Could we have a better word scramble to describe a trailer? I don’t think so. But that is exactly what happens in the trailer for sci-fi thriller 65. Adam Driver’s character adopts a young girl after their space travels go awry. Luckily for them, the planet they land on has drinkable water and a breathable atmosphere… It’s actually Earth. Unluckily for them, this planet is earth 65 million years ago, and it also has dinosaurs. Who may or may not be of an extra-killer variety? When we think about futuristic space travel movies, we don’t often think of adding pre-historic creatures into the mix. But really, why not have dinosaurs running around? And they are just the backdrop to Adam Driver’s journey toward understanding the meaning of family? Sign us up.

As if all of that weren’t enough, the trailer description for 65 reminds us that this movie comes “from the writers of A Quiet Place and producer Sam Raimi.” So we know that although the premise seems absurd, this movie will likely offer us an amazing adventure. A Quiet Place became a sensation in 2018 and offered us one of the most interesting horror conceits in recent history. And, of course, we know Sam Raimi knows what’s what. Of course, we trust Adam Driver’s acting with our lives. So altogether, 65 has one strong team.
The full synopsis of the movie reveals a little more about its plot and clarifies what we saw already in the 65 trailer.
After a catastrophic crash on an unknown planet, pilot Mills (Adam Driver) quickly discovers he’s actually stranded on Earth…65 million years ago. Now, with only one chance at rescue, Mills and the only other survivor, Koa (Ariana Greenblatt), must make their way across an unknown terrain riddled with dangerous prehistoric creatures in an epic fight to survive. From the writers of A Quiet Place and producer Sam Raimi comes 65, a sci-fi thriller starring Adam Driver, Ariana Greenblatt, and Chloe Coleman. Written, directed, and produced by Scott Beck & Bryan Woods – the film is also produced by Sam Raimi, Deborah Liebling and Zainab Azizi.
Space travel and time travel do go hand in hand. The further you get out into space from a point, the more differently you experience time as compared to your original location. We’re not sure how Adam Driver achieves time travel at one point in time and space in 65. But, hey, we’re game to find out. And to watch him take on the dinos. And to watch him become a good dad. Basically, we feel ready for this movie. The second trailer for 65 only builds on that excitement, focusing on dinos and dads.
65 releases in theaters on March 10.
