First Trailer for Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Life’ Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds
Sony Pictures debuted the first official trailer for Life during “The Walking Dead,” and it looks pretty damn good.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, and written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the new sci-fi thriller brings together Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal as they play a couple of astronauts that are part of a team that discovers the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars.
Also starring Rebecca Ferguson, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare and Olga Dihovichnaya, Life opens in U.S. theaters on Friday, May 26 over Memorial Day weekend. Watch the first official trailer.
I just hope it’s not a “body/mind snatcher” movie. For some alternate footage, you can also check out the international trailer below.
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.
