The genre comedy/spoof is a tricky one to pull off. Hell, just ask Seth MacFarlane, who tried it with "A Million Ways To Die In The West." Needless to say, Jack Plotnick has his work cut out for him with "Space Station 76," but the first trailer reveals something whose ambitions are modest, while keeping a sharp eye on the jokes.

Space Station 76

The genre comedy/spoof is a tricky one to pull off. Hell, just ask Seth MacFarlane, who tried it with "A Million Ways To Die In The West." Needless to say, Jack Plotnick has his work cut out for him with "Space Station 76," but the first trailer reveals something whose ambitions are modest, while keeping a sharp eye on the jokes.

Starring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer and Marisa Coughlan, the film is set in a '70s version of what the future would look like, and follows a group of humans and robots, living in a space station, who find things turned upside down the arrival of new Assistant Captain. This is more carefully crafted than you might expect, with some pretty great set and costume design to be found within. And it looks like it's actually funny as well, which is the top priority for a movie like this.

No release date yet from Sony, but watch below. [EW]
