Set in 2048 with Earth on the verge of becoming uninhabitable, The Titan is about mankind's search for a new home. A potential planet has been found, but humans will have to be genetically modified in order to survive in this potential new environment. Directed by Lennart Ruff with a screenplay by Max Hurwitz, the film is captivating because inside the macro themes there's an intimate film. At the heart of the story are Lt. Rick Janssen (Sam Worthington) and Dr. Abigail Janssen (Taylor Schilling). Rick has been chosen to participate in an experiment to genetically enhance the human body to survive Titan's conditions. As an actor, Worthington never really got a fair shake from audiences. Between Terminator Salvation and Avatar, he was anointed as the next big thing and it didn't stick. He's solid here: It's a role predicated on physicality, and Worthington sells it well.
