The "Europa Report" a story written by Philip Gelatt ("The Bleeding House"), whose new Sci-Fi thriller involves a crew of international six astronauts embarking on a privately funded three year journey to one of Jupiter's Galilean moons, more specifically Jupiter's fourth moon, Europa. The mission is trying to find extraterrestrial life, by exploring its oceans and confirm these findings of life. However, following a disastrous technical failure and the death of one of the crew, the remaining crew struggle to regain communication with Earth. 

The film stars an international cast  including Sharlto Copley ("Elysium," "District 9"),  Michael Nyqvist, ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" trilogy), Christian Camargo ("Hurt Locker" "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" Parts I & II), Daniel Wu, and Anamaria Marinca. 


Here is the official synopsis of the Europa Report from Magnet Releasing:
"A unique blend of documentary, alternative history and science fiction thriller, EUROPA REPORT follows a contemporary mission to Jupiter's moon Europa to investigate the possible existence of alien life within our solar system. When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa's icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discoveries that may lie in the Europan ocean.

After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crewmember, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel, and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined."

Composing the score for "Europa Report" is Bear McCreary. McCreary is known for his scores on television shows, movies, and video games. McCreary gained major recognition when he took over musical director duties from Richard Gibbs when Scy-Fy's "Battlestar Galactica" went into production. McCreary's score for the famed darkly political television show kept the show unique and the music was very non-cliché. Bear McCreary's other credits include the horror videos "Rest Stop," and "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End," the short lived prequels to BSG, "The Plan," "Caprica," and "Blood and Chrome." McCreary also does the score for AMC's "The Walking Dead," and the cable channel Starz's, "Da Vinci's Demons."
