George Clooney's saving the world, again. This time, though, he's doing so by stopping other humans returning to Earth. Huh?
That's the plot of The Midnight Sky, which revolves around a lonely scientist, played by Clooney, who's holed up in the Arctic with his daughter. The pair must race to get to a satellite in order to inform a group of incoming astronauts that a mysterious global catastrophe has taken place and they must turn around.
Based on the book Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton, The Midnight Sky is coming to Netflix this December, and the first trailer has been released, showcasing the impressive cast – Clooney is joined by Felicity Jones, Kyle Chandler, and David Oyelowo – and stunning visuals. Watch the trailer above.
Clooney also serves as director. The Midnight Sky marks his first movie role since Money Monster in 2016 – in the meantime, he's been busy producing and directing the recent TV adaptation of Catch-22, as well as serving as an executive producer on Kirsten Dunst's On Becoming a God in Central Florida.
The Midnight Sky does not have a specific release date, with Netflix only offering an ETA of December. While we wait, be sure to check out the best Netflix movies available to watch right now.
