Looks incredibly like Leviathan or Deep Star Six.

Wow, TJ Miller is working again... I'd watch this On Demand or rent it. It would be cool if this was a sequel to Life as it had some similarities near the end of the trailer.

that in itself is concerning that it would take 3 years to cut it and get it view-able for release (given it comes out in 2020)- Most likely a stinker.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was day 1 VOD by the time it's released.

TJ Miller being in it probably played a large part in why it's taken so long to release. They likely wanted the heat to blow over some.

Any movie that has sat in the vaults for an extended period of time (in this case 2 going on 3 years) is usually never a good sign.

I hope they didn't copy the creatures from Pitch Black. It strongly gave off that vibe.

I'm normally leery of these types of movies, but all these comparisons to The Abyss have me interested.

Plus a January release date. Formula for a stinker.

I'll see it with my A-List. Love the Leviathan vibe and it was directed by the cat that directed The Signal (2014).

This looks nothing like The Abyss, it looks more like a serious version of The Meg with a JJ Abrams monster.

This is a movie I'd check on home video, not in theaters. Wonder if the studio approached Netflix or Amazon prior.

It’s Leviathan, Deep Star Six, all those water movies in late 80’s with today’s actors. And PG-13 so tame. Hard pass until streaming or cable...

I'm a sucker for films where people are trapped in a place with a monster attacking them so I will definitely check this out when it hits video.

With The Abyss, Deep Star Six, and Leviathan, Hollywood sure had a hard on for underwater monster movies that year.

Of course, The Abyss is a cut above and one of my favorite movies so I canít complain.
