Video: Night after night, a father has terrible dreams. Dreams of death. Invasion. Destruction. Then those dreams start to become reality, and he’ll stop at nothing to save his family. That’s the plot of Extinction, a new Netflix sci-fi film that just got its first trailer.

The film is set to start streaming on July 27. The father is played by Ant-Man and the Wasp’s Michael Peña, and he’s joined by Luke Cage himself, Mike Colter, and Lizzy Caplan (who, oddly enough, played a SHIELD agent one time) in the alien invasion film. Here’s the trailer.

If all sounds slightly familiar, it’s because Extinction was originally going to be released by Universal but then was sold to Netflix.

Generally, that isn’t a great thing (see The Cloverfield Paradox) but there are exceptions (see Annihilation).

The trailer is certainly intriguing, and we’d pay real money to see Peña fight aliens as the lead in a sci-fi movie. But now, we don’t have to. At least, not directly. It’s coming right to our homes in two short weeks.
