Kristen Stewart and her cool haircut get into some critical deep-sea bother in Underwater, a brand new thriller that appears like an aquatic Alien. Stewart performs a member of a crew of underwater researchers who should cope with one thing monstrous and lethal. Is it an alien? A large squid? Cthulu? Who is aware of! Watch the Underwater trailer beneath.
Kristen Stewart has thrived in indie movies for the previous couple of years, and now she appears to be entertaining a brand new part of her profession. This part crops her firmly inside what I prefer to name “massive studio junk.” She’ll seem in Charlie’s Angels later this 12 months, and subsequent 12 months we’ll get to see her on this movie – Underwater. Primarily based on this trailer, Underwater seems like somebody put Alien, The Abyss, and the ’80s Alien knock-off Leviathan in a blender. I’m not complaining. I’m all for giant studio junk, so long as it’s entertaining. And watching Kristen Stewart face off in opposition to undersea monsters sounds fairly rattling entertaining to me.
Right here’s the Underwater synopsis:
UNDERWATER is a movie that follows a crew of underwater researchers who should scramble to security after an earthquake devastates their subterranean laboratory
Type of bizarre that they don’t point out the entire monster factor in that synopsis. Was that speculated to be a secret? Along with Stewart, Underwater options T.J. Miller (ugh), Jessica Henwick, Mamoudou Athie, Vincent Cassel, John Gallagher Jr., and Gunner Wright. William Eubank, the filmmaker behind the 2014 sci-fi thriller The Sign, directs.
Underwater wrapped taking pictures in 2017, so the truth that it’s taken this lengthy to reach shouldn’t be an amazing signal. Neither is the truth that the movie is opening in January, which is often a dumping floor for studios. That is technically a 20th Century Fox flick, however which means it’s additionally a Disney flick now as properly. And as everyone knows, Disney has grown a bit skittish about their Fox holdover titles. Nonetheless, I’ll admit I’m taken with seeing this. At the present time the place each studio image appears to be a reboot, sequel or superhero movie, I’ll take any kind of departure I can get – even when it’s a bit spinoff.
Underwater splashes into theaters January 10, 2020.
