We haz a movie forum?
Hmmmm...alien monsters on the moon in this, not werewolves.
I liked the Soviet gear. A couple of N1s finally failed to blow up, apparently.
As an aside, here's my infographic on Apollo/Saturn vs the Soviet moon rocket...
Moscow's Secret Moon Plan - The N-1 Rocket (Infographic) | Space Race | Moon Exploration | Space.com
As an even more aside, I remember the hardcover grab-bag coffeetable books masquerading as "Encyclopaedias" of the US and Soviet space programmes in the 70s. Since nobody (outside the CIA) knew what the N1 looked like, the artist's conceptions were like giant Protons, for some reason, instead of anything like the traditional Soviet truss-interstage rockets. When the USSR fell apart in 1990 and the first real N1 images came out publicly, I couldn't have been more delighted: a classic truss-frame rocket on a giant scale. Still think it's the best-looking booster ever designed. (The free Ralph Currell paper model is excellent, btw.)
I actually want to see this movie as the early space program and cold war era space programs always fascinated me.
Looking forward to seeing this one!
Reminds me of a movie in the late 80's called Moontrap with Walter Koenig and Bruce Campbell
i wonder if it was filmed in the same gymnasium in texas as Apollo 11

Sweet! This is the (kind of) movie I was hoping for when I first saw the trailer of Transformers 3 in the theater.
Yeah there are three of these aliens-on-the-moon things this year! The trailer for T3 Dark side of the Moon, which has Apollo 11 finding something buried right next to their landing site... and also there's a film called "Dark Moon" coming out, which I don't know very much about, but it also has to do with a secret mission to the moon.
Wow, this looks awesome!!!
As part of the viral marketing campaign, they created the following page:
cerberus station 9
It has "secret" documents on SA514 and how Apollo 18, 19 and 20 were reactivated.
To access the second, third and forth documents, the password is "apollosoyuz"
^Thanks for the info!
Even if the movie sucks it looks like we at least will get to see some Saturn V footage on the big screen which is always cool. Looking forward to seeing the movie!
