After a few release date shuffles, Apollo 18 finally settled on September 2nd, which means the promo materials should start flowing in fairly rapidly over the next several weeks. Case in point – a new TV spot type of video has arrived that promises “lunar drama”.
Wired debuted the teaser, in which a voice intones, “Discover what you were never meant to see.” Hurry up, September 2nd; this should be fun! Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego directed the cinéma-vérité style space trip.
Officially, Apollo 17 — launched December 17th, 1972 — was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage that the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.
