According to the new UK trailer for Last Days on Mars, the film is coming “this year,” which is good – I had been wondering when we’d see it. I stopped by the film’s set during production and have been waiting eagerly for when I can tell you what I saw. That day must be coming soon. Get ready for me to wax lyrical about Johnny Harris and Olivia Williams.
It’s an interesting bit of trivia, and might perhaps be meaningful if you’re trying to understand the behind the scenes evolution of this project, that Last Days on Mars is the debut film of Ruairi Robinson who, ultimately, made this instead of the in-development, America-set Akira.
This is the first trailer for the film, though I ran a clip back in May.
From that selection of footage, it looks we’re somewhere between Moon and Prometheus. That’s a long axis. Hopefully Last Days will land at the right end.
Oh, and I’ve got to the end without mentioning Elias Koteas, Goran Kostic, Tom Cullen or Yusra Warsama, but now I have, the entire film’s cast are named on this page somewhere.
