Space Truckers (1996)

“…This year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of Space Truckers, though you perhaps wouldn’t know it. Stuart Gordon’s 1996 comic sci-fi adventure starring Dennis Hopper, Stephen Dorff, Debi Mazar and Charles Dance suffered the ignominy of gaining a straight-to-cable release in its native USA, making its debut on HBO that year instead. I don’t think it fared much better here in the UK either, as I feel sure I saw it around 1996 or ’97 on Sky Movies. But today, I’m here to commemorate the anniversary of a film so 1996 that it ends with one-hit-wonder/infernal techno hoe down earworm Cotton Eye Joe playing over the closing credits…”
