The new Netflix movie, Extinction depicts an alien invasion which puts a father on the frontlines of protecting his family. Set in the near future, the film revolves around a father who has a recurring dream of losing his family.
His nightmare turns into reality when the planet is invaded by a force bent on destruction. Now, fighting for their lives, he comes to realize an unknown strength to keep them safe from harm.
By the sound of it, it certainly suggests this sci-fi film has taken some inspiration from previous alien invasion flicks. In fact, it is not hard to see some resemblance of War of the Worlds, Edge of Tomorrow and Battle Los Angeles being thrown in the mix especially in the trailer below.
Extinction is directed by Ben Young and stars Michael Peña, Lizzy Caplan and Mike Colter. The sci-fi thriller will premiere on 27 July exclusively on Netflix.
