So The Midnight Sky is an upcoming 2020 movie that is based in a post-apocalyptic era in which Clooney is a lonely scientist with in an Arctic and doing his best to prevent a team of astronauts that is returning to Earth.
Do you know that Clooney shot several scenes for this movie in a real-life arctic storm? Clooney admitted that a couple of scenes were in fact shot in sub-zero conditions in Iceland! Apparently, his eyelashes used to freeze together after every few minutes and the crew would have to utilize hair dryer so they could be thawed.

Look, we know how dedicated George Clooney is to his work, but this is a little too extreme. But again, he doesn’t have two Oscars in his hands for nothing. The man is truly inspirational when it comes to his work ethic and devotion to his craft.

Coming back to the movie, The Midnight Sky is based on a book written by Lily Brooks-Dalton. It seems like the storyline was designed for a big-budgeted Hollywood movie. Like, think about it – You have George Clooney who won a completely new fan base after doing Gravity. But this is where the filmmakers go wrong.
It feels like the movie was shot with Interstellar and Ad Astra in mind, and somewhere along the way, they got excited by the idea of The Road and Children of Men, and just because everything else seemed right to them at the time, they decided to add elements of The Martian as well. Look, you can’t make a good film by using old formulas. If you start making a movie to give superficial flashbacks of old blockbusters, you’re going to have more food in your mouth than you can chew.
In all fairness, The Midnight Sky is a misfire and it doesn’t do justice to the amount of talent in the film. And we must mention that Clooney could’ve done better at direction – it seemed cold and insincere. Something was clearly off – the script was pitched magnificently and the cast seemed up for the challenge but the movie as a whole fell flat on face.
If you think about it, not all shots were missed. The scenes that were shot in the Arctic were impressive and technically sterling. It’s unfortunate that by the time we get there, we lose the plot. There were several sequences where sadly the intelligence of the viewers was questioned. The director possibly got caught up between realism and fictitious drama.
Another problem that was found in the screenplay was the lack of motivation – there was not even a single moment in the entire movie where we felt that Augustine was committed to his task. Everything was stretched and characters kept interrupting each other’s graph. The flashbacks failed to make any impact, hence failing to build an emotional connect with the audience. In fact, the melodrama seemed forced and manipulative from the director’s end.
Clooney had an incredible chemistry with Springall so its unfortunate that she was only there to make his character look good. Somewhere we feel that the quiet moments could’ve connected with the audience if only the background score wasn’t so aggressive and placed inorganically.

The action that took place in space was marvelous to watch and we feel that maybe our perception could’ve been different had we seen this movie in theatres. What do you think?
Anyway, let’s just say that one of the key reasons that we are so disappointed with the movie is George Clooney – and not because the movie is poorly executed but because we expect so much from him. In the end, we must congratulate Clooney on his effort knowing that nothing could’ve saved this weightless space drama.
It’s sad to see George Clooney’s Netflix Sci-Fi thriller bomb so poorly – it was honestly George Clooney's Oscar-bait Sci-fi than nightmares. Check out the trailer below, it looked so promising!
The movie will be available on Netflix on the 23rd of December. So be ready to celebrate your December Global Holidays with some added fun and relaxation!
