Yet another trailer for director Gonzalo López-Gallego’s found-footage horror film Apollo 18 has hit the interwebs. As you may know by now, Apollo 18 makes use of “archived footage” to prove not only that the United States returned to the moon after its last official launch in 1972, but also that the unofficial Apollo 18 mission is the reason we never went back.
Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) produced the film and even though I’m currently suffering from “found-footage fatigue,” I’ll admit that this third trailer makes things look a touch more insidious and interesting as a result. Check out the new trailer after the jump. Click here for the previous trailer and click here for the teaser trailer. Apollo 18 opens on September 2nd.
Here’s the new trailer:
Here’s the official synopsis for Apollo 18:
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.
