    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Netflix has released the official Stowaway trailer for their
    upcoming sci-fi survival thriller film, starring Anna Kendrick,
    Daniel Dae Kim, Shamier Anderson and Oscar nominee Toni Collette.
    The video features a three-man crew as they embark on a space
    mission to Mars. However, things don't go as smoothly as they
    prepared for when they discover a stranger has accidentally
    boarded their ship. The film will be available for streaming on
    April 22, exclusively on Netflix. Check out the video in the
    player below along with the key art poster!

    This project is Collette's latest collaboration with the
    streaming service, who have worked together on 2018's Wanderlust, 
    2019's critically acclaimed Unbelievable and last year's
    I'm Thinking of Ending Things. She is also set to star in
    Netflix's upcoming thriller drama series titled Pieces of Her
    which is based on Karin Slaughter's novel of the same name.

    On a mission headed to Mars, an unintended stowaway accidentally
    causes severe damage to the spaceship's life support systems.
    Facing dwindling resources and a potentially grim outcome, a
    medical researcher emerges as the only dissenting voice against
    the clinical logic of both her commander and the ship's
    biologist.

    Stowaway will star Anna Kendrick as Zoe Levenson, Toni Collette
    as Marina Barnett, Shamier Anderson as Michael and Daniel Dae
    Kim as Kim.

    The film is directed by Joe Penna from a screenplay he co-wrote
    with frequent collaborator Ryan Morrison. Penna and Morrison
    previously worked together on the filmmaker's feature
    directorial debut titled Arctic, which first debuted at the
    2018 Cannes Film Festival. The upcoming Netflix film has some
    similarities with the Mads Mikkelsen-led film as they both deal
    with the themes of survival and sacrifice.

    Sounds like a ripoff of "The Cold Equations" (though arguably that was
    a ripoff itself):
