Trailerama: Mars

A race to Mars between humans and robots should be stuff of James Cameron’s next 3D-ring circus. Instead, it’s filtered through the modern indie sensibility of director Geoff Marslett. So astronaut Mark Duplass (Humpday) instead gets sweet on Zoe Simpson, and the space opera becomes a pop art yak-fest. The animation looks like an attempt to make Waking Life with photocopiers, but this still qualifies as one of the oddest movies of the year. With a cast that includes Kinky Friedman and Giant Sand’s Howe Gelb. Expect Mars to come in for a landing at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.
