Netflix has released the first trailer for Extinction, an original sci-fi film premiering later this month. Viewers can look forward to an alien invasion and a few everyman heroes to stand up against it.
After winning a lot of hearts as the fast-talking sidekick Luis in Marvel's Ant-Man franchise, Michael Peña is moving from the comedic role into a brooding family man, Peter, who has a recurring dream about a threat to his wife and children. Convinced that it's a premonition rather than a mental condition, he's uniquely prepared when a sudden attack hits the planet.
Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) co-stars as Peter's wife Alice, and he'll also get a hand from David, who is played by Marvel's Luke Cage lead actor Mike Colter. The trailer promises some heavy destruction and humans-vs.-aliens combat while Peter and David struggle to save our species.
Arriving July 27 on Netflix, Extinction is written by Spenser Cohen, Eric Heisserer and Brad Kane, and stars Michael Peña, Lizzy Caplan, Mike Colter, Israel Broussard, Emma Booth, Tom Riley and Lilly Aspell.
