Most of the news surrounding the upcoming low budget found footage thingy "Apollo 18" has been about it's continually shifting release dates, never a good sign of a quality product.

Well, with a date now firmly locked, The Weinstein Company have unveiled a new trailer for the film and it's basically every found footage horror movie you've ever seen except they're wearing space suits this time. Yawn. Starring some dudes we don't know and directed by the largely unknown Spanish director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego, the movie uses the mythical cancelled Apollo 18 mission -- that conspiracy theorists say still happened in secret -- as a launch pad for this thriller. Again, yawn.

"Apollo 18" lifts off on September 2nd. Trailer below.
