I caught the trailer for “Pandorum,” produced by the folks behind the “Resident Evil” movie trilogy, a couple weeks ago and was immediately sold. For me, the imagery summons up fond memories of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic “Alien” and Electronic Arts’ hit 2008 space horror video game “Dead Space.” The brief snippets in the trailer left me wanting for more and, needless to say, I’ll be there opening day when the movie opens on September 18.
Of course, there will be more “Pandorum” love to be had long before the fall release. A select few scenes will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con on July 23 as part of a panel featuring stars Ben Foster, Cung Le and Antje Traue (FYI Twilighters: Cam Gigandet is also in the movie). Fellow star Dennis Quaid will unfortunately not be on-hand, though he’ll have a few words to share with the gathered fans via a special taped greeting. I won’t be at the ’Con myself, but you can be sure I’ll be clicking over to MTV.com on July 23 for a look at those exclusive clips. Check out the trailer below and be afraid.
