There’s nothing more terrifying than the idea of being stranded in outer space… except for the idea of being stranded in outer space as you watch the Earth get destroyed.
That’s the concept behind the upcoming sci-fi/horror film 3022, which has just released its first trailer. The film stars Omar Epps and Kate Walsh as two members of a group of astronauts who are on board the space station Pangea. For five years, the group has been stationed between Earth and Europa One, a moon of Jupiter that’s also the site of humanity’s first off-world colony. Now, after so long in outer space, the group has been called to return home due to the mental toll the mission has taken on their respective psyches. But before their ship can reach Earth, they literally watch as their home planet is blown to smithereens. Without knowing why the Earth was destroyed, the astronauts must grapple with trying to answer that question while also figuring out their next move and prevent their minds from breaking down further. With no planet to return to, they are now the last vestiges of humanity, so how long will it take before they all go completely insane and start murdering each other? Judging from the trailer, not long.
3022 comes from director John Suits (Pandemic) and writer Ryan Binaco. It will open in select theaters and On Demand on Nov. 22.
