In James Cameron’s box office monster Avatar, audiences saw Sam Worthington sent to the stunning planet of Pandora to partake in a new experiment that put his consciousness into the body of an alien race known as the Na’vi. Now a new Netflix sci-fi thriller will have him becoming an alien in a much more terrifying way.
The Titan proposes a premise we’re all too familiar with by now: Earth is dying and we need to find a new planet to live on. However, in this case, our prospective new residence isn’t a new planet, but instead Jupiter’s moon of Titan. But before we can get there, the astronauts being sent to start a new civilization there need to improve their bodies by forcing genetic evolution. Basically, imagine if Captain America went wrong and resulted in an alien transformation along with superhuman traits. You’ll see what we’re talking about in The Titan trailer that just debuted online. Read More »
