Advertisement

Starring Anthony Perkins, Roddy McDowall, Robert Forster, Tom McLoughlin, Ernest Borgnine

Directed by Gary Nelson

Synopsis: A research vessel finds a missing ship, commanded by a mysterious scientist, on the edge of a black hole.

Tagline: A journey that begins where everything ends!

Synopsis: An Earth exploratory ship, the USS Palomino, discovers a black hole with a lost ship, the USS Cygnus, just outside its event horizon. Deciding to solve the mystery of the Cygnus are: the Palomino's Captain, Dan Holland; his First Officer, Lieutenant Charlie Pizer; journalist Harry Booth; scientist and ESP-sensitive Dr. Kate McCrae, whose father was the Cygnus's First Officer; Dr. Alex Durant, the expedition's civilian leader; and the robot known as V.I.N.CENT. The Palomino attempts a dangerous fly-by of the darkened ship. As they come within close range of it, the buffeting they experience (due to the black hole's gravity) suddenly ceases. They bring more instruments to bear on the derelict, but do not even realize the gravity-free zone is artificial; slipping outside it, they are almost drawn into the black hole, an abyss from which no one can escape. Matters worsen when Reinhardt holds the crew captive, after realizing that they can help him reach his goal. The squad must now figure out a way to flee from Reinhardt -- before it's too late.

Tagline: There is an inexorable force in the cosmos, a place where time and space converge. A place beyond man's vision...but not beyond his reach.

Storyline: A research vessel finds a missing ship, commanded by a mysterious scientist, on the edge of a black hole.
