Back in February, Magnet Releasing acquired distribution rights to Europa Report and we now have official release details. Similar to other genre releases from Magnet, Europa Report will be available first on-demand and digital download services on June 27th. A limited theatrical release will then start on August 2nd, and a DVD release should follow later this year.
“A unique blend of documentary, alternative history and science fiction thriller, EUROPA REPORT follows a contemporary mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa to investigate the possible existence of alien life within our solar system. When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa’s icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discoveries that may lie in the Europan ocean. After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crewmember, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel, and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined.”
Europa Report was directed by Sebastián Cordero, and stars Michael Nyqvist, Sharlto Copley, Embeth Davidtz, Daniel Wu, Christian Camargo, Karolina Wydra, and Anamaria Marinca.
