“Extinction” Trailer Pulls From the Best of Science Fiction
Netflix is making catastrophic alien invasions look brand-new.
Netflix released the first trailer for “Extinction” and it’ll have you second-guessing the last nightmare you had.
Michael Peña portrays a father plagued by dreams of a catastrophic alien invasion, which he’s convinced is the blueprint for an actual war about to happen. (Spoiler alert: It is.) If you think you’ve seen this movie, though, you’re wrong — Netflix’s take on this well-trodden trope looks unique in an Edge of Tomorrow or Take Shelter kind of way.
Take a look at the trailer below and decide for yourself. You can stream it starting July 27.
