Post-apocalyptic movie The Midnight Sky is headed to select cinemas across the UK ahead of release on Netflix December 23rd 2020, with George Clooney not only starring in the lead role as Augustine, but serving as director.

Before then however, we’re being treated to one final glimpse of the action we should expect from the film, in the last trailer to be unveiled. Do be warned however, there’s a major spoiler for the conclusion of the movie included! 

Watch the new trailer below:

Augustine lives a life of solitude in the Arctic, but when a mysterious global catastrophe takes place he finds a mission in racing to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her group of fellow astronauts from returning to Earth.

To stop them, he must travel to a powerful satellite alongside young girl Iris (Caoilinn Springall) who he finds wandering in the Arctic's frozen wastelands, telling them about 'The Event' before it’s too late.

Previous promos have relied on more peaceful techniques of selling the story, but in this final trailer, it’s all-out action on a highly-ambitious scale. It’s clear that this is going to be a sci-fi flick that puts its $100 million budget to good use.

Early reviews are mixed, with praise coming in for the scale of what Clooney and the rest of the creative team have tried to achieve. It would appear however, that some critics are fed up of seeing films filling up the sci-fi vein of the apocalypse genre.

Those interested in checking it out for themselves will be able to draw their own conclusions in the next couple of weeks.

Alongside Clooney, Jones, and Springall David Oyelowo, Tiffany Boone, Demián Bichir and Tiffany Boone all also star in the movie, which is adapted from the acclaimed novel Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton.

The Midnight Sky comes to select UK cinemas from December 11th, 2020.
