I saw Rocky on thursday night and saw a trailer for something called Sunshine. http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox_searchlight/sunshine/trailera/

The concept on it's own doesn't sound so flash but the trailer's just so damn cool...

Yeah I'm really looking forward to Sunshine. I love sci-fi movies, and I love Rose Byrne even more ;)

Rose Byrne is like the sun.... REALLY HOT, so hot that it burns yours eyes to look at her for too long!

Looking forward to this one, Danny Boyle directs some really good films (28 Days Later, Trainspotting, The Beach).

In closing....

Finally saw it. Pretty visually awesome but it started to lose me towards the end.

And Rose Byrne... *drool*

yea, awesome idea for a film, shame it lost it at the end and really never developed anything differnt.

Reminded me of event horizon, which is a mistake for any film maker, because that film pretty much defined the genre.

Worth a watch, but maybe save it for dvd release.

It reminded me more of 2001 than Event Horizon but come to think of it, there were heaps of parallels between the two, particularly regarding the ending.

But I'd say it's definately worth seeing. I may even be tempted into a second viewing if I get bored with enough of my uni lectures. It made me go "hmmmm" which is pretty much what I'm after when I go to see a movie.

Saw this tonight. Highly enjoyable. I didn't realise the Japanese guy from The Last Samurai could speak such good English, that was cool. It was obviously a Japanese/American combined mission (given the Japanese writing on the space suits), which makes me wonder if Michelle Yeoh's character was meant to be Japanese...

Mind you, you'd think that by 2050, China would have become fairly powerful.

Mind you again, if the world's been busy freezing over, who knows who'd be powerful or not!

Anyone else think it was an Evangelion reference when the spacesuits were labeled "Eva 1" and "Eva 2"?

Hahaha, no man. EVA stands for "Extra-Vehicular Activity". All space suits intended for use outside of a spaceship are generally called EVA suits. :)
