Finally some news about Extinction, after the January 2018 release date was pulled by Universal. According to Variety, Netflix has acquired the worldwide rights to the film, starring Michael Pena and Lizzy Caplan, and will release Exctinction later this year - I assume only for streaming.
Tom's character is named Chris, but we know no more than that about him.
Netflix plans to release “Extinction” later this year. The company confirmed the move to Variety on Thursday, four days after it began streaming J.J. Abrams’ “The Cloverfield Paradox” following the Super Bowl, and two weeks after sources said Netflix was buying the rights of what was then called “God Particle” from Paramount.
The film stars Michael Pena (“Ant-Man”) and Lizzy Caplan (“Now You See Me 2,” “Allied”) as a husband and wife. His character has a recurring nightmare of losing his family and that bad dream becomes a reality when the planet is invaded by a force bent on destruction. Fighting for their lives, he comes to realize an unknown strength to keep his family safe from harm.
