The new Netflix original movie, The Discovery, will be available to subscribers of the platform on March 31, 2017, and the first trailer makes us think the story could be one of the most interesting releases of the year.
The trailer, launched on January 18, shows the main cast of the film, directed by Charlie McDowell (The One I Love, Silicon Valley) featuring Rooney Mara, Jason Segel, and Robert Redford. The film becomes part of the increasingly long list of original features of Netflix and it is a love story set in a world completely different to the one we know.
Dr. Thomas Harbor, who plays the veteran Robert Redford, has made a major discovery which has revolutionized the way of conceiving life: he scientifically demonstrates there is life beyond death. However, this great finding gives rise to a wave of suicides of those trying to reach the afterlife. In this set, Toby (Jason Segel), son of the scientist, falls madly in love with Isla (Rooney Mara), a woman whose life is marked by a tragic past.
To complete the cast, we will see actors Jesse Plemons, Riley Keough (Mad Max), Ron Canada (Ted 2) and Kimleigh Smith (Word Games).
Netflix manager Ted Sarandos was delighted with the film at the time of its acquisition last summer, he stated: “Our global viewers are going to love this movie.”
