Netflix has released the trailer for “The Midnight Sky” starring George Clooney, Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler, Demián Bichir & Tiffany Boone. The film is set to be released December 23rd 2020.
Click below to see the trailer.
Plot Synopsis: This post-apocalyptic tale follows Augustine (George Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to a mysterious global catastrophe. Clooney directs the adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s acclaimed novel ‘Good Morning, Midnight’, co-starring David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler, Demián Bichir and Tiffany Boone.
What do you all think of the trailer? Clooney has had directorial triumphs (“Good Night, and Good Luck” & “The Ides of March”) in the past, but his last two releases have failed to connect with audiences. “The Midnight Sky” looks like it could be the comeback we have been waiting for, especially given its similarity to sci-fi blockbusters like “Interstellar” & “Gravity.” Cinematography and Visual Effects are lacking in Oscar contenders this year and this film looks like it could certainly fill up those slots if well received.
