Moon, directed and co-wrote by Duncan Jones, looks to be the Sci-Fi suspense thriller of the fall.
In Moon, Sam Bell played by Sam Rockwell (Frost/Nixon) is an astronaut working on the moon base SELENE, to harvest a gas used on Earth to help reverse the energy crisis. The mission, which is a three year stint completely isolated from human contact, will allow Bell an early retirement with his family upon his return to Earth. His only companion on this mission is a computer named GERTY, which is voiced by none other than actor Kevin Spacey. With a sort of “Cast Away” vibe, the majority of the films dialog is between Bell and the artificial intelligence GERTY. With Bell closely approaching his return to Earth, he discovers another being on SELENE with him, and begins to feel the strain of his almost three years without human interaction. Stressed, claustrophobic, and starting to imagine things, the calm and obedient Bell begins to questions his mission, GERTY, and himself.
