Now this is interesting.
400 Days, a sci-fi psychological thriller made by SyFy, is actually going to be showing in theaters instead of getting a direct-to-TV release—which leads one to believe this might be worth checking out. The cast is interesting too—we’ve got Arrow‘s Caity Lotz, as well as Superman Returns actor Brandon Routh and… Dane Cook? (I might have double-checked on that one.)
Before you check out the trailer below, here’s a small plot summary that gives a little foretaste of what to expect—and it sounds pretty chilling:
400 Days is a psychological sci-fi film centering on four astronauts who are sent on a simulated mission to a distant planet to test the psychological effects of deep space travel. Locked away for 400 days, the crew’s mental state begins to deteriorate when they lose all communication with the outside world. Forced to exit the ship, they discover that this mission may not have been a simulation after all.
Ooooh. It does sound pretty intriguing, doesn’t it?
The film will be released both in theaters and direct to video/streaming on the same date, which will be January 12, 2016.
If 400 Days does well, it could pave the way for SyFy Films to get future projects promoted to a theater-screening status—and that’s something I’d be interested in seeing… just as long as it isn’t another Sharknado.
