In theaters Memorial Day 2017 will come an eerie, realistic sci-fi thriller called Life.
Columbia Pictures and Skydance have recently released a trailer for the film, which stars The Girl on the Train’s Rebecca Ferguson and actors Ryan Reynolds (Definitely, Maybe) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko).
A voiceover weaves throughout the trailer of President John F. Kennedy’s historic speech at Rice University in mid-September of 1962 in which he addressed space travel: “We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win.”
The film focuses on a small crew of six members who head out into the galaxy and discover some chilling evidence of life in outer space.
The official description is as follows:
“Life tells the story of the six-member crew of the International Space Station that is on the cutting edge of one of the most important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As the crew begins to conduct research, their methods end up having unintended consequences and the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.”
The film is directed by Daniel Espinosa and was written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, who reunite on Life after working together on past blockbuster successes such as Zombieland and Deadpool.
Life is in theaters May 26, 2017.
