Disney and Mars don’t really mix, looking at how no fewer than three blockbuster-sized projects revolving around the red planet have failed catastrophically. Don’t be surprised if the Mouse House doesn’t even mention the fourth rock from the sun again after what happened to the sci-fi adventure. mission to marsanimated disaster Mars needs mothersand the madness of fantasy John Carter.

While the latter has finally embraced cult classic status, the same cannot be said for the former, which has instead been largely lost to the cinematic sands of time. That’s completely fair on one side when mission to mars it was only able to earn $111 million at the box office on a $100 million budget, ensuring that it ended firmly (if somewhat ironically) in the red.

Not only that, but a 24 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and 30 percent user rating don’t paint a picture of an underrated gem, but more of a total disappointment. And yet, mission to mars has begun to re-orbit the realms of relevance at last, with fans on Reddit showing a surprising amount of support for the film.

Directed by Brian De Palma and featuring a solid cast that features Gary Sinise, Don Cheadle, Tim Robbins, Jerry O’Connell and Connie Nielsen in the lead roles, mission to mars focuses on the first manned mission to the titular Outcrop in the distant and unimaginable future of… 2020.

Cheadle’s Luke Graham finds himself stranded with no way to contact Earth, but the subsequent rescue mission discovers that Mars may not be so uninhabited after all. The images are undoubtedly impressive at regular intervals, but to say that mission to mars doesn’t get the appreciation it deserves, maybe it would be a bridge too far.
