Initially scheduled in April, with a teaser trailer in february, the release date was postponed to September and a theatrical trailer appeared on June, 24.

The plot begins from the idea that there was a secret lunar mission that never returned.
Apollo 18 mission was launched in 1974. It followed after the 1972 Apollo 17 the mission that supposedly never went back to Earth.

The film speculates about the cause(s) the United States never started another expedition to the moon. It insinuates a government coverup of the mission of the findings that the crew has been atacked by parasitic lifeforms on the moon.

Apollo 18 Web site: “There is a reason we have never gone back to the moon”

The US government and NASA state that Apollo 17 was the last manned mission and denie the existence of the Apollo 18 mission.
The Apollo program started in 1961 and on July 20th, 1969 Apollo 11 commander Neil Alden Armstrong walked on the moon. Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr followed him shortly after.  Michael Collins remained on the orbit.

According to NASA “Six of the missions — Apollos 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17 — went on to land on the moon, studying soil mechanics, meteoroids, seismic, heat flow, lunar ranging, magnetic fields and solar wind.”

The last man who left the moon was (till now) Eugene Cernan. He was the commander of Apollo 17, the eleventh and final manned mission.
There were suppositions that in fact the mankind never stepped on the moon. Films were made and books were written about this subject.

It’s weird though that after 50 years the humankind made so little progress regarding the space exploration.
The Apollo 18 will try to answer this question in an artistic way on September, 2nd.[googlead tip=”lista_mare” aliniat=”stanga”]
