Life finds a way in trailers for Ryan Reynolds & Jake Gyllenhaal's Life

10.31.2016

What’s better than one trailer for a movie? Two trailers for a movie! But not three. Three is just greedy. Nope, two is just perfect, and that’s how many we got for the new sci-fi thriller, LIFE, starring Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal. The movie from director Daniel Espinosa (SAFE HOUSE, CHILD 44) and writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (DEADPOOL, ZOMBIELAND) depicts a diverse space crew on an interstellar mission to discover life outside our planet, and soon realize life in space is nothing to be f*cked with, because clearly they don’t watch movies.

First up is the main trailer:

The trailer is certainly ominous, but clearly puts more focus on the action and danger of the situation featuring lots of screaming, and the badass shot of Reynolds blasting something with a flame thrower, all before being locked away from the group by Gyllenhaal. That’s what happens when you’re a little pyromaniac, Reynolds. But as cool as this trailer may be, the international trailer is far more eerie and subtle. Check it out!

Though there's still some action (firestarter Reynolds), there are more allusions to the 1979 classic, ALIEN, in this trailer. Not only does it put the focus on the crew and their paranoia, but the trailer also implicates use of the alarm-like “bonging” sound terrifically used in the ALIEN trailer all those years ago. Much like in that preview, this one for LIFE does a great job of giving you an idea of what will befall the crew while still leaving plenty of mystery. And it seems there's another reference in there somewhere...but I can't seem to place my finger on it. Hmm, maybe Jeff Goldblum can help us.

LIFE starring Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Hiroyuki Sanada and Ariyon Bakare opens May 26, 2017.

The Thing In Space?!

It has Jake in it and he's known good material for the past several years so I'll give it a look. But this reminds me of The Thing, just that it's in space.

On the one hand the cast is pretty damn impressive (Ryan Reynolds is in the midst of a career U-turn, so anything's possible) and the feeling of dread palpable. The international trailer is far superior though, for working in actual scientific hypotheses about extraterrestrial contact, and using that to differentiate it from Alien. And Hirouki Sanada being there makes me think of Sunshine. This looks a lot more cerebral than what I usually associate with Reese and Wernick, which is

Still, it's undeniable the parallels between this and the Ridley Scott masterpiece, so I am a bit worried on that front.

Could be goood

There is no way this won't be derivative...but it will be derivative in a good way or a bad way. I'm hoping for good way.

Could go either way

It can either be something really interesting and cool or just be a lame attempt. Reynolds definitely adds a cheese element to it that is very noticeable. Hopefully he doesn't go crazy with it.

Just like in Prometheus, why are scientist dumb enough to touch an unknown alien species.

Woah, careful there Soloist, you're dangerously close to "Transformers is good because it makes money" logic.


And to be fair, while there are obviously exceptions, Reynold's quality record with big budget far is not especially good.

Bet never to it luke!

Box office means nothing when talking about how good a film is, but someone like the soloist only likes films that do well in the box office or award bait crap or he claims to like really bad films to try to troll people.
