NASA Gets Their Panties In A Wad Over Apollo 18

| Filed under: Film FlickersWacky, Tacky & True

Kind of like when the Church huffed and puffed over The Da Vinci Code, NASA wants the public to know the film Apollo 18 holds no ground in truth.

The film, which perpetuates the thought of government conspiracy and extraterrestrial nightmares, claims to hold footage leaked to the media revealing what really happened in 1972.

Apollo 18's trailer (watch above) reads:

In 1972, the United States sent two astronauts on a secret mission to the moon. Despite decades of denial by NASA and the Department of Defense, classified footage of the mission was leaked to the media.

But NASA's liaison for media, Bert Ulrich, sounds off:

Apollo 18 is not a documentary,. The film is a work of fiction, and we always knew that. We were minimally involved with this picture. We never even saw a rough cut. The idea of portraying the Apollo 18 mission as authentic is simply a marketing ploy. Perhaps a bit of a Blair Witch Project strategy to generate hype.

Okay, clearly the film isn't real, but films like these do raise certain questions.

Hmm, what do U think guys?

    What do I think? I think it'll be a fun, make-believe horror movie that happens to be set in space.

    These films raise questions?

    Are you kidding?

    1) Thr Nasa doen't have its panties in a was (please read what they wrote)
    2) everone knows it pure fiction… except you, it seems,

    Bert Ulrich hit the nail on the head: The Blair Witch Project goes to the Moon. Looks like a snooze.

    Well if people go into this thinking that its portraying real events, they seriously need a slap.

    "films like these do raise certain questions." Yea. Like what kind of a complete moron a) thinks the fictional tale is true and b) thinks that these "films raise certain questions."

    "Okay, clearly the film isn't real, but films like these do raise certain questions."

    The only question that comes to mind is, what kind of pea brain would think this movie is for real?

    Films like what? Everyone but you, Mario, knew this was fiction. You're the reason people have to release statements like this one that state the obvious.

    I would think the movie producers did a "disclaimer" saying the movie was fiction. We all know what happened when someone decided to talk about aliens invading Earth on an American radio drama back in the late 30s. So who knows what people would think now? We humans haven't really evolved that much distinguishing between fact and fiction. Plus we all know the USA government hides stuff they did that wasn't quite right, so I wouldn't put it past NASA (to be pissed off about this movie. ;)

    There IS something on the moon ;)



  12. 12

    "Raises certain questions"??? You mean like, "let's see how many moron's like Perez there are in the world who believe anything they see"? You're such a dipshit.

    "In 1972, the United States sent two astronauts on a secret mission to the moon…" Okay anyone who knows their NASA moon history knows there were always THREE astronauts sent to the moon. Maybe only two went to the surface, while one had to remain in the command module, but the tag line sounds like they have their facts wrong. And if this is supposed to be a 'factual' film to suspend our disbelief, then they've screwed up already.

    The script has perhaps been put together using urban legend internet scuttlebutt.

    Thank you NASA for clarifying that for me…whew, I was really worried about moon monsters coming for me.



  16. 16

    I think NASA has more important things to worry about right now. Like working on their Muslim relations so they can feel good about their science. Wasn't that your most important issue? I'm so over NASA.



  17. 17

    Why did NASA even bother releasing a statement? The only people who will think Apollo 18 holds any truth are the hardcore, crazy ass conspiracy theorists with a basement full of "classified" pictures and documents they printed off the Internet and think are 100% true. Thankfully, not many people like that exist in the world. I think NASA is overestimating the amount of people like them who exist in the world.
