Trivia

While shooting within the primary vessel, Mark Strong (through direct account, as well as confirmed by the sound department) was singularly the conduit for Microwave Auditory Effect, an occurrence which was only first documented among stray personnel working within the vicinity of transponders during WWII.

Goofs

Gaseous nebulae abound in this movie. All there is between Earth and Mars is space, with a background of stars and perhaps an occasional intrusive comet or asteroid. See more »

Quotes

William D. Stanaforth: Our bodies are more space than matter. There's an unfathomable distance between each atom, each particle. What keeps us solid? Why don't we dissolve?

As exciting as watching grass grow...
3 June 2016 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I had great expectations for this movie after seen the trailer, that looked amazing. Well, what a disappointment this film was. Is not that the acting was bad, or the production values. Neither the visual effects, which are OK. It's just that NOTHING happens... at least nothing that can move the spectators to feel, or even THINK something. The whole thing is an exercise on futility, good concepts wasted and pretentious sequences of slow motion stuff trying to be philosophical or something, but just coming out... lame. If you want to see an exciting, deep, or even entertaining sci fi space film, look somewhere else.
