With the announcement that the original film is getting the HD treatment from Olive Films, is has been announced that the currently in production sequel to 1989′s underrated Moontrap, which starred Bruce Campbell and Walter Koenig, is set for release next year.
Moontrap: Target Earth stars Sarah Butler (I Spit on Your Grave), Damon Dayoub, and Charles Shaughnessy in a film directed by Robert Dyke; and sees a 14,000 year old spacecraft discovered at an excavation site. Created by a previously unknown human civilization, it becomes re-activated, taking the film’s heroes to the moon to encounter robotic intelligence standing guard over ancient secrets.

Every day seems to bring a new release celebrating the anniversary of some well known movie from the past. Moontrap may not be that well known, but Olive Films is honoring the Walter Koenig/Bruce Campbell sci-fi horror flick’s 25th anniversary with its first ever DVD/Blu-ray release.
It would probably be fair to call Moontrap an obscure film these days since it has never been released on DVD or Blu-ray (at least in the Us) since its brief theatrical run and video release all the way back in 1989. VHS and gray market DVDs have been the only way to see the movie until now.
