THE MIDNIGHT SKY: Check Out The First Trailer For Netflix's Sci-Fi Drama Starring George Clooney

Netflix has released the first trailer for new apocalyptic drama The Midnight Sky, which stars George Clooney as a scientist who must warn the crew of a starship that Earth has... run into a few problems!

Netflix has debuted the trailer for upcoming sci-fi drama The Midnight Sky, giving us a first at a look at some footage from director George Clooney's latest project.

Based on the novel Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton, Clooney also stars as scientist Augustine Lofthouse, who is stationed at a remote arctic research station. Lofthouse is dying of cancer, and may well be the last man on Earth.

A mysterious event has had a catastrophic effect on the planet, and the crew of the NASA starship Aether (Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo, Tiffany Boone, Kyle Chandler and Demián Bichir) is returning home after exploring a newly discovered moon of Jupiter, completely unaware of what's happened. Lofthouse must figure out how to warn the astronauts while also caring for a child named Iris (Caoilinn Springall) who hid herself away during the outpost’s evacuation.

The premise is a depressingly timely one, but the trailer suggests this might be a more uplifting experience than the synopsis would have us believe. Clooney is an underrated director and he's working with a strong cast, so this should be worth keeping an eye on.

Check out the trailer below along with a poster and some previously released stills, and let us know what you think.
