The Last Day On Mars Trailer Now Online



The first trailer for the science-fiction thriller, The Last Day On Mars, is now online.

Per the title, The Last Day On Mars sees the first manned mission to Mars go awry on its last day as some sort of new life form is found leading to a possible deadly infection.

Here is the official synopsis with more:

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.

The Last Day On Mars has a September 19, 2013 UK release date with a video-on-demand October 31st release directed by Ruairi Robinson starring Liev Schreiber, Romola Garai, Elias Koteas, Olivia Williams, Johnny Harris, Goran Kostic, and Tom Cullen.
