Ruairi Robinson, the brilliant mind behind the chilling bad robot short Blinky™, has made a space movie starring Liev "Sabretooth" Schreiber. Behold, the very first clip from Last Days on Mars.
This will be Robinson's first feature-length film. He was was once attached to the live-action Akira but, thankfully, that was never made. The premise for Last Days on Mars is simple: "A group of astronaut explorers succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force while collecting specimens on Mars." It's based on Sydney J. Bounds’ short story The Animators, and centers around the last few days of a six-month Mars mission.
Some online outlets are whispering that this is a zombies-on-Mars picture, and while that fills us with dread, we deeply loved Blinky™, so we're holding out hope that there's a little more to this than just space zombies.
Last Days on Mars screened at Cannes but does not currently have a US premiere date.
