Scifi Thriller ‘Life’ Trailer Somehow Features ‘Spider-Man 3’ Footage
The new restricted trailer for Life is here, and it does not come in peace. In theaters March 24, the scifi thriller starring Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson and Jake Gyllenhaal looks intense and terrifying — but it also has a bit of an accident edited into it. Take a look at the NSFW trailer below.
Gizmodo reports that a Reddit user found “shocked audience” reaction shots in the Life trailer that seemed very familiar to a scene in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. Maybe that’s because it’s the exact same footage.
The theorizes that Sony shot multiple generic “reaction” shots, then filed the b-roll footage away for safe keeping. Unfortunately, people online have a little too much time on their hands and caught the editing trick.
Take a look at the shots below.
