When we brought you the trailer for The Discovery a month ago, not much was known about the mysterious film beyond the fact that it would be premiering on Netflix in March. The trailer has one line of dialog and the synopsis was a single terse sentence. Check it out:
Official Synopsis: A love story set one year after the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified.
The latest trailer gives potential viewers a much better idea of what they could be in for if they choose to learn the nature of The Discovery. While the mood was always dark, the new details revealed are absolutely harrowing! We also have an extended synopsis that, while still brief, at least gives focus to the film’s themes. Have a look:
Official Synopsis: One year after the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified, millions around the world have ended their own lives in order to “get there”. A man and woman fall in love while coming to terms with their own tragic pasts and the true nature of the afterlife.
The Discovery is directed by Charlie McDowell who co-wrote the script with Justin Lader; the film stars Jesse Plemons, Rooney Mara, Riley Keough, Jason Segel, and Robert Redford. Look for it on Netflix beginning on March 31st.
