Outland (1981)


Plot: In this film, patterned on High Noon (1952), a marshal on Jupiter's moon, Io, is assigned to a remote mining colony and discovers the illegal selling on amphetamines. He refuses to look the other way when miners begin dying from a drug, which increases their productivity, . The marshal finds few allies in the corporate-controlled colony when assassins are sent to take him out.

Alternative Plot: Thriller about an honest marshal in a corrupt mining colony on Io, Jupiter's sunless third moon, who is determined to confront a violent drug ring even though it may cost him his life. After his wife angrily deserts him, he waits alone for the arrival of killers hired by the company to eliminate him. Futuristic remake of "High Noon".
