Movie Preview: "Sunshine"

Ok, who ate my fruit cocktail?

Anything that Danny Boyle touches, even if it's crap, turns into gold. After his critically acclaimed children's morality tale Millions, the much revered and director of such critical hits as Transpotting and 28 Days Later, and one of my personal all time favorites, The Beach, he follows up with a promising sci-fi thriller called Sunshine. Boasting a great story premise and an incredibly diverse cast (which includes Boyle pal Cillian Murphy of 28 Days Later ,Chris Evans of Fantastic Four, Michelle Yeoh, Hiroyuki Sanada of The Ring and The Last Samurai and Cliff Curtis of Whale Rider). Imagine Chris Evans and Hiroyuki Sanada in the same movie!

Lets see you dodge my karate kick, prettyboy.

Synopsis: Fifty years from now, the sun is dying, and mankind is dying with it. Our last hope: a spaceship and a crew of eight men and women. They carry a device which will breathe new life into the star. But deep into their voyage, out of radio contact with Earth, their mission is starting to unravel. There is an accident, a fatal mistake, and a distress beacon from a spaceship that disappeared seven years earlier. Soon the crew is fighting not only for their lives, but their sanity.

Props to Twitch.
