“You need to think about your future…” Ryan Reynolds comes back from the future in the trailer for The Adam Project, a Netflix sci-fi thriller that reunites the star with Free Guy director Shaun Levy.
As an action-packed thriller with a snarky hero at its center, The Adam Project is a comfortable genre for star Reynolds. Reynolds plays Adam Reed, a warrior from 2050 who travels back in time to 2022 in search of his true love, Laura (Zoe Saldana). While in the past, Adam finds an unlikely companion in his 12-year-old self (Walker Scobell). The two Adams learn valuable lessons in their time together, particularly in regard to their feelings toward their father (Mark Ruffalo), whose passing in 2021 is still fresh for young Adam but has festered into a source of resentment for the older Adam.
As you can probably glean from that description, The Adam Project is going to pack an emotional punch along with all its actual punches. And you won’t even have to leave your couch to check out the major movie when it drops on Netflix.
The film is scheduled to be released on Netflix on March 11, 2022.
