Life Red Band Trailer and Clip

The Life red band movie trailer gives away most of the “kills” in the film, especially if you play the trailer in slow motion. Even if you play the trailer in regular speed, so many of the alien-on-human scenes are shown that its impossible for the viewer to go into the film not knowing the fate of at least 75% of the on-screen people. This is before the viewer even buys a movie ticket a month from now.

What in the world was Sony Pictures thinking with the footage that they enclosed in this trailer? Instead of red band, they should have prefaced it with “super spoiler” or “everything, including the kitchen.”

Don’t get me wrong. I liked the trailer but I wish I had been warned before I watched it. I wish I had been given the choice of having a large majority of the film ruined for me.

That being said, what turns out to basically be The Blob in Space is pretty cool. Seeing the alien “on” people was disgusting, like it was in The Blob remake, thus making the kills far more interesting (if not repetitive). Life even has a life-form-in-suit scene similar to The Blob remake scene (at the 1:51 mark below).

 

Back to my original point though: why ruin that in a trailer?

Life‘s plot synopsis: “Life tells the story of the six-member crew of the International Space Station that is on the cutting edge of one of the most important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As the crew begins to conduct research, their methods end up having unintended consequences and the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.”

Daniel Espinosa‘s Life also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare, Alexandre Nguyen, and Olga Dihovichnaya.
