Well, it’s official – even when you’re with Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds, space is scary. Deadly, even, according to the new trailer for Life, which features the leading men on a voyage to find extraterrestrial life with their six person crew. When they finally do discover a single cell organism, however, it turns out to be deadly.
“We’re looking at the first proof of life beyond Earth,” says Ariyon Bakare’s character, gazing fondly at the small creature before being violently murdered by it.
The trailer is intercut with audio from John F. Kennedy’s 1962 “moon speech.”
The film is directed by Daniel Espinonsa (Safe House, Child 44) and was written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. It hits theaters Memorial Day weekend.
Check out the first trailer below.
