Does Netflix have some quota of post-apocalyptic films they need to make? Following such films as Bird Box and Silence, which dealt with afflictions related to sight and sound, their next film Awake imagines a world where, after the required devastating global event set-up, where people have lost the ability to sleep (oh, and all electronics have been wiped out). The centers on a former soldier (Played by Gina Rodriguez) who may have found a solution with her daughter. Rodriguez will reunite with her Annihilation co-star Jennifer Jason Leigh so the film has experts in humanity-ending storytelling.
Today, the official trailer has dropped for Awake. Check it out below:
Awake co-stars Barry Pepper, Finn Jones, Shamier Anderson, Ariana Greenblatt, Frances Fisher, Elias Edraki, Lucius Hoyos, and Gil Bellows. It is directed by Mark Raso (who co-wrote the script with Joseph Raso). It is set to premiere on Netflix on June 9th.
