Space Station 76 Trailer - Dark Sci-fi Comedy with Liv Tyler and Patrick Wilson

6 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Comedic actor Josh Plotnick makes his feature directorial debut with the dark comedy Space Station 76, a fantastic looking send up of the 1970s' vision of the future. Co-written by Plotnick with a whole team of writers, this character-driven workplace dramedy is the closest thing we’ll get to Office Space writer-director Mike Judge jumping in a time machine and going back to helm the original Star Trek series. 

The movie has a strong cast in different roles than we’re used to seeing them in. It’s great to see Patrick Wilson and Liv Tyler in a comedy and Matt Bomer outside of television, and it’s just good to see Jerry O’Connell period. The film debuted at SXSW earlier this year to mostly positive reviews, and it will come out later this year.

Review: Space Station 76 (Fantasia Film Festival)

6 August 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Plot: The lives and loves of the crew of Space Station 76, a lonely refueling outpost whose uneventful existence is shaken up by the arrival of a new second-in-command, Jessica (Liv Tyler), who immediately clashes with the station’s commander, the deeply closeted Captain Glenn (Patrick Wilson). Meanwhile, the ship’s mechanic (Matt Bomer) is having problems with his pill-popping wife (Marisa Coughlan). Review: You gotta love seventies sci-fi. Battlestar Galactica (O.G »

See Liv Tyler and Matt Bomer in quirky comedy Space Station 76 trailer

3 August 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Liv Tyler and Matt Bomer are space pioneers with major personal problems in the trailer for Space Station 76.

The quirky dark comedy envisions an alternate history of space travel in the vein of a cheesy 1970s television show, with Patrick Wilson as the troubled captain of an intergalactic ship.

The crew of this space station find themselves more concerned with their fractured interpersonal relationships than with their mission.

Annoying robots make their presence known as well, only seeming to make matters worse.

Jack Plotnick - the actor known for playing the deputy mayor in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and a Red John suspect in The Mentalist - has directed Space Station 76, in addition to working on the screenplay with a team of writers.

The ensemble cast includes Jerry O'Connell, Kali Rocha and Marisa Coughlan. Space Station 76 opens later this year. »

Space Station 76 | 2014 Outfest Los Angeles Lgbt Film Festival Review

23 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Earth Below Us: Plotnick’s Debut a Sweet Space Soap Opera

Those familiar with the comedic genius of Jack Plotnick should be thrilled to see his directorial debut, Space Station 76, based on a stage play he co-wrote. Bearing his particular brand of subversive, offbeat humor, it’s a space set soap opera made as if it were in the 1970’s and meant as an homage to those classic films from the time period that inventively attempted to visually prophesies the space age. Regularly featured in the films of Quentin Dupieux and television series, ‘Reno 911,” Plotnick’s perhaps best known for the sorely underrated spoof, Girls Will Be Girls, so many may be surprised at the sometimes melancholy tone underlying this film’s more capricious moments. More of a space age melodrama reflecting nostalgia for a bygone era of storytelling in its mixture of vintage and modern tone, it’s as sweet, »

New trailer: sci-fi comedy Space Station 76

23 July 2014 1:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Patrick Wilson and Liv Tyler star in the sci-fi comedy, Space Station 76. You can see the new trailer here...

Trailer

Silent Running. Dark Star. Star Wars. Alien. Yes, the 1970s was a classic time for science fiction cinema, and the imagery from those movies continues to inspire filmmakers today. But what if you were to set a comedy in a 1970s version of the future? That's the idea behind Space Station 76, a forthcoming sci-fi comedy starring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler and Matt Bomer.

You can see the influence of John Carpenter's Dark Star right from the opening shot, and Patrick Wilson's performance as the hard-smoking, slightly pompous Captain Glenn has a hint of Ron Burgundy about it. The 70s-kitsch details are spot on, too, complete with beige wall art, wobbly robots and shirts with wide lapels.

Space Station 76 also appears to reach back further in time for its genre references, »

The first trailer has arrived online for sci-fi comedy Space Station 76, in which Patrick Wilson and Liv Tyler star as a pair of crew members living on a ‘70s space station. “Welcome to the future of the past” chuckles the film’s official tagline, and sure enough, this first trailer is brimming over with affectionate nods to the early days of sci-fi. There’s very little given away in terms of plot, but if you’re looking to get a sense of the film’s general tone and sense of humour, this latest trailer does the job very nicely...

