You can almost hear the pitch meeting echoing through the Hollywood Hills: "It's like Anchorman, meets 2001: A Space Odyssey." And frankly, that sounds like a damn good way to spend an hour and a half. So let's hope the upcoming movie Space Station 76 lives up to the completely unfounded expectations I've created for it.
Judging by the trailer below, the movie pokes fun at the futurism of the 1970s — complete with space stations, tiny robot servants, glowing white walls, smoking in space, and a decent helping of sex. This is an R-rated comedy, after all, and it will certainly be interesting to see how far they stretch the sex, the swears, and the scatalogical.
The film stars Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, and Jerry O'Connell. The movie premiered at SXSW in March but doesn't appear to have a wide release date yet.
