Six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet. The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism - the first example of life beyond Earth. But..things aren't always what they seem. As the crew begins to conduct research, and their methods end up having unintended consequences, the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.Written by
This was the second time Hiroyuki Sanada played an astronaut. He previously played one in Sunshine (2007), and both movies also co-starred an actor who had played a Marvel comic book character. Chris Evans played Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four (2005) and its sequel, as well as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he co-starred in Sunshine (2007) with Hiroyuki Sanada. Ryan Reynolds played the titular character in Deadpool (2016) and co-starred in this movie and, he also played DC Comics character Hal Jordan in Green Lantern (2011). See more »
Early in the film, it is stated that the ISS has been in operation for 30 years or around that long. That would make the film set some time between 2028 and 2030. David later states that he remembers the Challenger explosion and that school was let out early because of it. That event occurred January 1986, meaning David would have to be somewhere around 45-50 years old for him to have been in school when that event happened. His appearance certainly doesn't show it, and the actor Jake Gyllenhaal was in fact born in 1980, was 5 years old when the Challenger disaster happened, and was 36 when the movie was released.

The music for the end titles begins with the song Spirit in the Sky. This was used during the live broadcast from the ill-fated Apollo XIII moon mission. A recreation of this broadcast, along with this song, was included in the film of the same name. The irony is intentional, as the song is about dying. See more »
I was highly annoyed by the unprofessional and error-prone behaviour of the movie characters. Throughout the movie, you will ask yourself: How can he be so stupid? Why is she not doing the obvious? Why are the astronauts emphasising proper procedures, then five seconds later breaking their own rules? How come a former soldier is breaking the chain of command? There is nothing realistic about the behaviour of these characters. In the end, I just hated them. I do not believe that there is a demographic that likes movies like this. Either the script was written by an incompetent author, or the directors are ignorant of what makes a good movie.
