Supernova is a movie which I had never heard of until a friend told me about it the other day. Supernova is something all of us need to consume at least once a day to give us some refreshment. It brings happiness, which by itself is a powerful and fundamental drug that helps physical health and general well being. Watching movies on DVD is also great entertainment which all like to consume in leisure time.
The movie itself is a science fiction movie. We are introduced to a future where space travel is possible. The hero of the story, a man named Paulson, is part of a team of scientists who travel to a white planet to carry out research using a space ship called the Hyperion.
Once there, they discover an immense mineral called hypergranular and begins working on an experimental nuclear fusion power plant. Everything goes smoothly except for one complication, as Paulson and his colleagues fail to prevent the planet from being destroyed in a second explosion. The last thing they witness before everything disappears in a flash of light is a huge solar flare. As panic sets in and chaos grips the space ship, Paulson finally decides enough is enough and orders everyone to evacuate to safety. With no way to return, he then gives them all the information he can gather to the only remaining person who could tell him what happened - an online forum which he intends to use for research.
After the evacuation, it's up to the 'nerve baby' to take action and find out what's going on before the world is lost. Although supernova may not be one of Hanks's best roles, Supernova is worth a watch. It's a brilliant film from start to finish and exudes a certain amount of humor amidst a sometimes-hearse storyline. Viewers will undoubtedly grow to love Supernova, even if they don't understand what's going on in the movie (in case you didn't know, the entire plot involves secret US government projects). It's one of those rare films from auteurists that manages to make its intentions clear, - in short, Supernova is a clever film that could appeal to a wider audience than you might expect.
Although some of the stories and characters are a little farcical (most of the lead characters are dead), Supernova is definitely worth a try. For fans of sci-fi, Supernova is an interesting tale with an intriguing plot. One only needs to see the trailers of the movie at YouTube to see how effective it can be when used as a trailer, especially when combined with the super fast streaming format of Netflix. The real draw of Supernova is probably its colorful costumes (complete with a few extra explosions here and there) and the way director Dan Mangan manages to keep the audience laughing throughout the movie. If you like the idea of watching a film about a black hole with a space race in it, then you'll love Super Nova... and the rest of the cast as well.
Mangan also has a penchant for producing films that have wide appeal, and this movie fits right in. In addition to having a cast including Whoopi Goldberg, Jason Statham, and Dule Hill, Supernova features Will Smith as the head of the space agency and Ed Norton as the rogue agent who tries to save the day. Mangan's unique style and the addition of super fast streaming platforms make Supernova a fun watch on various streaming platforms.
