Netflix teaser “The Midnight Sky” reveals bearded George Clooney within the Arctic
Netflix just released a teaser for the upcoming post-apocalyptic drama The midnight sky produced and staged by George Clooney. Clooney also stars in the movie with a really gorgeous beard, and while the short teaser doesn’t reveal much, it ends with the announcement that a full trailer will be released tomorrow.
The film is based on the novel Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Daltonfollows a scientist named Augustine (Clooney) alone in the Arctic after a global disaster that struggles to contact a team of astronauts led by Sully (Felicity Jones) before they return to Earth and find it mysteriously destroyed. The teaser focuses on one of Augustine’s desperate radio transmissions before briefly traveling through an icy landscape. The midnight sky also plays the main role Kyle Chandler, David Oyelowo, Tiffany Boone, and Demián Bichir.
It’s a somewhat confusing premise based on this brief logline, and since I haven’t read the book, I’ll be totally reliant on the full trailer to shed more light on what exactly this movie is about. But Clooney, who stars and directs a post-apocalyptic drama, is a concept that appeals to me, and the strength of his beard just can’t be ignored. His filmography as a director has been a hit and miss, with highs like Confessions of a dangerous spirit and Good night and good luck Side by side with gloomy lows like The monuments men and Suburbicon. But the harsh environment of The Midnight Sky is breaking new ground for him and I’ll keep updating Netflix’s YouTube page until the full trailer is out. Check out the teaser below. The midnight sky will premiere in December. For more Netflix news, see the fourth season trailer of The scary adventures of Sabrina.
