A new Netflix trailer aired during the Super Bowl has once again teased the glorious array of major releases, as well as offering a further look at the upcoming sci-fi adventure The Adam Project.

The Adam Project will be led by Ryan Reynolds as Adam Reed, a wounded time traveler who ventures into the past from 2050 on a rogue mission to search for the woman he loves (played by Zoe Saldaña) who had previously gotten lost in the time-space continuum under mysterious circumstances. However, when Adam’s ship is damaged, he ends up sent spiraling back to 2022, and the only place he knows from that time, his home. It’s there that a 12-year-old version of Adam (played by Scobell) becomes his ally.
Alongside Ryan Reynolds, The Adam Project stars newcomer Walker Scobell, both of whom will play the two different versions of the central character. The Adam Project also features Avengers: Endgame star Mark Ruffalo as the title character’s physicist father, a man who holds great importance for the future; Guardians of the Galaxy alum Zoe Saldaña as Reynolds’ fighter pilot wife; Electra star Jennifer Garner as the mother of Adam at age 13; and The Incredibles 2 star Catherine Keener, who will reportedly play the movie’s villain.
Dircted by Shawn Levy and written by Jonathan Tropper, T.S. Nowlin, Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin, The Adam Project is scheduled to land on Netflix on March 11, 2022. The first reactions to The Adam Project have already come to light, with many praising the movie as a delightful 80s throwback and applauding the perfect balance of humor, drama, and emotion with the various action-packed, sci-fi elements.
