The trailer of George Clooney starring ‘The Midnight Sky’ was released on Netflix on Tuesday.
‘The Midnight Sky’ is an apocalyptic sci-fi drama helmed by the Academy Award Winning Actor, which offers insight into a possible future where unspecified destruction renders the earth uninhabitable, according to Variety.
