The movie, which has already been delivered as a crowdpleaser among those that viewed the film early, has garnered talks that Clooney is in line for multiple Oscar category nominations; for best director and picture.  Clooney’s fellow cast include:  Felicity Jones and David Oyelowo.

The film is a post-apocalyptic story about an astronomer named Augustine, played by Clooney.  Set in a remote outpost in the Arctic, he receives news of a catastrophic event, forcing him and his fellow scientists to evacuate.  After refusing to leave his post, he come across a mysterious child, Iris, played by newcomer actor Caoilinn Springall.  Together they race to contact a group of astronauts who are making their return home from a mission to Jupiter in order to avoid the global catastrophe. 

Check out “The Midnight Sky” which will be released on the streaming platform Netflix come December 23.
