Overview
Io, Jupiter's innermost moon, hosts mining colony Con-Am 27, a high-tech hellhole. There Marshal William T. O'Niel (Sean Connery) probes some mysterious deaths amoung the 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 the environments of production designer Phillip Harrison and special-effects wizard John Stears, Academy Award® winner† for his work on Thunderball and Star Wars. The spellbinding result is "a movie of unexpected pleasures" (Vincent Canby, The New York Times).

†Best Special Visual Effects (1965) and Best Visual Effects (1977).
