George Clooney Must Deliver a Dire Warning in ‘The Midnight Sky’ Trailer
Oscar winner directs, produces, and stars in the new film coming to Netflix Dec. 23.December 11, 2020
A group of astronauts have no idea the most dangerous part of their mission is going to be returning home in the new trailer for “The Midnight Sky.” Only a scientist on Earth named Augustine Lofthouse (played by George Clooney) can warn them of the apocalypse that occurred while they were far, far away in outer space.
“That’s Aether. It’s a spaceship coming back from a planet that we hoped would be our future. I have to contact them before it’s too late,” Clooney’s character explains to Iris (Caoilinn Springall), the young girl who also survived the unthinkable. The two spend their days and nights together inside a high-tech Arctic command station. That is until they strap on oxygen masks and head out into the freezing cold to race toward the only antennae that can deliver their crucial message to the crew aboard Aether.
“The Midnight Sky” co-stars Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo, Tiffany Boone, Demián Bichir, and Kyle Chandler. Clooney also serves as producer and director, the first film he’s directed since 2017’s “Suburbicon.”
