Stranded in space thriller “EUROPA REPORT” out this summerNews Samuel Zimmerman
Called a unique blend of documentary, alternative history and sci-fi thriller, EUROPA REPORT is based in real-life prospects of the possibility of life on a freezing moon of Jupiter. Of course, that’s the jumpstart for what ultimately aims to be a frightening tale of new discovery.
“When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa’s icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discoveries that may lie in the Europan ocean. After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crewmember, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel, and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined.”
Magnet releases EUROPA REPORT (starring DISTRICT 9’s Sharlto Copley) on Demand June 27 and in select theaters August 2. You can catch its brief teaser above, and keep up with the mission at Europa Ventures.
