We’ve had our eye on Columbia Pictures’ LIFE ever since the first trailer dropped back in October. In the film—due in theaters on March 24—a six-person crew of scientists and astronauts aboard a souped-up movie version of the International Space Station intercept a Mars sample return probe; on examination, the probe appears to have brought back at least one viable cell of life from the surface of Mars.
The visuals of a crew working on and in a near-future International Space Station had that same feeling of verisimilitude that made Gravity so compelling to watch—but the movie’s premise seemed to undermine the visuals’ attempts at accuracy. Because, of course, that single cell of life quickly transforms into a space monster and starts killing people.
from LIFE puts beautiful people in space, then tries to kill them
