2007 M Contains violence and offensive language.

Dark days are coming.

Fifty years into the future (2057), the Sun is failing, causing the Earth to enter an ice age. A spacecraft, the Icarus II, with a crew of eight men and women is launched as a last hope, carrying a massive stellar bomb with a thermonuclear payload equivalent to the mass of Manhattan in order to re-ignite the Sun.

Seven years prior, a similar ship, the Icarus I, had been launched for the same mission, but contact was lost.

When the crew of eight move toward the sun and out of radio contact with Earth, they discover the distress beacon of Icarus I.

    I think this was an awful movie that was butchered by the director. It started with potential: great visual atmosphere, cool subtle music, mysterious story intro. But ended up being just another "Event... Read more

    Not life-changing, but pretty entertaining, and impressive to look at. Fairly derivative (2001, Alien, etc etc), but it's kind of hard for sci-fi not to be. We were a bit puzzled as to why Cliff Curtis couldn't just keep a NZ accent?

    Great premise, but one wonders where it all went wrong? What about the mechanics that required so much intricacy and manual input to deliver the payload when, given the goal of reigniting the sun, it... Read more
