'Apollo 18'

'Apollo 18' poster. Okay. Sure. Kinda dumb. But fun. Graphics are a cut above, as if someone cared or saw potential in the material. (Wish I could say the same for some major movies like, say, 'The King's Speech').

If plot/gimmick is strong enough, could draw a good audience.

Directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego, whose 'El Rey de la Montaña' scored some good festival notices. (So did 'Nomadas' and 'Sobre el Arco Iris' -- the guy has a knack).

Written by Brian Miller who, by the looks of it, is a kid whose only previous work is as a production assistant on a TV movie. That could work either way. For high-concept stuff it's not a bad thing to have a newbie on the script.

Here's hoping. Something tells me there's...something here.
