The film follows a crew of six on a three-year mission to explore Jupiter's moon Europa and search for alien life. With its overall attempt at roughly present-day accuracy, the ship in the film looks like something NASA could unveil tomorrow. The close quarters and stationary on-board cameras add to the tension when the mission starts to go horribly wrong.
Magnet picked up the sic-fi space thriller in February and will release the movie on iTunes June 27 and in theaters August 2. The painstakingly realistic "Europa Report" stars Sharlto Copley of "District 9."
