When is The Midnight Sky on Netflix?
It’s only a 20-second teaser, but it builds the excitement for the official trailer of The Midnight Sky that will be released on Tuesday. The Midnight Sky is a highly anticipated Netflix movie coming to the streaming network in December and stars Academy Award winner George Clooney.
The teaser shows us very little, but you can hear a distressed Augustine Lofthouse (Clooney) trying to radio out to anyone who is listening. There is no response on this clip.
In the movie, Augustine is a lone scientist stationed in the Arctic, living in a post-apocalyptic world. This film is another Netflix original based on a book.
The book is titled Good Morning, Midnight, and is penned by Lily Brooks-Dalton. The storyline follows Augustine as he tries to reach out to a group of astronauts stationed in space and unaware of the dangers they will encounter if they return to earth. Everyone else who was stationed with Augustine had previously evacuated, but a mysterious child is left behind by Iris’s name.
The film is a story of survival, and there is little dialogue throughout the film, but its message is clear.

Clooney stars with Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler, Demian Bichir, Tiffany Boone, and Caoilinn Springall.
The Midnight Sky marks Clooney’s ninth time in the director’s chair. The other films he has directed include Catch-22, Suburbicon, The Monuments Men, The Ides of March, Leatherheads, Good Night, and Good Luck, Unscripted and Confession of a Dangerous Mind.
In a recent interview with Deadline, Clooney shared that this movie was filmed on 65mm because it was hoped to be viewed in an IMAX theater prior to the pandemic. With most theaters being closed, that probably won’t be able to happen.
The full trailer for The Midnight Sky will be released on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
