Got a couple new updates coming at you for Danny Boyle's Sunshine. A few new international trailers have appeared online along with some of the film's first reviews.
Sunshine Trailers & Reviews
The good people over AICN have gotten their hands on some early reviews for Sunshine that are mixed. One reviewer compares the film to 2001 while the other admits that he/she might have taken the film a bit too seriously.
Essentially the plot is that the sun is slowly dying and a group of scientists are on a mission to reverse this by ‘kick starting’ the sun. The film knowingly references many sci-fi films from the serious and reflective, 2001 and Aliens, to the more popcorn, Event Horizon. To give you an early idea of how much I enjoyed it I’d place it much closer to the first two films mentioned than the latter. In fact some of the scenes almost feel like updated versions of Kubrick’s film (watch out for the monoliths at the end!) As their ship (the Icarus II) gets closer to the sun they encounter Icarus I, from an earlier, failed attempt. As soon as they decide to change course and investigate things start to go wrong.
To get a better notion of what these reviewers might have saw, we also have three new international trailers for Sunshine available below:
