50 Years and 28 Days Later...

Sunshine is the newest movie from director Danny Boyle. The director of the zombie-filled "28 Days Later" and gritty drug induced "Trainspotting". Boyle has a great way of taking characters and making you fall in love with them one moment and hate them the next. You will be screaming at the screen, "No, don't!", "Behind you!", or "AHH, ZOMBIE!". Well, not so much about the zombies, but you get what I am saying.

The sci-fi flick picks up 50 years from present day. The Sun is dying and the only thing we can do to stop it is to throw a bomb into it. God bless America! A team of scientists and astronauts are sent into space to bring life to the sun. The mission fails on flight Icarus1 and a second convoy, Icarus2 is sent to finish the job 7 years later. On the way to the sun the crew encounter a few problems a long the way resulting in repairs on the outside of the shuttle, and basic human nature within the ship. Cillian Murphy also returns in this Sci-fi adventure.

I thought the movie was amazing. From start to finish I couldn't really gauge if this was going to turn out well in the end. Don't worry I won't spoil it for you. Go check it out now while it's still in theaters. It's no Rush Hour 3 so it won't be in theaters long.

The picture to the right was taken from the sunshine website dedicated to documenting everything that went into the movie. Pictures from NASA of the sun like the one here and the struggle the crew had to go through training for the movie.

Go here to watch the trailer and get your mind-blown.
