It's the final 19 hours of the first manned mission to Mars in search of signs of life, one that has lasted months without any major discoveries. The crew is tired and discouraged and bickering among themselves as they wrap up and prepare to go home. But when one crew member delays returning to the ship so he can collect a sample of an amazing discovery he has made—fossilized evidence of bacterial life–it soon leads to disaster, jeopardizing the mission and the lives of all the crew. As the casualty rate rises they begin to suspect that the life-form they have discovered is not yet dead. Liev Schreiber leads a strong cast that includes Romola Garai, Elias Koteas, Olivia Williams and Tom Cullen. Imaginatively and spectacularly staged (with the Jordanian desert standing in for the Red Planet), this science fiction thriller is action-packed and visually stunning. Directed by Ruairi Robinson.
