Dark Star

4th May 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Dir: John Carpenter
USA 1974, 1hr 23mins

About:
In John Carpenter (The Thing) and Alien writer Dan O’Bannon’s comic take on 2001: A Space Odyssey, the deep space cruiser Dark Star is assigned the task of blowing up planets inhabited by undesirable life forms in order to make the universe safe for the human race. The vast distances between worlds give the crew a lot of down time and the boredom is starting to get to everyone until a “smart bomb” that can talk and think on its own fails to detach itself from the ship as planned, giving the crew 24 minutes to cajole it into disarming itself. A low-budget cult classic that takes a smart, cynical look at a future where advanced technologies have lost their lustre.
