Some official stills for Netflix’s The Midnight Sky have been released (via Vanity Fair), giving us s first look at the upcoming apocalyptic sci-fi drama from director George Clooney.
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, though as Clooney notes, the world wasn’t in quite the state it is now when production wrapped back in February.
“There wasn’t the pandemic, and we hadn’t set the whole West Coast on fire. 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 Midnight Sky is set to premiere on Netflix this December.
“Star Wars” actor John Boyega is all set to star alongside Jack Reynor, Jodie Turner-Smith and Felicity Jones in upcoming thriller “Borderland”.
Thomas and Charles Guard, dubbed as the Guard Brothers, are on board to direct the film, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
The film follows Irish paramilitary soldier Michael (Reynor), who after a border ambush, witnesses the shooting of his pregnant wife at the hands of an SAS sergeant Tempest (Boyega). The story then narrates Michael’s mission to hunt down Tempest to avenge his wife’s death.
The Guard Brothers co-wrote “Borderland” with Ronan Bennett. The film is inspired by the book “The Road To Balcombe Street” by Steven S. Moysey.
“‘Borderland’ is a vengeance-fuelled chase movie, fusing some pulse ticking action with a powerful message for our times,” said the Guard Brothers, adding: ‘We’re thrilled that the script, driven as much by character as it is by plot, has attracted such a first rate cast.”
The film will shoot on location in the UK in early 2021.
