Watch: NSFW Red Band Trailer For 'Moonwalkers' Starring Ron Perlman & Rupert Grint


Man, Hollywood really likes making movies about and or related to Stanley Kubrick. There’s “Color Me Kubrick” with John Malkovich, it feels like every year there’s some Kubrick-related script on the Black List, and this year we have “Moonwalkers” which is about that conspiracy theory that Apollo 11 never actually happened and in reality, Stanley Kubrick, secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the U.S. administration.

Set in swinging sixties London, it focuses on a stubborn CIA agent (Ron Perlman a.k.a. “Hellboy“) who can’t find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with the lousy manager of a seedy rock band (Rupert Grint) to develop the biggest con of all time: staging the moon landing. The film made its world premiere earlier this year at the 2015 SXSW where is was described as a “riotous, high-tempo action-comedy.”

The feature-length directorial debut of commercial filmmaker Antoine Bardou-Jacquet, “Moonwalkers” also stars Robert Sheehan, Stephen Campbell Moore, Jeanne Abraham, and Kerry Shale. The indie is due in theaters January 15, 2016 and you can watch the new red-band trailer for the film below. [poster via Crave]
