Oxygen, a new sci-fi thriller from director Alexandre Aja (Crawl), is set to premiere on Netflix on May 21, 2021.
According to a press release we received this morning, “The film tells the story of a young woman (Mélanie Laurent, 6 Underground, Inglourious Basterds), who wakes up in a cryogenic pod. She doesn’t remember who she is or how she ended up there. As she’s running out of oxygen, she must rebuild her memory to find a way out of her nightmare.”
In advance of the release, the streaming platform released a new teaser trailer today which gives us a glimpse of the claustrophobic story the film has in store. As the woman attempts to escape the pod, a mysterious voice suddenly speaks telling her, “They don’t want you to recover your memory…but I can help you.”
Great sci-fi thrillers are few and far between but with Aja in the director’s chair, it’s safe to say we can most certainly expect the unexpected. The director also serves as producer on the film alongside Gregory Levasseur. Vincent Maraval, Brahim Chioua and Noëmie Devide served as producers on the project, as well, under their Getaway Films banner.
