Set aside the slowly-revealing onscreen text and the movie-trailer voice that declares the film’s name and release date at the end, the new 30-second “65” teaser trailer doesn’t have any words or voices in it. Unless you’re counting Ariana Greenblatt’s screaming. Instead, the Super Bowl spot depends entirely on sounds — growls, breathing, explosions, and an eerie background score — to build tension. It’s pure, atmospheric horror. I suppose that’s what you should expect from the writers of “A Quiet Place,” Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, who are joint directors of “65.”
The duo also serves as producers on the sci-fi thriller alongside Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man 2”), Deborah Liebling (“PEN15”), and Zainab Azizi (“Umma”). In addition to Adam Driver (“House of Gucci,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) and Greenblatt (“Awake,” “The One and Only Ivan”), the film also stars Chloe Coleman (“My Spy,” “Gunpowder Milkshake”) and Nika King (“Euphoria”).
Here’s the official synopsis for “65,” via Sony Pictures:
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.
“65” is out on March 10, 2023, in cinemas worldwide.
