out of AICN." Oh, la la la, di da da La la, di da da da dum Now ceejay's a Transformers lover Who's never had desire for a wife And there's my friend Asi, who's indeed quite crazy and wants to end JarJar Abrams' life.

(CHORUS) CHOP us a fool, you're the CHOPPAH man CHOP us a fool tonight Well, we're all in the mood for some CHOPPIN' And you've got us all feelin' all right It's a pretty good crowd for a Wednesday And my buddy Quint gives me a smile 'Cause he knows that it's me the geeks've been comin' to see To whine about their life for a while And my CHOPPING, it befits a true carnivore And Ryan Dunn's remains smell like a beer The geeks sit at home, buffing their meat dome And say, "CHOP, so what if I'm queer?" Oh, la la la, di da da La la, di da da da dum (CHORUS) CHOP us a fool, you're the CHOPPAH man CHOP us a fool tonight Well, we're all in the mood for some CHOPPIN' And you've got us all feelin' all right

    by wcolbert

    The question is, why on Earth would they need to secretely launch an Apollo 18? I mean, by Gene Cernan's last walk on the moon in 17, the whole thing was old hat- the public had grown tired of it, nobody cared. So I have to wonder...what's the premise here that this is secretive? And why would the soviets have sent a secret mission as well? In those days, they'd have trumpeted it across the globe, things being as they were between Russia and the US. Hmm. I'll give it a watch to find out...though I don't think I've ever been particularly impressed with found footage films. I watched Blair Witch on Halloween, at midnight, in a tiny town of 500 people, surrounded by inky black woods and bluffs...and I was not frightened in the least.

    by Zombiana_Jones

    Seriously, it's horrible. That sound at the end is like something that came out of eating 6-day-old Taco Bell...I literally had to rewatch the trailer to believe what I was fuckin' hearing...An amplified 'man shitting on microphone' noise. It's not hard to make a bass-heavy, resonant sweep NOT sound like flatulence, you know.... I seriously 'bout crapped MY pants I laughed so damn hard at that...No, I'm sorry, i'll never be able to get past that...TOTALLY ruined the entire movie for me. It's a joke now.
