Apollo 18 is a movie that is like many shuttle missions with its failure to start. Everytime we turn around the release date is getting bumped and this is despite the fact the buzz is good and the trailers look quite polished and impressive. A small viral buzz started last year when Bob Weinstein said the film is based entirely off actual facts but that buzz has fizzled out as the movies release date got moved the same month it was supposed to come out.
When Bob Weinstein more then hinted that the movie Apollo 18 is based off true facts I did a pile of reading and digging and put together a piece on the True Story of Apollo 18 which you might want to read once you watch the new trailer below.
Just this week a brand new trailer has been released for the film and just like the earlier trailers this trailer for Apollo 18 shows alot of promise and can be summarized as Blair Witch heads to the moon.
Synposis: 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.
Apollo 18 will be in theaters August 26th if all goes well.
