Approaching the Unknown is an upcoming science fiction drama about the first man that will set foot on Mars.
Watching the trailer you will notive influences from several movies. You get the drama elements and indie style from Moon, but also from last year’s Martian where astronauts’ solitude is explored as well. It also feels like a low budget Interstellar.
Anyhow, it looks really promising and maybe a hidden gem for 2016 among the more obvious anticipated blockbuster. It won’t make a lot of money, but it will win over the hearts of critics and audiences.
Mark Strong as Captain William D. Stanaforth, Sanaa Lathan as Captain Emily Maddox, Charles Baker as Captain Frank Worsely, Anders Danielsen Lie as Greenstreet and Bettina Skye as Nasa Technician.

Approaching the unknown is directed and written by Mark Elijah Rosenberg. Premieres on 3 June 2016.
