Popcorn Taxi is proud to announce the very first Melbourne screening of the new sci-fi thriller SUNSHINE, followed by an on stage discussion and audience Q&A with the film's director Danny Boyle (TRAINSPOTTING, SHALLOW GRAVE and 28 DAYS LATER).

Starring Cillian Murphy (28 DAYS LATER, RED EYE), Australia's own Rose Byrne (TWO HANDS), Michelle Yeoh (MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA) and Cliff Curtis (WHALE RIDER), SUNSHINE is a claustrophobic thriller set in the year 2057, where the sun is dying and mankind faces extinction. Earth’s last hope lies with the Icarus II, a spacecraft with a crew of eight men and women. Their mission: to deliver a nuclear device designed to reignite our fading sun. Deep into their voyage, out of radio contact with Earth, the crew hear a distress beacon from the Icarus I, which disappeared on the same mission seven years earlier. A terrible accident throws their mission into jeopardy and soon the crew find themselves fighting not only for their lives, but also for their sanity.

Director Danny Boyle was drawn to both the literal voyage to the Sun as well as its crew’s psychological journey as they head out across the cosmos. "There is the question about what happens to your mind when you meet the creator of all things in the universe, which for some people is a spiritual, religious idea, but for other people it is a purely scientific idea" he explains. Part of Boyle’s process involved having his actors submit to an intensive rehearsal period that included extensive research while they lived together to build up a certain kind of familiarity before shooting.

After the screening Director Danny Boyle will join us live on stage for a discussion about the making of the film, and an audience Q&A session. For more details on the film see below. View the trailer for SUNSHINE on-line HERE.

Popcorn Taxi would like to thank Fox Searchlight Pictures and Hoyts Cinemas for their generous support in making this program possible. SUNSHINE opens in cinemas nationally on April 12th. Visit www.foxsearchlight.com.au for further information on SUNSHINE.
