Watch Aliens Shut Ryan Reynolds’ Mouth in ‘Life’ Trailer (Video)

The space thriller flies into theaters March 24

Columbia Pictures and Skydance’s “Life” follows a group of astronauts on the International Space Station whose optimism in finding a form of life on Mars is decidedly not rewarded.

In the full-length trailer released today — one day after the studio unveiled its 30-second Super Bowl spot — the happy spacefaring crew retrieves a craft from Mars and discovers a rapidly multiplying cellular organism on board. The crew reacts with wonder and even humor — until the alien literally grabs hold and sends the group scrambling to save themselves. As it turns out, the rapidly evolving lifeform caused Mars to go extinct and now, having breached their spacecraft, threatens the crew and the entirety of life on earth.

“Life” stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare and Olga Dihovichnaya. Daniel Espinosa directed the movie, which was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and produced by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn. Don Granger and Vicki Dee Rock are executive producers.

The film comes out March 24.

Reynolds picked up a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy this year for his work in “Deadpool,” which was one of 2016’s biggest surprise hits. He last appeared in “Nocturnal Animals.” Ferguson’s most recent role was in “The Girl on the Train.”
