A new trailer for the movie Life has been released by Sony. This film has a very impressive cast with Jake Gyllenhaal leading an ensemble that includes Rebecca Ferguson, Hiroyuki Sanada, Olga Dihovichnaya, Ariyon Bakare, and Ryan Reynolds. Going by this trailer it really does seem to be a mix of Alien and The Thing with a sprinkle of Event Horizon – as much as this is a incredible cast I don’t think this film will be able to move away from them comparisons. Even the below poster looks very similar to the style of Alien. Hopefully I’m wrong and it won’t ended up be another disappointed horror space thriller with a underused cast.
Here’s the official synopsis for Life:
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.
