Life Movie Trailer

"We're looking at the first proof of life beyond Earth." Sony has unveiled a trailer for a new sci-fi thriller titled Life, about a discovery on the space station that goes awry. This movie kind of came out of nowhere, I didn't know they were even making this, and it has one helluva cast. Jake Gyllenhaal stars along with Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare, and Olga Dihovichnaya. They play a crew on the space station who discover a life form on a rogue satellite, but when they take a closer look not all is as it seems. Yes this definitely looks like Gravity meets The Thing, but I'm still curious to check it out. The big twist halfway in seems crazy fun, and I'm always down for more cool space movies.

Here's the first trailer (+ international version) for Daniel Espinosa's Life, direct from Sony's YouTube:

Life Poster Teaser

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. Life is directed by up-and-coming Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa, of the films Easy Money (originally Snabba Cash), Safe House and Child 44 previously. The screenplay is by writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Zombieland, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Deadpool). Sony will release Life in theaters starting on May 26th, 2017 next summer. First impression?

Please do not tell me that yet another dumb scientist used this bare hand to pet a new unknown alien life form.. No way, I cant do this again !!!!!!!!!

He didn't, it was a glovebox.

Efterklang on Oct 31, 2016


Come on now, I was making a joke !!

Tester on Nov 1, 2016


I was going to say the same thing... scientist touches alien life form capable of living in space. Don't think that glove is going to protect you. Pets it anyway.

I hadn't heard of this one, looks decent.

Efterklang on Oct 31, 2016


Feels almost like this could be a "The Thing" origins movie. Not sure how I feel on it though based on this trailer, came across like one of those cheesy horror/dramas were you can guess what's going to happen. I'll wait till I see more before I decide on this one.

Did the studio need to fill their "generic space horror" quota or something?

TheOct8pus on Oct 31, 2016


I think that's the brief they gave the soundtrack guy.

Its weird seeing Jake Gyllenhaal in space with Ryan reynolds lol & for some reason it just looks....okay. I think.

Jorrell Mcdaniel on Oct 31, 2016


Doesn't look awful, but I wouldn't say I'm excited.

Sanada is in so much bad sci-fi recently.

DAVIDPD on Oct 31, 2016


The space station shots were really nice. It's a shame real space is so boring.

Carpola on Oct 31, 2016


Count me in. I love the vibe and the cast.

tarek on Oct 31, 2016


Do you have an imposter? I saw a different tarek account (with the same picture) on another movie site who posted "waste of a good cast" on an article about this trailer. First I thought it was the same account, which would've been weird.

Efterklang on Nov 1, 2016


This is "Bob", the crazy guy who posts comments under many alias. He is still posting here under the alias of Cyranose. Alex banned him many times, but he is still coming back. Just check his profile and you will easily see that he is an imposter. He created his profile with my name and avatar photo a couple months ago, when I kicked his @ss here, on this forum. He was being very impolite and rude with other people.

tarek on Nov 1, 2016


I see, I will never understand people like that..

Efterklang on Nov 1, 2016


Who are you referring to? "Bo" or someone else?

Alex Billington on Nov 1, 2016


Bo is a well educated and polite grown man. I am talking about a certain "Bob" who used many other alias ( Dobb, ScotchLuv, And now Cyranose). You banned him many times, but he keeps coming back like a bad influenza. His mental health is to worry about. He created an account with my name and used the same avatar picture as mine to ruin my reputation on other sites. Bo reported this to me before. And now Efterklang said the same thing. Maybe he is seeking love but doesn't know how to ask for it.

tarek on Nov 1, 2016


Ah! Okay good. Didn't know he was back? What's his current handle? Do I have to bring down the ban hammer again?

Alex Billington on Nov 1, 2016


It's cyranose. But he seems okay on this blog. He didn't behave badly lately. So you can drop off the hammer. For now...

tarek on Nov 1, 2016


It's CyraNose. But he seems in control so far. Few minor incidents but nothing dramatic. You can drop off the hammer for now. ;D

tarek on Nov 1, 2016


Jake G. and Ryan Reynolds?!? Hahaha!!! NO THANK YOU!! hahahaha!!

CyraNOSE on Oct 31, 2016


You aren't into two relatively good actors?

Xerxexx on Oct 31, 2016


I'm in.

Xerxexx on Oct 31, 2016


Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Hiroyuki Sanada, space. I'm down. At first, I kept thinking of the movie Sunshine, even though these movies are mostly different. Then I realized it's cause of Sanada, who was in Sunshine.

Lar Rackell on Oct 31, 2016


Those bad alien lifeforms will have to beat Jake and Ryan. I think that those forms will stand no chance... Which will be fun to watch ...

shiboleth on Oct 31, 2016


started to watch one night but got bored right away....ANOTHER SPACE MOVIE????? really???? but after reading more here, i might give it a second chance. Hopefully Jake comes up with a better one this time, seriously what was up with Nocturnal Animals.....weird and gross and dark.....

Victoria Pennington on Apr 15, 2017


Im sorry, but when the reviewer says 'The big twist halfway in seems crazy fun' it makes me want to skip it...
