New Trailer For George Clooney's Sci-Fi Netflix Movie The Midnight Sky Aims High

George Clooney will direct, and star, in his adaptation of the acclaimed novel Good Morning, Midnight for Netflix.


Netflix has debuted the final trailer for its upcoming sci-fi movie and adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s acclaimed novel Good Morning, Midnight, retitled The Midnight Sky. You can check out all the tense drama below in case you missed the first trailer.

The Midnight Sky is a post-apocalyptic tale that follows Augustine (George Clooney) and his daughter (newcomer Caoilinn Springall) as they race to stop Sully (The Crown's Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home that is now an absolute frozen tundra.

The film also stars David Oyelowo (Selma), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights), Demián Bichir (Weeds), and Tiffany Boone (Hunters).

Back in October, Clooney said this is an unfortunate timely film. “I got the script way before the pandemic, but still there were all these other elements,” Clooney says. “There’s the denying of climate change but also the idea of how hateful it’s become, how race and all these other things that are tinderboxes in our country really just require anybody to throw a match in it. That’s why I was drawn to the story because if you play that kind of hatred out over a 20-year period of time, it’s not inconceivable that we destroy ourselves.”

This is Clooney's seventh time in the director's chair for a feature film, another one on the way with Ben Affleck called The Tender Bar. The movie is based on J.R. Moehringer's memoir of the same name of that chronicles his life and his time at his uncle's bar. Clooney was previously Oscar-nominated for Best Director back in 2006, with only his second time out directing a film.

The Midnight Sky premieres on Netflix December 23.
