Io, Jupiter’s innermost moon, hosts mining colony Con-Am 27, a high-tech hellhole. There a veteran marshal (Sean Connery) probes some mysterious deaths of miners. In pursuit of the truth, he’s alone. In Outland, writer/director Peter Hyams (Timecop, 2010) depicts a chilling extension of today’s corporation-driven world. Dehumanization is vividly evoked in Philip Harrison’s striking production design and two-time Academy Award winner John Stears’ special effects.
