The first trailer for LIFE, a sci-fi thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds, has just been released.
Based on a script penned by Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland) and directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), LIFE follows a group of six astronauts/scientists aboard the International Space Station who retrieve the first known sample of life on Mars. However, what they first believe to be a simple organism turns out to be more intelligent (and dangerous) than they expected.
Fans of eerie sci-fi films thrillers will undoubtedly see some allusions to LIFE‘s cinematic antecedents (Sphere, for instance, comes to mind).
But unlike sci-fi pics that pit man against alien in a battle that man must ultimately win (think Independence Day) , LIFE, is not sold on the notion that man is good. Ergo, maybe the aliens should kill us all (especially if the aliens have been watching election 2016).
