Magnet has released the first trailer and poster for director Ruairi Robinson’s sci-fi thriller The Last Days on Mars.  The film follows the crew of a Mars base that discovers fossilized evidence of bacterial life, but their unauthorized expedition leads to disaster when one of the crew members falls into a sinkhole, and the life-form they’ve discovered might still be alive.  The trailer promises an interesting twist on the Alien-esque premise, though it’s disappointing to see that it appears to give away almost the entire movie.  Nevertheless, the cast is promising and the VFX are impressive, so maybe Mars can be a saving grace following a disappointing summer of sci-fi.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster.  The film stars Liev Schreiber, Elias Koteas, Olivia Williams, Romola Garai, Johnny Harris, Goran Kostic, and Tom CullenThe Last Days on Mars will be available VOD on October 31st and hits theaters on December 6th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Last Days on Mars:

On the last day of the first manned mission to Mars, a crew member of Tantalus Base believes he has made an astounding discovery – fossilized evidence of bacterial life. Unwilling to let the relief crew claim all the glory, he disobeys orders to pack up and goes out on an unauthorized expedition to collect further samples. But a routine excavation turns to disaster when the porous ground collapses, and he falls into a deep crevice and near certain death. His devastated colleagues attempt to recover his body. However, when another vanishes they start to suspect that the life-form they have discovered is not yet dead. As the group begins to fall apart it seems their only hope is the imminent arrival of the relief ship Aurora.

    Made me think it will be a cross between Alien and the Black Oil storyline from the X-Files for some reason.

  • MEY

    Yes, it resembles the story of Alien without aliens… on Mars.
    The vehicles, the base, interiors look fantastic.

    I hope it will be real science-fiction… at last.

    And I love Elias Koteas…

    Nice production values but I don’t think there was a single original idea. At least as far as the trailer is concerned it would appear I’ve seen that movie 20 times already!

    I actually thought Oblivion was way above average.

    Interesting piece of info: the film is based on the short story ‘The Animators’ by Sydney James Bounds.

    Do you know when this short story was written? In 1975. NO COMMENT!

    (Alien – 1979)

    • MEY

      Sorry, Alien – 1977, but it does’n change the fact that the short story was created before Alien.

      • MEY

        I was right in the first comment, Alien was finished in 1979.
