Did you know that there was secret mission to the moon that happened after Apollo 17? Well, that’s the premise of producer Timur Bekmambetov’s Apollo 18, which speculates that the reason it was secret is because we found (presumably violent) aliens. Yesterday brought us not only the first official teaser poster for the found-footage thriller, but also a potential viral video. See them both after the break.

First of all, I love the premise of this film, and with someone like Bekmambetov (Wanted) on board, you know that no punches will be pulled. The poster exemplifies this perfectly. Now, about that video. It comes from Dread Central, but little other information is known about it. It is not confirmed to be officially affiliated with the film, but as you can tell, it’s creepy as hell. Is that an alien or just a mutilated person? Also, why does it say Apollo 20? We’ll keep tabs and try to find out more.
Apollo 18 will be released in theaters on March 4th, 2011 by The Weinstein Company. Gonzalo López directs the screenplay written by Brian Miller on a reported $5 million budget. No cast has been announced, and no trailer has been released, but you can get more information through the film’s official website, Facebook, and Twitter.
