Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
It's time for a young African American to meet with his white girlfriend's parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience will give way to a nightmare.
Six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet. The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism - the first example of life beyond Earth. But..things aren't always what they seem. As the crew begins to conduct research, and their methods end up having unintended consequences, the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected. Written by
This was the second time Hiroyuki Sanada played an astronaut. He previously played one in Sunshine (2007). Both movies also co-starred an actor who has played a Marvel Comic Book character. Chris Evans has played Johnny Storm in The Fantastic Four and its sequel (2005-2007) and currently plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He co-stars in Sunshine with Hiroyuki Sanada. Ryan Reynolds plays Deadpool and co-stars in this movie. Ryan Reynolds also played DC Comics character Hal Jordan in the critically panned Green Lantern (2011). See more »
As demonstrated by the fires on Apollo 1 and the Mir space stations, open flames are so dangerous they would NEVER be used inside the space station - for any reason. See more »
The music for the end titles begins with the song Spirit in the Sky. This was used during the live broadcast from the ill-fated Apollo XIII moon mission. A recreation of this broadcast, along with this song, was included in the film of the same name. The irony is intentional, as the song is about dying. See more »
I was highly annoyed by the unprofessional and error-prone behaviour of the movie characters. Throughout the movie, you will ask yourself: How can he be so stupid? Why is she not doing the obvious? Why are the astronauts emphasising proper procedures, then five seconds later breaking their own rules? How come a former soldier is breaking the chain of command? There is nothing realistic about the behaviour of these characters. In the end, I just hated them. I do not believe that there is a demographic that likes movies like this. Either the script was written by an incompetent author, or the directors are ignorant of what makes a good movie.
