‘If You Were The Last’ Trailer: Anthony Mackie And Zoe Chao’s Sci-Fi Rom-Com Hits Peacock TODAY

This is a pretty weird situation and I don’t know what to make of it. Sci-fi rom-com  If You Were the Last, starring Anthony Mackie and Zoe Chao, premiered at SXSW earlier this year to pretty good reviews. There’s been no advance press for it, until now with the release of the first trailer, ahead of the film’s Peacock debut…today. What happened there?

Is it a sign that maybe Peacock aren’t that high on the film? Or that they forgot it existed? With so many streaming projects out there I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more often.

Anyway, the film is directed by Kristian Mercado with Natalie Morales and Geoff Stults as co-stars.

Here’s the synopsis: Adam and Jane are three years into a NASA mission that has gone very wrong. Their ship is broken, and now they drift between Jupiter and Saturn, finding ways to pass the time as they become more certain that no one is coming to save them. Adam paints, and Jane attempts to repair the ship. They argue over what movies to watch. And every day, they dance. One day, Adam poses that maybe they should sleep together. Jane laughs the idea off — why mess up their great dynamic just to add one more (admittedly very fun) activity to their list of time-passing options? Thus begins a friendly, flirty debate about whether they’re better off spending their remaining days as friends or something more.

Um, enjoy the trailer. And if it catches your fancy, flip on over to Peacock and watch it now.
