Red Planet script
Red Planet (2000)
Synopsis: Mission Commander Kate Bowman is the pilot and commander of the most important mission of the 21st century: saving the human race. It's 2050, earth is dying, and colonizing Mars is the only alternative to obliteration. Bowman and her crew have made this journey to investigate what went wrong with the malfunctioning Mars Terraforming Project, and to repair it. But what happens when they get there is far more terrifying than anyone could have guessed.

EXT. REAR OF THE WAGON

As LOUIS CREED brings it to a stop we get a good look at the

license plate (Illinois) and a bumper sticker (HAVE YOU HUGGED

YOUR M.D. TODAY?)

The ENGINE SOUND stops. For a moment or two we hear only the ree-

ree-ree-ree of crickets. Then:

ELLIE CREED (voice)

Is this our new house, daddy?

LOUIS CREED (voice)

This is it.

EXT. THE WAGON, A NEW ANGLE

The two front doors and one back door open. LOUIS CREED, about 32,

gets out from the driver's side. RACHEL CREED, his wife, gets out

from the passenger side. From the rear door comes ELLIE CREED, a

girl of 6. They are staring, fascinated, at the house.

They come together, the three of them, by the front of the wagon,

still staring at the house. LOUIS is clearly nervous.

LOUIS:

So...what do you think?

RACHEL begins to smile. She turns to LOUIS and hugs him.

RACHEL:

It's gorgeous!

ELLIE:

Am I really gonna have my own room?

LOUIS:

Yes.

ELLIE:

Yaay!

She looks toward the side lawn and sees a tire on a rope hanging

down from the bough of a tree.

ELLIE (to RACHEL)

Is that a swing?

RACHEL:

Yes, but the rope might be--

ELLIE:

Yaay!

She goes running toward it. RACHEL gives LOUIS a tired smile.

LOUIS:

Let her go. It's cool.

RACHEL:

Louis, the house is beautiful.

They kiss--gently at first, then more passionately. As he draws

her more tightly against him, a baby--GAGE--begins to cry from the

car. LOUIS and RACHEL break the clinch.

RACHEL:

The Master of Disaster awakes.

This SOUND is joined by the unhappy yowling of a pent-up tomcat.

LOUIS:

And Buckaroo Banzai.

RACHEL:

Come on--let's parole 'em.

They walk to the car, RACHEL going to one of the back seat doors,

LOUIS to the rear of the wagon.
