Check out this awesome new trailer for you to watch from Netflix’s upcoming post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama The Midnight Sky. George Clooney is directing the movie and star in it as well, which is based on the book by Lily Brooks-Dalton.
Clooney plays a scientist who is living in the artic named Augustine who thinks he is one of the last men on earth till he comes across a little girl who is called Iris. Not only does he find himself in a place to take care of the little girl, but he also discovers that a group of astronauts that have been on a long mission is returning home, and Augustine has to try and stop them from coming back because of a mysterious global disaster that has made Earth unlivable.
Clooney is joined by Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo, Tiffany Boone, Demián Bichir and Kyle Chandler, with young Caoilinn Springall in her first major movie role.
Clooney said previously about the movie:
“It’s science fiction, which unfortunately is less fictional as we move through the days. The sickness of hate and the elements that come from that, battles and wars — that has been percolating for quite some time.
“I wanted it to be about redemption in a way. I wanted there to be some hopefulness in a fairly bleak story about the end of mankind.”
The Midnight Sky drops on Netflix on December 23rd.
