What if you were on the International Space Station and war broke out on Earth? That’s the general premise of Bleecker Street‘s space thriller I.S.S. We have the first trailer for the upcoming sci-fi film that tests astronaut’s alliances when the unthinkable happens. Floating untethered in space sure seems like it would magnify every possible emotion. The I.S.S. trailer leverages the heightened feelings of horror and shock with precision.

It’s a messy, dread-infused situation. The movie stars Ariana DeBose, John Gallagher Jr., Masha Mashkova, Pilou Asbæk, Costa Ronin, and Chris Messina. Gabriela Cowperthwaite directs the script from Nick Shafir. The official synopsis for I.S.S. states:

Tensions flare in the near future aboard the International Space Station as a worldwide conflict breaks out on Earth. Reeling, the US and Russian astronauts aboard each receive orders from the ground; take control of the station by any means necessary. Director Gabriela Cowperthwaite brings together a stellar cast including Academy Award-winner® Ariana DeBose in this high-stakes space thriller.

“Tensions flare” certainly seems like an understatement. All of those astronauts will have to make decisions that will affect the entire Space Station. Does it matter who’s in control if something breaks and threatens everyone?
