After Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, it looked like Adam Driver was just focusing on starring in artsy films like Marriage Story and Annette, but Sony has managed to nab him for a dinosaur action film with 65.
The film is set to come out this March, and we have a new trailer featuring Driver from the future running around 65 million years in the past. Check it out:
Here’s the synopsis:
After a catastrophic crash on an unknown planet, pilot Mills (Adam Driver) quickly discovers he’s actually stranded on Earth…65 million years ago. Now, with only one chance at rescue, Mills and the only other survivor, Koa (Ariana Greenblatt), must make their way across an unknown terrain riddled with dangerous prehistoric creatures in an epic fight to survive.
It really feels like the trailer managed to spoil the largest twist in the film in that Driver is actually stranded on Earth, but I guess they needed something more interesting to draw audiences in besides dinosaurs and Kylo Ren. If you ask me, there was probably a more interesting way to market the movie, but since it’s an actual film, I can imagine Sony wants that mass appeal Avatar money.
With Sam Raimi onboard with the writers from A Quiet Place behind the script, I think 65 could make for one interesting ride. Looking at the scene where there are meteors falling behind Driver, you’d think that this film will have him unwittingly causing the dinosaur apocalypse.
Catch 65 when it comes out in theaters on March 17.
