Netflix has released a breathtakingly dark teaser trailer for their new original film The Discovery from Director Charlie McDowell (The One I Love, Silicon Valley).
Starring Jason Segel (How I Met your Mother ), Rooney Mara (The Social Network), and Robert Redford (The Sting), The Discovery is a love story set one year after the scientific verification of the afterlife.
“To describe the story as original doesn’t begin to capture the world that Charlie has created that will envelop you,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
“Our global viewers are going to love this film.”
Robert Redford plays the scientist responsible for the discovery of life after death, and Segel portrays his son Will, who falls in love with Mara’s character Isla, a woman haunted by a tragic past.
The Discovery is shot on location in Rhode Island. Alongside Segel and Redford the film also features the acting talents of Jesse Plemon (Breaking Bad, Fargo), Riley Keough (American Honey, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Ron Canada (The Strain).
The Discovery will come to Netflix March 31.
