Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou guard the last humans on the planet after breathable air becomes non-existent in the new trailer for “Air,” a science fiction film produced by “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman.

In the trailer, the actors play two engineers tasked with protecting humans in air-tight coffins who are the “last remnants of human civilization.” When one of the facilities doesn’t check in, it becomes clear that something is about to go wrong. A fire breaks out, and the electricity fails, with 59 minutes of reserve air left. “1:59” is a time viewers see a lot throughout the trailer.

While saving mankind, they must preserve their own lives as well.

“Our priority is the safety of all American people,” a monotone overheard voice says as the trailer begins.

Directed by Christian Cantamessa, the film is produced by David Alpert (“Walking Dead), Chris Ferguson, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (“Insidious”) and Kirkman.

The Automatik Entertainment and Vertical Entertainment film is set to hit theaters on August 14.

Watch the trailer above.
