Life's Super Bowl Spot Proves That In Space, People Can Definitely Hear You Scream

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Hearing you loud and clear, Jake Gyllenhaal. Loud and clear.

Ahead of tomorrow’s big game, Sony has released the TV spot for is intense looking new scifi horror movie Life, about the crew of the International Space Station discovering a new form of Martian life... a discovery that quickly goes horribly, horribly poorly for the crew.

The footage is mostly from the first trailer we got back in October last year, but there are a few new shots here, from after the alien lifeform unleashes itself upon the crew. We get a shot of what actually appears to be a fully evolved form of the lifeform menacing Hiroyuki Sanada’s character, and it looks like a weird, chitinous snake. Then, for the climax of the spot, we get Gyllenhaal’s astronaut emitting a horrendous, wailing shriek as something presumably terrifying occurs off camera. It’s really rather disconcerting. 


Life, originally planned for a Memorial Day release, will now hit theaters March 24.
