Storyline

Six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet. The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism - the first example of life beyond Earth. But..things aren't always what they seem. As the crew begins to conduct research, and their methods end up having unintended consequences, the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected. Written by ElDiomedes

Trivia

It was intended to have Ryan Reynolds play the main character. However, scheduling conflicts with The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) forced him to take a supporting role instead. See more »

Goofs

Early in the film, it is stated that the ISS has been in operation for 30 years or around that long. That would make the film set some time between 2028 and 2030. David later states that he remembers the Challenger explosion and that school was let out early because of it. That event occurred January 1986, meaning David would have to be somewhere around 45-50 years old for him to have been in school when that event happened. His appearance certainly doesn't show it, and the actor Jake Gyllenhaal was in fact born in 1980, was 5 years old when the Challenger disaster happened, and was 36 when the movie was released.

Catching and stressful
21 March 2017 | by alinasviderskaSee all my reviews

After recently watched movies about cosmos - Interstellar, Gravity, Arrival - I was expecting to see something similar. Something mysterious, thought-provoking and more or less calm... This movie appeared to be way more stressful! I was nervous almost all the time and some moments were even disgusting. It was nice in a way, because it really catches attention and you are super curious about what will happen next. On the other hand, some moments were just too much. I felt like this movie was more about the emotions rather then having some deep sense.

Still, my 8 goes to unexpected moments and catching plot. This is a nice entertaining movie, making you to overthink the life on other planets. Watch it if you lack stress and adrenalin in your life;)
