An extraterrestrial, psychological thriller with an Oscar nominee and winner? Sign us up. Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal, Venom) stars as a marine on a mission to save his kids in the upcoming Encounter. We're a bit squeamish about eyeball worms, parasites, and such— if you are as well, not sure whether to tell you you're in for a treat or... something else. This could be big-time Body Snatchers vibes or another thing altogether, but it looks intense as hell.

Also starring Octavia Spencer (Ma), Rory Cochrane (Antlers), Lucian-River Chauhan (Heartland), and introducing Aditya Geddada. Check out the trailer for Encounter below.

Amazon Studios will release Encounter in theaters December 3, 2021 and on Prime Video December 10, 2021.
