Sony Pictures offers an extended look at sci-fi thriller ‘Life’
In space, no one can hear you science
Sony Pictures released an extended trailer for “Life,” the sci-fi thriller that is releasing later this month. The film follows a team of scientists aboard the International Space Station as their mission of discovery turns to one of primal fear. During the trip the crew finds a rapidly evolving life form, one that may have caused a mass-extinction on Mars. That tiny organism is now aboard the I.S.S and the crew are frantically trying to stay alive.
The film features one of the best-looking scientific teams of all time, including Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare and Olga Dihovichnaya. The sci-fi thriller was directed by Daniel Espinosa, and was produced by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn. This isn’t the first time that Ryan Reynolds and director Daniel Espinosa have worked together, the two also worked on “Safe House” back in 2012. That film also featured Denzel Washington and Robert Patrick in the cast. “Safe House” was also a thriller, it opened at number-two at the box-office. The film was beaten by the romantic hit “The Vow” with Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, and went on to make almost $200M at the global box-office.
Fans of the genre can watch the new trailer below, or on the Sony Pictures YouTube channel. This isn’t the first trailer for the film, but it does offer the most footage released by the studio so far, giving you the best look at the crew and the ship.
This isn’t the only space-thriller fans have to look forward to this year. FOX is releasing “Alien: Covenant” in May, the installment will be directed by Ridley Scott. The screenplay for the new Alien film was written by John Logan and Dante Harper, the film stars Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace.
“Life” will hit theaters on March 24, 2017.
