The second trailer for Christian Alvart‘s upcoming sci-fi thriller Pandorum has been released today via our friends at Screenrant, as well as a few other sites around the web. The trailer comes with a chance to win a trip to Comic-Con, courtesy of Overture Films. But I will leave you to find that out on your own over at Screenrant.

We do have this trailer to check out however, and from where I’m sitting it looks pretty interesting. Very claustrophobic, very frantic — a cool mix of Quarantine and Danny Boyle’s Sunshine, but with a greater lean toward the virally infected horror situation. Also, it stars the incomparable Ben Foster, hopefully bringing the creepy as he’s done so many times before. The trailer shows a lot of grit and its punk vagabonds are very Doomsday-esque, but I’m still in wait-and-see mode. The story exposed in this second trailer seems less interesting to me for some reason, significantly formulaic if you will. Hopefully the execution is solid and the film turns out to be a surprise winner, despite the involvement of Paul W.S. Anderson.

Also, a side note observation by our own Rob Hunter earlier today: is it him, or does it appear as if Dennis Quaid‘s scenes were all shot independent of the rest of the cast? Please ruminate on that and get back to us.

Pandorum hits theaters on September 4, 2009. Check out the second full trailer below.