22 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Patrick Wilson & Liv Tyler Star in Sci-Fi Spoof 'Space Station 76' Trailer

22 July 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"A female captain?" Say what? The first trailer for a goofy sci-fi 70's spoof called Space Station 76 has debuted thanks to Entertainment Weekly and it's as bad as you would expect for a trailer that debuts on Entertainment Weekly. Despite a solid cast, including Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Marisa Coughlan, Matt Bomer, Jerry O'Connell and Kylie Rogers, the jokes fall flat, the dialogue is atrocious, and this looks more like bargain bin crap than a worthy spoof. Seriously, it looks terrible. But maybe it wasn't made for everyone. Take a look below at a 1970s version of the future, where personalities and asteroids collide. Here's the first official trailer for Jack Plotnick's Space Station 76, from EW.com via The Playlist: In a 1970s-version of the future, a group of people and robots living on a space station face inner turmoil when a new assistant captain arrives, sparking tension. »

Space Station 76 Trailer Shows Patrick Wilson, Matt Bomer and Liv Tyler Living in Deep Space 70s-Style

22 July 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve got an abundance of films set in a futuristic version of space, but what if space travel and deep space living more closely resembled the 70s instead?  That’s exactly what Jack Plotnick’s feature directorial debut is all about.  Rather than run with a single primary narrative, Space Station 76 puts the focus on a number of main characters going about their daily lives on a refueling station called the Omega 76. There’s the bitter captain, Glenn (Patrick Wilson), his new assistant captain, Jessica (Liv Tyler), the space station mechanic, Ted (Matt Bomer), and his wife Misty (Marisa Coughlan) who struts around without a care in the world, often neglecting her own daughter.  You can catch them all in action in the very first Space Station 76 trailer after the jump. This is an unusual one.  I had the chance to see it back at SXSW and »

Watch: Trailer For Sci-Fi Spoof 'Space Station 76' Starring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler And Matt Bomer

22 July 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The genre comedy/spoof is a tricky one to pull off. Hell, just ask Seth MacFarlane, who tried it with "A Million Ways To Die In The West." Needless to say, Jack Plotnick has his work cut out for him with "Space Station 76," but the first trailer reveals something whose ambitions are modest, while keeping a sharp eye on the jokes. Starring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer and Marisa Coughlan, the film is set in a '70s version of what the future would look like, and follows a group of humans and robots, living in a space station, who find things turned upside down the arrival of new Assistant Captain. This is more carefully crafted than you might expect, with some pretty great set and costume design to be found within. And it looks like it's actually funny as well, which is the top priority for a movie like this. »

Video: Patrick Wilson and Liv Tyler revisit the 1970s in 'Space Station 76'

21 July 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Ever wonder what it would be like if Ron Burgundy had gone to space in the 1970s?

That’s the general vibe of the trailer for Space Station 76, which stars Patrick Wilson as the mustachioed, hard-drinking captain of Omega 76, a groovy space station that is turned upside down when the new assistant captain turns out to be a… woman (Liv Tyler).

The film’s vision of the future cleverly samples from B-movies and sci-fi television of that era, and its melodrama, which includes crumbling marriages, affairs, and petty jealousies, may have been cribbed from your favorite classic soap.

Fantasia Film Festival 2014: Derek’s Most Anticipated Movies

15 July 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This will be my third year attending the venerable Fantasia International Film Festival here in Montreal, and this year’s slate does not disappoint. I was asked to pick the five movies I was the most excited to see. This proved to be a difficult task, seeing as how my original list had upwards of thirty titles. But here are the five that have got me the most intrigued.

The Zero Theorem

Directed by Terry Gilliam

USA/UK/Romania/France, 2013

Even though this movie has been finished for a while and already released in certain territories around the world, there’s a sense that a new Terry Gilliam movie is some form of minor miracle. Stories of Gilliam’s distended budgets, lost projects, and squabbles with producers lend the director a kind of bizarre mystique. But by all accounts, this was the easiest time Gilliam had making a movie in a while. »
