Astronaut Farmer

Fri Feb 09, 2007 12:14 pm

I saw a trailer for the upcoming release of Astronaut Farmer, starring Billy Bob Thorton. http://theastronautfarmermovie.warnerbros.com/ I was stuck by the similarities to the short lived ABC TV series in the late 70s, 'Salvage 1' , starring Andy Griffith portraying an LA area junk yard owner who builds a space ship to reclaim the leftovers on the moon from the Apollo missions.

While not much of a Billy Bob fan, I usually enjoy these types of plots, so I'll probably check it out.

I saw the same preview....it looks interesting. It's a prototypical fantasy shot...to launch to space from your backyard.....

I'd love it.
Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?
