We've got the new Pandorum trailer, which is a terrifyingly confusing mix of space Crawlers, skin-peeling madness, and an evil toddler. Take a closer look into the blackened eyes of evil while Ben Foster and Dennis Quaid look for the 60,000 missing passengers. And check out some screencaps below.
Creepy baby people no? Some of these pale beasts are a bit similar to the Crawlers from The Descent, which I'm actually OK with because I loved those fellas, and I think there may be more to these Pandorum nasties.
Here's the official synopsis:
Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It's pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the spacecraft. They can't remember anything - who are they, what is their mission? The only way out of the chamber is a dark and narrow airshaft. Corporal Bower (Foster), the younger of the two, crawls inside, while the other, Lt. Payton (Quaid), stays behind for guidance on a radio transmitter. As Bower ventures deeper and deeper into the ship, he begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft's shocking and deadly secrets come unraveled, and the astronauts realize that the survival of mankind hinges on their actions.
Also, we hear there's a contest surrounding the trailer — if you liked it, post about it on Twitter with the hashtag #Pandorum. (Or just retweet our post about it.) The studio will search for that hashtag, and pick someone to receive a free trip to San Diego Comic Con. Contest rules are here.
The flick hits theaters September 4, 2009.
