Europa Report (2013)

Director: Sebastián Cordero. Cast: Embeth Davidtz, Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist. 90 min. Rated PG-13. Horror/Sci-Fi/Thriller.

The first manned mission to find life on Europa, one of Jupiter's moons, ends in disaster ... because there's something lurking under the moon's ice. Told in the by-now-old "found footage" format, the movie's spacewalks might have had a better chance at impressing if they hadn't already been overshadowed by one of the year's greatest films. Amazing how the Alien style of storytelling (down to the last detail of a female being a final survivor - and I'm not spoiling anything by mentioning that) still influences films more than 30 years later.
