Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.
Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes according to plan.
50 years into the future, the Sun begins to die, and Earth is dying as a result. A team of astronauts is sent to revive the Sun - but the mission fails. Seven years later, a new team is sent to finish the mission as mankind's last hope.Written by
In 2018 when promoting his film Annihilation (2018), Alex Garland revealed that the character of Harvey was actually named after Harvey Weinstein, due to his often rude & snappy attitude to the other crew members & arrogant, superiority complex. Danny Boyle thought it'd be funny to pay homage to Weinstein in this way after Harvey had been difficult with the handling of the US release of Trainspotting (1996) & trying to cut out some of the more disturbing scenes.

Critical damage is caused to Icarus II by sunlight reflecting off a communications tower onto the structure. Yet, when Icarus II approaches Icarus I - much closer to the sun - its shield reflects sunlight onto the rear of Icarus I with no ill-effects to that ship at all. See more »
Our sun is dying. Mankind faces extinction. Seven years ago the Icarus project sent a mission to restart the sun but that mission was lost before it reached the star. Sixteen months ago, I, Robert Capa, and a crew of seven left earth frozen in a solar winter. Our payload a stellar bomb with a mass equivalent to Manhattan Island. Our purpose to create a star within a star.
Eight astronauts strapped to the back of a bomb. My bomb. Welcome to the Icarus Two.

Scenes from the film in chronological order are played during the end credits in a small box on the left side of the screen, which moves from the top to the bottom as the credits roll. See more »
I'm not sure what movie the person who left the last comment saw? Sunshine is in fact... wait for it... a movie. Yes that's right, somebody wrote it and it's set in the future. If you can look past nitpicking comments to do with the theoretical UNINVENTED technologies of a film set in the future. You will see a brilliant movie. Danny Boyle's direction is fresh and moving on from his previous films as always. Set and costume design were fantastic, hinting at the Russian sci fi films it's obviously nodding at, but always functional and never drawing attention away from the actors. Performances were always human with no over drawn-out emotion. Thankfully Boyle and Garland didn't try to make more comments on human madness but just put an interesting story in front of us to watch. Images were amazing and the soundtrack beautiful. --- Plus you have to agree those space suits looked so cool. And realistic!
