The full-length domestic trailer has just arrived online for the indie horror thriller "The Last Days on Mars" starring Liev Schreiber as a leader of a small team of astronauts that make a horrifying discovery of a powerful form of bacteria that begins to infect his crew, leaving them with no choice but to either abandon the infected or just live out their last days on Mars.
This latest trailer includes a lot more footage from the movie than the previously released international teaser, and showcases plenty of the F/X shots that first-time feature director Ruairi Robinson has been known for from his earlier impressive short films, including the Oscar-nominated animated short "Fifty Percent Grey."
On the last day of the first manned mission to Mars, a crew member of Tantalus Base believes he has made an astounding discovery – fossilized evidence of bacterial life. Unwilling to let the relief crew claim all the glory, he disobeys orders to pack up and goes out on an unauthorized expedition to collect further samples. But a routine excavation turns to disaster when the porous ground collapses, and he falls into a deep crevice and near certain death. His devastated colleagues attempt to recover his body. However, when another vanishes they start to suspect that the life-form they have discovered is not yet dead. As the group begins to fall apart it seems their only hope is the imminent arrival of the relief ship Aurora.
