With clear inspirations from Alien and The Abyss, the first trailer for Underwater starring Kristen Stewart (Twilight), T.J. Miller (Deadpool), Vincent Cassel (La Haine) and Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist) is now online. The film follows a group of underwater drillers on a rig 7 miles beneath the surface who awaken a group of violent subterranean creatures.
Underwater is directed by William Eubank, who helmed indie sci-fi The Signal back in 2014. The screenplay was written by Brian Duffield and Adam Cozad, from a story by Brian Duffield. The production design looks fantastic, and the creatures are terrifying, quickly making this one of my most anticipated films when it hits theaters on January 10th, 2020.
