For his next project, George Clooney is directing and co-starring in an adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s novel Good Morning, Midnight. Re-titled The Midnight Sky, the first trailer has arrived and the dystopian science fiction film looks like a mix of previous direct-to-Netflix projects The Cloverfield Paradox and IO, both mid-level sci-fi you probably wouldn’t want to pay to see in the theater. Are audiences ready for another dreary take on Earth’s future?
This post-apocalyptic tale follows Augustine (Clooney), a scientist in the Arctic who races to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to Earth, where a mysterious global catastrophe has taken out much of the planet. The movie co-stars David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler, Demián Bichir, and Tiffany Boone.
The outer space sequences we get a peek in this trailer appear promising.
Here’s the trailer for Netflix’s The Midnight Sky:
The Midnight Sky lands on Netflix December 23.
