Indie romance in space! Check out 'Mars' starring Cynthia Watros from 'Lost'

Posted on

It’s Libby from Lost as you (and Hurley) have never seen her before – animated!!!

Cynthia Watros stars alongside musician/actor Kinky Friedman (he plays the President) in new indie film Mars, which premieres this weekend at SXSW. Mark Duplass (Humpday, The Puffy Chair) plays an astronaut who goes on the first manned mission to Mars, looking for “life and love.”

The whole project is the brainchild of Austin, Texas-based animator Geoff Marslett, who has said he wanted the film to look like a cross between A Scanner Darkly and Sin City. But he also notes the film is more like an indie romantic comedy set in space.

The animation looks super-cool, right? And for added coolness, the soundtrack features Giant Sand’s Howe Gelb, Neko Case, Victoria Williams, Kristen Hersh and others.

EW.com has an exclusive clip from the film:

 

 

 

Did you, as one character says, pee yourself?
