Moody trailer unleashed for sci-fi horror-thriller Sputnik

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

When I was a kid, I always wanted to be an astronaut. Unfortunately, being overweight, mediocre at math, and afraid of heights kind of ended that dream pretty quickly. But another thing that always secretly worried me…what if I brought home some alien bacteria, or worse, an entire alien that could potentially wipe out Earth? I don't think I could handle that guilt.

But that's the premise espoused in the embedded trailer for the upcoming Russian sci-fi horror-thriller SPUTNIK, which Sony is distributing in the US. Here's the official synopsis:

The lone survivor of an enigmatic spaceship incident hasn't returned back home alone-hiding inside his body is a dangerous creature.

Now, despite some slightly dodgy CG, I actually think this looks like it could be pretty cool. I'm always a sucker for alien encounter stories, and the trailer was overall genuinely creepy and effective. Let's just hope the film itself can follow suit.

Meanwhile, while the film already premiered in Russia, it will be coming to a limited release in the US August 14th.

But what do you guys think? Like what you see so far? And what are some of your favorite alien creature features? Either way, sound off below!
