Ivan Engler is keeping his upcoming sci-fi thriller, Cargo, under tight guard these days. In fact, the Swiss director only agreed to letting us look at a couple of stills last time we heard from him. But now we have 3 new stills, one of which you can see to the right. Check out the other ones of people carrying some "cargo" through the huge spaceship, it looks incredible! Between this and Christian Alvart's upcoming Pandorum, scifi / horror fans have a lot to look forward to in 2009.

Since the biosphere collapsed on Earth most of humanity lives in space, inhabiting hopelessly overcrowded space stations. The only hope to escape from the chaos is RHER: A paradise-planet 5 light-years from Earth.

The story of CARGO takes place on rusty space-freighter KASSANDRA on its way to Station 42. The young medic LAURA is the only one awake on board while the rest of the crew lies frozen in hibernation sleep. Only in 4 months will Laura's shift be over. During her daily patrols, through the eerily empty ship, LAURA begins to get the feeling that she is not alone on-board. A discovery mission in the dark and ice-cold cargo hold ends in catastrophe. The remainder of the crew is awakened. A cat and mouse game begins in which nothing is what it seems. What lies hidden in the strange freight containers and who, or what, is also on-board?

NOTE: We initially had some footage here but were asked by the director to remove it, but rest assured folks, we'll have some authorized footage soon and this thing looks incredible.

Stills after the break.
