After its recent Outfest screening, the full trailer for Space Station 76 has arrived, and it looks like it might be a lot of fun. Out actor Jack Plotnick wrote and directed the movie, which has a great cast including Patrick Wilson, Matt Bomer and Live Tyler.
Described as being set in a 1970s version of the future, Liv Tyler plays a new assistant captain whose arrival causes tension amongst the crew, while Patrick Wilson is the bitter and suicidal captain (who is also bisexual). Bomer meanwhile is a technician with a robotic hand who is married to a manipulative woman, played by Marisa Coughlan. The likes of Jerry O’Connell, Justin Theroux and Matthew Morrison also star.
As you can see from the trailer below, it’s set in a 1970s version of the future.
Plotnick has previously said, “People think that the 1970s were about the discos and the free love, but in the suburbs you were left feeling, ‘Where’s the party?’ So the emotional story is what I felt in the ’70s.
