I’ll admit: EW‘s (via ComingSoon) first image from The Europa Report made me think that it was a comedy. There are three solid possibilities behind this assumption: 1. Sharlto Copley simply comes across as funny; 2. The expression on his face also comes across as funny; 3. It instantly reminded me of the VHS cover for RocketMan, which always upset me when I was a kid.
But, as it turns out, The Europa Report is a Sebastián Cordero-directed sci-fi thriller that centers on “a group of astronauts [who] make the arduous journey to Jupiter’s frigid, glacial moon Europa in search of extraterrestrial life.” Things go wrong from there, probably with aliens. Original Dragon Tattoo actor Michael Nyqvist, Anamaria Marinca (4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days) Daniel Wu (The Man with the Iron Fists), Karolina Wydra (Crazy, Stupid, Love), and Christian Camargo (Breaking Dawn) also star.
Along with this scanned image, MovieViral points us in the direction of a viral marketing site for Europa Report that, like most of these things in their early days, is none too comprehensive. Perhaps something fun will come of it in the months leading up to its release, which is expected to occur later this year.
