In space, our wildest nightmares are born and bred. And this time, it's a classic: An extraterrestrial life form is discovered. The crew probably has to kill it and themselves before it infects Earth. (To be honest, just once I want the alien-killer-virus-thing to make it to Earth. Hey, maybe that's the prequel to a zombie movie.)
"Life," stars Ryan Reynolds (yes, Deadpool), Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson ("Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation"), Hiroyuki Sanada ("The Wolverine") and more, and traps our assumed heroes in space with an unknown, potentially fatal alien entity.
With a voice-over of JFK's Rice University speech, the trailer begins by stressing the openness and freedom of space. Ariyon Bakare ("Jupiter Ascending"), whom I assume plays the science officer on this mission, spells out something a bit more ominous, but no less inspiring: "The mission's primary goal has been achieved; we're looking at a large single cell, biological. I'd hate to jump the gun, but I think it's time. We're looking at the first proof of life beyond Earth."
Shortly after his announcement, the cute little life form is, well, eating him.
