POSTER/TRAILER: Duncan Jones' Moon...

So, as I was writing my summer movie season preview, a small little trailer was released, and set the blogosphere a flame. It comes to us from Duncan Jones, and is the first trailer for my number 4 film from the month of June, Moon, and if I had seen this before posting that preview, it would have easily been my number 2. Check it out below, with its first, gorgeous, poster. Thanks to FirstShowing for the heads up!

Astronaut Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his intelligent computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of Helium 3, a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.

Moon is directed by first-time filmmaker Duncan Jones, a former ad exec turned filmmaker of only a sci-fi short from 2000 called Whistle previously. The original story was written by Jones, and the screenplay was written by Nathan Parker. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was bought by Sony Pictures Classics. Moon will arrive in limited theaters starting on June 12th this year.

Come back later for more news, notes, and my review of Observe and Report!

Go see something good!
