A group of space travelers bring a tentacle-y little alien being onto their ship, only for it to quickly grow and become a deadly threat to the entire crew. That loose plot has already managed to impregnate more than one film in the Alien franchise, and now it’s also bursting out the belly of Life, a sci-fi film that re-teams Ryan Reynolds with his Deadpool writers and Safe House director.
The movie takes a look at the most objectively attractive astronaut team in history (Reynolds is joined by Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Olga Dihovichnaya, Ariyon Bakare, and Hiroyuki Sanada) on their mission to retrieve a sample from a research pod from Mars. The sample contains the first living life form ever found on the planet, and besides being far less handsome than the Earthlings collecting it, the gross little thing ends up being a surprisingly smart, fast-growing organism seemingly engineered for killing. You know the type.
Given Reynolds’ low billing, he is almost certainly going to eat it. But if you’re curious about how the rest of the suspiciously good-looking crew fares, you can find out when Life hits theaters March 24. In the meantime, make sure to catch the original:
