Apollo 18 prepares for take-off


There's a reason we never went back to the moon, and you can find out for yourself when the found footage flick Apollo 18 hits DVD and Blu-ray on December 27th. It's being released by Anchor Bay Entertainment on Blu-ray combo pack, as well as DVD. I missed it at the theater, and I do dig the cinema verite style, so I plan on checking it out.

ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT AND DIMENSION FILMS LAUNCH APOLLO 18 ON BLU-RAY™ AND DVD

 Sci-Fi Thriller Heads To Retail On December 27th!

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Anchor Bay Entertainment and Dimension Films announced today the Blu-ray™ and DVD release of the “terrifying” (Fred Topel, CraveOnline.com) and “chilling” (Hunter Daniels, Collider.com) sci-fi thriller, APOLLO 18.  In the same vein as such blockbusters as The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, the film unearths alleged lost Department of Defense footage to construct a riveting story of the events that unfolded during this covert mission to the moon.  Full of tension and suspense, APOLLO 18 blasts into stores on December 27, 2011 with an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and $29.98 for the DVD.

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 7, 1972, was the last manned mission to the moon.  But two years later, in December of 1974, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense.  What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission.  While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.

The APOLLO 18 Blu-ray™ and DVD bonus features include an audio commentary with director Gonzalo López-Gallego and editor Patrick Lussier, deleted and alternate scenes, alternate endings, among other bonus features to be confirmed.  Note: Special features are subject to change.
