In space, no one can hear you scream… and that’s good because, based on this Nightflyers trailer, we’re gonna be screaming a lot.
In a new sneak peek at the upcoming Syfy drama based on Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin’s novella — which debuted during Thursday’s Comic-Con panel — The Night Shift alum Eoin Macken plays a scientist who tells his young daughter he’s about to go “farther than anyone’s ever gone.” He’s part of a mission to outer space, along with several other scientists, and the stakes are high: “Our world is dying,” someone warns, “but maybe we can save our families. Save our home.”
But things don’t go exactly as planned. “There was a malfunction during launch,” Gretchen Mol’s character ominously reports, “and it wasn’t an accident.” Suddenly, people are screaming, blood is being spilled… and Macken’s character sees a vision of his daughter aboard the spaceship. Is it a ghost? Or something even scarier?
