Netflix has released the first full-length trailer for provocative sci-fi thriller The Discovery, which delves into the afterlife and explores what would happen to the human race if a new plane of existence was discovered.
Jason Segel (How I Met your Mother), Robert Redford (The Sting) and Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) star in this unsettling thriller which is both a love story and an unnerving exploration of mass suicide, as the discovery of the afterlife leads millions to end their life.
The 1:30-minute trailer mixes an eerie soundtrack with short jump-cut scenes, as Scientist Dr.Harper (Robert Redford) sits down with a Journalist to defend his discovery of the afterlife.
“How can you keep a discovery so vital to our existence a secret?,” says Redford’s Harper.
“We opened the door for these people. Now we have to show them what’s behind it.”
The Discovery is directed and written by Charlie McDowell (The One I Love, Silicon Valley), alongside Justin Lader who will also be penning the script.
The Discovery will be released worldwide on March 31, 2017.
