10 sci-fi movies coming out in 2017 we can't wait to see
Dust off that lightsaber and get ready for a thrilling year of science fiction at the cinema.
Directed by Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa, "LIFE" follows a group of astronauts on the International Space Station tasked with analyzing a sample from Mars for life. Unbeknownst to them, the sample proves to harbor a threat greater than anticipated.
The all-star cast includes American Jake Gyllenhaal, Canadian Ryan Reynolds and Swedish star Rebecca Ferguson. According to a recent review of the screenplay, the film features themes similar to the sci-fi classic "Alien," but with a modern-day spin.
"I don’t know what the 'Alien' people are going to think of this," ScriptShadow reports. "But it’s just different enough to invite a fresh take on the “alien organism attacking humans in a contained station” situation. And also, it’s a riveting read."
"LIFE" will orbit theaters on March 24, 2017.
