Where the Power Armor? Sharlto Copley Heads to Space in Europa Teasers

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | November 13, 2012 | Comments ()


Ah the moons of Jupiter, glimpsed by Galileo, dreamed of by about every other sci-fi author for the last century. Plus Sean Connery reenacted High Noon there, though sadly he didn't wear his outfit from Zardoz.

Now Sharlto Copley of District 9 fame (The A-Team didn't happen, we're agreed on that, right?) is headed to Europa in a new sci-fi film called The Europa Report. Here's the teaser, which does little to tease unless you're really into realistic slow motion space landings. Rule 34 may apply here.

There's also the world's worst viral video. It's fifteen minutes long. And by the time I started skipping forward, nothing happened. And nothing happened at point I skipped to and started watching. What I'm saying is that they may need some lessons on what "viral" means. It means something that has a quality such that someone passes it on like a virus.

I heard "Sharlto Copley" and "science fiction" and immediately went to a happy place of aliens, and spacecraft, and power armor. That may be a personal failing. But Wikus, we'll always have that time we stalked Charlize Theron:

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Shane

    The A Team DID happen, and was awesome.

  • googergieger

    Still think I will forever hate Copley because of his involvement in the Oldboy remake and his interviews regarding said remake.

  • Groundloop

    I remain intrigued about this, if only because of the people involved. That, and I'm a science and sci-fi geek.

    I didn't bother with the viral video, but based on your description I'm wondering if they decided to go meta with it. You know, "Lets make a viral video so awful people will want to watch it just to see how bad it is! Like that Rebecca Black video! She blew up big time!"

  • Yes, but will there be catfood?
