…. the First Trailer for Netflix's IO

"The planet has become dangerously toxic, and a woman (Margaret Qualley) who's determined to go down with the ship meets a fellow survivor (Anthony Mackie), who tells her the very last shuttle ferrying people to a space colony is about to depart. Will she go—and more importantly, will they make it?

After Bird Box, Netflix is clearly hoping to score another surprise hit with its next genre release, though IO's nightmares look to be generated from human-spawned environmental devastation rather than anything remotely supernatural…."

Might just as well have rebooted Earth Star Voyager, which was pushing toxic Earth 30 years ago.

I always thought that one had potential.

Sounds depressing like a move I watched a while ago where earth was down to one crop. The rest destroyed by blight and the blight was going to take over the corn. Main character left his daughter on earth and went with others looking for a new home.

I'd like to see a TV series where us humans are invading an alien world, sort of a reverse UFO (the TV show) premise.

Didn't see Bird Box and will not see this either.

The problem with all these escaping Earth stories is that the Earth has turned toxic and uninhabitable, so humanity flees to… a place that's even less inhabitable than Earth.
If humans have the technology to survive in space and on another planet with no breathable atmosphere, the same technology can be used to survive on Earth much more safely and cheaply.
