Trailer: The Andromeda Strain (1971)
A group of scientists investigate a deadly new alien virus before it can spread.
The Andromeda Strain is a fantastic 70's sci-fi movie, directed by Robert Wise who brought us 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', 'Run Silent, Run Deep', and 'The Haunting'. It was also the first film to be adapted from a Michael Crichton novel.
Thought I'd keep my editing skills in shape by editing a shiny new trailer for it.
In response to questions about the music, there are two songs used in this trailer, both from the soundtrack to Danny Boyle's 'Sunshine' (2007):
Track 06: Kanada's Death, Pt 1
Track 14: Capa Suits Up via James Malcolm
Synopsis:When virtually all of the residents of Piedmont, New Mexico, are found dead after the return to Earth of a space satellite, the head of the US Air Force's Project Scoop declares an emergency. Many years prior to this incident, a group of eminent scientists led by Dr. Jeremy Stone (Arthur Hill) advocated for the construction of a secure laboratory facility that would serve as a base in the event an alien biological life form was returned to Earth from a space mission. Stone and his team - Drs. Dutton, Leavitt and Hall (David Wayne, Kate Reid, and James Olson, respectively)- go to the facility, known as Wildfire, and try to first isolate the life form while determining why two people from Piedmont (an old wino and a six-month-old baby) survived. The scientists methodically study the alien life form unaware that it has already mutated and presents a far greater danger in the lab, which is equipped with a nuclear self-destruct device should it manage to escape.
