George Clooney‘s new Netflix movie The Midnight Sky is dropping its full trailer later this week.

A barren Earth, a man in isolation facing the end of mankind: sounds a little less like an apocalyptic sci-fi drama and more like reality. But hey, back when George Clooney shot The Midnight Sky, the world hadn’t yet fallen to pieces. The Oscar winner wrapped his sci-fi space drama , which follows a space crew returning to Earth only to find one living survivor (Clooney), back in February — just before the pandemic hit.
“There wasn’t the pandemic, and we hadn’t set the whole West Coast on fire,” Clooney told Vanity Fair, which debuted the first images from The Midnight Sky, coming this winter to Netflix. “I mean, the picture we show of Earth [in the movie] doesn’t look that much different than the satellite pictures of the West Coast right now.”

The Theory of Everything‘s Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones reunite for The Aeronauts, a big, effects-driven adventure about two very British people who take to the skies. It might sound foolhardy, but don’t worry: it’s all in the name of science. The film is based loosely on a true story, but it’s really just an excuse to jostle Redmayne and Jones around against cool-looking backdrops. Watch The Aeronauts trailer below.
