Sam Rockwell (Matchstick Men) stars in this thought-provoking science fiction film. After spending three years on the moon as a solitary miner, Sam Bell (Rockwell) is almost ready to return home to his wife and daughter.

Isolated, determined and steadfast, Sam has followed the rulebook obediently and his time on the moon has been enlightening, but uneventful.

The solitude has given him time to reflect on the mistakes of his past and work on his raging temper.

He does his job mechanically, and spends most of his available time dreaming of his imminent return to Earth, to his wife, young daughter and an early retirement.

But 2 weeks shy of his departure from Selene, Sam starts seeing things, hearing things and feeling strange. And when a routine extraction goes horribly wrong, he discovers that Lunar have their own plans for replacing him and the new recruit is eerily familiar.

Moon is the directorial debut of commercial helmer Duncan Jones.

Starring: Sam Rockwell, Matt Berry, Malcolm Stewart, Dominique McElligott, Robin Chalk

Moon is released 17th July
