In Detail

In the not-too-distant future, Earth's dying sun spells the end for humanity. In a last-ditch effort to save the planet, a crew of eight men and women ventures into space with a device that could revive the star.

As the Icarus II races toward its fiery destination, an accident, a grave mistake and a distress beacon from a long-lost spaceship throw the desperate mission into a tailspin. In the face of this, Captain Kaneda (Hiroyuki Sanada) keeps his cool, while the streamlined crew - including Cillian Murphy, Rose Byrne, Michelle Yeoh and Chris Evans - more or less keeps it together. With fluid orchestration of the brisk editing, prowling camerawork and unnerving sound design, this is a remarkable film for how it creates life on a space vehicle and the cosmos around it… and it's worth noting that like ‘2001’, the ‘Star Wars’ films and the ‘Alien’ series, it was made in Britain.

We will be screen another Danny Boyle Cult Film offering - ‘Trainspotting’ - at the end of June.
