In the forthcoming sci-fi thriller “Life”, one of the most glorious discoveries in the history of mankind quickly turns into a gruesome nightmare for the crew at the International Space Station (ISS). Death, destruction, and chaos follow as all six astronauts aboard are forced to fight for their lives.
In the movie, the astronauts study a sample collected from Mars in the hope to find the first evidence supporting the existence of life beyond Earth. Following a thorough investigation, they conclude that sample indeed contains a rather large but single-celled organism.
As with the plots of most movies in the horror and thriller genres go, the alien initially appears calm and harmless — so much so that even the crew starts thinking it’s kind of cute (at least, that’s what we could infer from the trailer below). However, when one of the astronauts puts his hand inside the containment glove box housing the tiny alien, it starts wiggling as though a tickling match was on. Unfortunately, the cuteness that seemed to have made the crew somewhat reckless didn’t last long. The “thing” first attacked its handler, and then the rest of the crew.
The first trailer of Life was released last week. The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, and Ryan Reynolds as three of the unfortunate astronauts in the movie. The movie will hit the theaters on May 29, 2017 (Monday).
