“This is some re-animator stuff.”
It’s impossible to watch the trailers and TV spots for Life and not compare it to Ridley Scott’s Alien, a film it sure seems to owe a great debt to. Centered on a space crew that encounters life on Mars, Daniel Espinosa’s sci-fi thriller hits theaters on March 24th, and ahead of the release Sony has uploaded a new vignette video that features insights from smart science dudes.
Nothing special, but worth sharing for those looking forward to this one.
Jake Gyllenhaal stars alongside Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare, and Olga Dihovichnaya.
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.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland) wrote the script.
