Maybe it’s my Alien-riddled brain at work here, but I feel like there’s always someone to be suspicious of during a space mission. Whatever benevolent rescue, or exploratory objective, you can be sure that someone has ulterior motives and is up to no good. After watching this latest Life tease, my brain honed in on just one person: Jake Gyllenhaal’s (don’t let that innocent, nice guy face fool you) Dr. David Jordan. There’s one line he says, and it’s the way he says it, that set off all my internal alarms; go ahead and have a looksie, and then we’ll chat.
You might think Ryan Reynolds’ Roy Adams is the one to watch, but ooooh, no, my friends. Did you catch this little moment, feel a slight chill shimmy down your lower spine?
Here’s my question: Will Dr. Jordan — like those who spaced before him (Ash, Bishop, David) — be revealed as an android? Or, does he just have his own mission, to find new life, study it and perhaps perpetuate it? *coughDavidcough*
Granted, he’s putting on a good show here,
but I still don’t trust him — in the extended trailer, it’s his voice reading Goodnight Moon, it’s him locking himself out (or locking in RyRey?),
and he’s the one who appears to be the sole occupant taking off (in a smaller ship?).
Only one more week until we find out what Dr. Jordan is really up to.
Life is directed by Daniel Espinosa, stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, Rebbeca Ferguson, Ariyon Bakare, Hiroyuki Sanada, Olga Dihovichnaya and Alexandre Nguyen. Get to a theater March 24th.
