A taut, psychological sci-fi film in the style of 2001: A Space Odyssey, the critically acclaimed Moon debuts on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on 16th November 2009, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Marking the directorial debut of Duncan Jones, Moon is a gripping sci-fi thriller which stars Sam Rockwell (Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, Frost/Nixon) and features the voice of two-time Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey (Best Supporting Actor, The Usual Suspects, 1995; Best Actor, American Beauty, 1999).

Blending wonderfully old-school science fiction with incredibly prescient themes, Moon is a blistering experience and Jones' debut marks the arrival of a genuinely exciting new British talent. Also included is Duncan Jones' short sci-fi film Whistle, about a man with a refined skill to predict human behavior who is torn between his work and his family in this melancholy tale about the future of assassination.

Moon has been nominated for four Spike TV Scream Awards, and was the winner of the Michael Powell Award for Best New British Feature Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. It was also included in the official selection at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is nearing the end of his contract with the mining company, Lunar, for whom he has been a faithful employee for three long years. His home has been Sarang, a moon base where he has spent his days alone mining Helium 3, the precious gas that holds the key to solving Earth's energy crisis. Isolated and determined, Sam has followed the rules obediently and his time on the moon has been enlightening but uneventful. He does his job mechanically and spends most of his time dreaming of his imminent return to earth, his wife and young daughter.

Finally he will have someone to talk to beyond "Gerty", the base's well-intentioned, but rather uncomplicated computer. Two weeks shy of his departure from Sarang, Sam starts seeing and hearing things and when a routine extraction goes horribly wrong, he discovers that Lunar has its own plans for replacing him and that the new recruit is eerily familiar. Now Sam has to confront the discovery that the life he has created may not be his own.
