Press/Video: ‘Extinction’ Trailer: Michael Peña’s Nightmares are the Key to Saving Humanity in Netflix Original Film

Thanks to Kayla for the heads up!

Director Ben Young made a name for himself in the indie film world with his grisly psychological horror-thriller “Hounds of Love,” and now he’s taking a similar psychodrama approach and applying it to the science-fiction drama. Young is behind the camera for “Extinction,” the latest science-fiction offering from Netflix. The movie looks to give MVP supporting actor Michael Peña a lead role worthy of his skills.

The official synopsis from Netflix reads: “A working class father of the future faces recurring dreams of destruction by an unknown force. When his unwanted nightmares begin to affect his relationship with his family, he soon realizes they may be the key to a horrible reality, as a relentless alien attack begins to destroy the Earth. As the invaders’ assault progresses, he is forced to find both the strength to protect his family and an understanding of who he truly is.”

Starring opposite Peña is Lizzy Caplan and “Luke Cage” breakout Mike Colter. The movie joins Netflix’s long list of 2018 science-fiction movies, which include “The Cloverfield Paradox,” “Tau,” “Mute,” and “The Titan.” The streaming giant also had success with the sci-fi television drama “Altered Carbon.”

“Extinction” will be available to stream on Netflix starting July 27. Watch the trailer below.

‘Masters Of Sex’ Is Taking Racy Television To A Whole New Level

ET Canada – Sex sells, especially when the plot surrounds it. The show that’s based off of the true stories between Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson, who pioneered the science behind human sexuality in the 1950s and ‘60s, is back for a third season.

ET Canada sat down with the duo in question to talk about the upcoming season and their take on love and sex.

Lizzy was quick to let us know that she has always been in touch with the details surrounding the show’s main subject matter.

“I’ve always been a person that people tell very personal, intimate, dirty things to,” she reveals. “I keep waiting for somebody to lift up their skirt and ask me to diagnose them.”

The Variety Emmy Studio: Actors On Actors Conversations

Back in March Lizzy recorded the Variety Emmy Studio: Actors on Actors with fellow actress Allison Janney. They talked about doing comedy on drama, among other things.

“(Virginia Johnson) passed away after we shot the pilot. But she made it very clear that she didn’t want any involvement in it whatsoever … I don’t think she read the script, it was more that she wrote this book, and that was her story, and then she wanted to just live out the rest of her life away from it all. Which I had to respect, but it drove me a bit crazy. And I’m also not tasked with doing a direct impersonation, because people don’t know what she sounds like or how she moved or anything. Which is good, because I don’t know if I would be any good at that.”
