Moon comes out tomorrow.

MOON // A Film by Duncan Jones

In theaters: June 12, 2009

It's almost Stanly Kuberesk

It is the near future. Astronaut Sam Bell is living on the far side of the moon, completing a three-year contract with Lunar Industries to mine Earth’s primary source of energy, Helium-3. It is a lonely job, made harder by a broken satellite that allows no live communications home. Taped messages are all Sam can send and receive. Thankfully, his time on the moon is nearly over, and Sam will be reunited with his wife, Tess, and their three-year-old daughter, Eve, in only a few short weeks. Finally, he will leave the isolation of “Sarang,” the moon base that has been his home for so long, and he will finally have someone to talk to beyond “Gerty,” the base’s well-intentioned, but rather uncomplicated computer.

It doesn't look this movie will be playing in Santa Barbara any time soon. Looks like I will need to drive to LA to see this one. Really crappy distribution on this film.

You know, even the Sony web site for it's hard to find, doesn't even come up in Google till like the 50th link. I would gladly pay $10 to download a copy to watch on my HDTV. If they were smart, they would make a premium download of this available on Netflix, blockbuster or Amazon.
