For all you Si-Fi enthusiasts/ fanatics this movie is the one to spend your hard earned money on!Its exhilarating all through, very smartly written by Alex Garland and made by an absolutely brilliant director, Danny Boyle.After I watched this movie I thought to my self,THIS is why I'm in the entertainment business'. As a conceptual design student I can tell you that its watching movies like these that will always want me to be associated with films like these and hope to work with good directors like Paul Greengrass, Alfonso Cuaron, Danny Boyle and the likes.
With the exception to the design of the Icarus itself, there is no real out of the ordinary design work, but very dramatic and cool visuals none-the-less
Here's the premise of the story -
In 50 years from now the Sun is dying.It is no longer providing the energy and the light that mankind needs to survive on Earth. The entire global community pools its resources to send a mission into space to deliver a bomb to reignite the part of the Sun that is failing. The story concerns the eight astronauts and scientists who lead this mission. On their journey towards the Sun the crew stumble upon the ship that was sent on the same mission seven years previously, the Icarus I, drifting in space. From this point on things start to go very wrong and it’s about how the crew react under the enormous pressure of their endeavor to save mankind.
