The Astronaut's Wife
Science fiction blends with domestic horror in this thriller. Spencer Armacost (Johnny Depp) is an astronaut on a routine mission in space when something goes horribly wrong and it looks as if he's doomed. However, Spencer is rescued at the last moment and returns to earth a hero. He soon announces that he's retiring from space exploration to spend more time with his wife Jillian (Charlize Theron). Jillian has suffered from depression in the past and would like to start a family, so she's initially thrilled with Spencer's decision. Jillian soon finds herself pregnant, but she starts to notice something odd about her husband, as if the man who returned isn't quite the same person who went away. As her pregnancy advances, Jillian's anxieties increase, but has something really happened to Spencer, or have Jillian's old demons merely resurfaced? The Astronaut's Wife marked the directorial debut of Rand Ravich, who previously penned screenplays for such films as The Maker and Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Can I get my money back?


    This movie is by far one of the worst movies you could ever watch while being robbed of your time. It had a great premise but misfired halfway through. The whole movie builds up to a great ending until you get there and wonder why in the hell you just spent 2 hours watching a movie that is trying to prevent a huge disaster only to have it come to pass anyway. Dont waste your time on this movie, life is to short.This movie is not worth watching once you know that the disater happens in the end anyway. Save your time and life by skipping this one.

    Great sci-fi horror!


    This a great thriller, my wife and I love it! It has a very twisted edge-of-your-seat plot. Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron are fantastic in this film. If you like films of the sci-fi horror genre, then you'll love this movie. I highly recommend it! Also, some other good films that are similar are Fire in the Sky, The Forgotten, and Event Horizon.
