On this episode of The Sci-Fi Film School, we discuss the 2004 movie Retrograde.

In the not too distant future, a team of genetically unique men and women, lead by John Foster, make a trip back in time in order to prevent the discovery of meteors containing a deadly, off-world bacteria, which has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. Unbeknowst to John, a mutinous officer named Dalton has plans of his own for a new life in the past. Set aboard a ship trapped in the Antarctic, fate and chance forever alter the lives of a group of scientists and polar researchers who encounter John and Dalton. The opposing time travelers soon discover that their return to the present day, sets into motion the terrible things to come.

Retrograde stars Dolph Lundgren, Silvia De Santis, Renee Diaz, Joe Montana, Gary Daniels, Joe Sagal, Andrew Schrader, Ken Samuels, David Jean Thomas, and Jamie Treacher.
