Disc News: Saturn 3 Launches In December

In space no one can hear you scream. But did you know that on Saturn 3, nobody can hear your Brooklyn accent? Such was the fate of Harvey Keitel’s trademarked tones when he was launched off Earth. Saturn 3 deserves its cult status simply for bringing together the trio of Keitel (Mean Streets), Kirk Douglas (Spartacus) and Farrah Fawcett (Charlie’s Angels). They get into major trouble on a distant outpost when a robot gets between their human desires. Saturn 3 was conceived by the production designer of Star Wars. The movie is getting the high definition treatment right before Christmas for a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack. Here’s the details from Scream Factory:

Adam (Kirk Douglas) and Alex (Farrah Fawcett) are two scientists stationed deep beneath the barren surface of Saturn’s third moon, Titan. They live together in idyllic isolation in a space-age Eden, seeking new forms of food for an exhausted planet Earth. Their perfect world is interrupted when Benson (Harvey Keitel) arrives as Saturn goes into eclipse and cuts off communication with the rest of the solar system. Aided by his ‘helper robot’ Hector, James reduces life to one single purpose…survival. The robot becomes violently unmanageable. For Adam and Alex, their only hope is to flee, but the homicidal robot stands in their way. Produced and directed by legendary filmmaker Stanley Donen (Singin’ In The Rain, Charade and Seven Brides For Seven Brothers), Saturn 3 is a pulse-pounding study in sci-fi suspense!
