Looks good. I just can't figure out if that is a documentary, dvd, movie, or something like an IMAX movie.

If this is the same movie I saw mentioned on NASA Watch.com last year - it's a Robert Zubrin vanity project.
http://www.ocule.com/show.cfm?action=detail&show_id=12

"THE MARS UNDERGROUND is a landmark documentary about renowned aerospace scientist and visionary, Dr. Robert Zubrin, and his struggle to get the first human mission to Mars off the ground.

Shot entirely in breathtaking High Definition (HD) and directed by accomplished documentarian, Scott J. Gill (Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy, The Blood Earth), THE MARS UNDERGROUND brings to life Dr. Zubrinís vision, known as "Mars Direct", through startling 3-D CGI animation of the launch, voyage and landing of spacecraft, as well as glimpses into the future of manís reign on Mars.

Through Dr. Zubrinís compelling words, moody cinematic visuals and lush original score, THE MARS UNDERGROUND is a surreal journey from the glory of the 1960ís Space Race, the decline of NASA in the 1980ís and 1990ís, through the faltering moon and Mars programs of today, and into one manís quest to propel humanity towards a new world.

THE MARS UNDERGROUND imagines the ďterraformingĒ of Mars, venturing forward in time to show the planet transformed into a viable world of oceans, a sustainable atmosphere and, ultimately, life. With the zeal of a wild-eyed genius, Dr. Zubrin also predicts how humans on Mars would look, sound and feel for generations to come and the children eventually born there Ė the first true Martians.

But in THE MARS UNDERGROUND there are vocal dissenters, inside NASA and elsewhere, questioning Dr. Zubrinís conclusions and the true feasibility of such an ambitious undertaking. "Mars Direct", they say, could be revolutionary in its consequences, or it could be an unrealistic, highly detailed fantasy. Too many dangers. Too many unknowns. His mission blueprint, they say, will never leave the drawing board.

THE MARS UNDERGROUND is the incredible true tale of one scientist fighting impossible odds to change the direction of the space program, turn science fiction into science fact and lead human beings into the next great frontier."

Dr ZUBRIN is an amazing engineer and has spoken before US Congress last year ... Anyway, worldwide, many Mars-enthusiasts are looking forward for the release of this Documentary but the producer and director directly are striving for an international Discovery channel release BEFORE it can be sold by known retailers such as Amazon.com
( However on Amazon You'll find the soundtrack CD already )
