Clooney Fights To Save World In Space Epic MIDNIGHT SKY Trailer (VIDEO/IMAGES)

Humans need a new home in George Clooney’s Netflix sci-fi drama THE MIDNIGHT SKY. In select theaters and on Netflix December 2020.

As an actor, George Clooney has explored outer space with filmmakers Steven Soderbergh (Solaris) and Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity).

As a filmmaker, Clooney appears to have been equally inspired by both Oscar-winning directors (along with a dash of intense ER personal drama via Mimi Leder), or so the first trailer for Netflix’s post-apocalyptic sci-fier The Midnight Sky seems to suggest.

Equal parts soulful and epic, Clooney stars as an arctic-bound scientist desperate to send a message to a U.S. space mission in search of a new planet for humans to live on, following a catastrophic collapse of the Earth’s ecosystem (the cause is a mystery, but I’m guessing it’s either climate change and a pandemic). Clooney also directs.

The astronauts are played by Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo, Demián Bichir, Tiffany Boone, and Kyle Chandler.

Based on the book by Lily Brooks-Dalton, Clooney’s visual scale looks like one best experienced on the biggest screen you can find. Be on the lookout for one possibly near you when The Midnight Sky opens this December in select theaters before streaming worldwide on Netflix December 23, 2020.
