Netflix is set to release a post-apocalyptic sci-fi called Io in January and it sounds like an intriguing futuristic thriller.
Starring The Leftovers’ Margaret Qualley, Lo follows a girl who must decide whether to leave Earth after a huge disaster, or remain on the planet she’s called home for the whole of her life.
Sam, a teenage girl, is one of the last people on a post-cataclysmic Earth. With the final shuttle scheduled to leave the planet, she must decide whether to journey to the launch point and join the rest of humanity, or remain on Earth, a castaway in the only home she has ever known.
Io comes from director Jonathan Helpert, who directs a script written by Clay Jeter, Charles Spano and Will Basanta. The film additionally stars Anthony Mackie and Danny Huston. Look out for it when it hits Netflix in January.
