Michael Peña is (I’m assuming here) one of the highlights of Ant-Man and The Wasp now in theaters, and now he’s making a jump into Netflix leading man, with Extinction. Here’s what it’s all about, as per the film’s official synopsis:
“A father has a recurring dream of losing his family. His nightmare turns into reality when the planet is invaded by a force bent on destruction. Now, fighting for their lives, he comes to realize an unknown strength to keep them safe from harm.”
Peña is joined by Luke Cage star Mike Colter, which just cements the Marvel connection in a scifi story like this one. And according to industry reports, Extinction is yet another film dropped onto Netflix after and abortive theatrical release, a la The Cloverfield Paradox earlier this year.
Check out the trailer for Extinction below. And the film itself arrives on Netflix on July 27th.
