THE LAST DAYS ON MARSAero Theatre / October 17, 2013 | 7:30pm
2013, Magnet Releasing, Dir. Ruairi Robinson
The film concerns the first manned mission to Mars, during which a crew member discovers fossilized evidence of bacterial life. When he and another colleague vanishes, the team starts to suspect that the life form they have discovered is not yet dead, and the group begins to fall apart as it awaits for a relief ship.
Set during the last 19 hours of the first manned mission to Mars, “Last Days” stars Liev Schrieber, Elias Koteas, Romola Garai and Olivia Williams. Undeniably gripping, “Mars” is a lean, muscular and fast-moving genre picture that shows that science-fiction smartly done on a budget can hold its own with anything.
