In space, no one can hear you scream.

The iconic tagline may be one of the cornerstones of the Alien movie franchise, but the maxim could very well also be applied to director Daniel Espinosa's new sci-fi movie, Life.

Deadly alien life form on the loose on a space ship/station? Check. Use of a flamethrower? Check. Stranded crew fighting for their very survival against said deadly alien life form? Check.

Hot on the heels of last weekend's Super Bowl TV spot and trailer, Sony has unleashed a second international trailer for director Daniel Espinosa’s (Safe House, Child 44) upcoming film penned by the Deadpool dynamic writing duo of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

The latest trailer not only includes some cool new footage but also something that's been MIA from the previous offerings: some moments of levity (which are set to "Spirit in the Sky," at that). However, things quickly take a turn for the worse when the crew starts poking and prodding a Martian microbe.

Life tells the story of the six-member crew of the International Space Station that's on the cutting edge of one of the most important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As the crew begins to conduct research, their methods end up having unintended consequences and the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.

Life opens on March 24.
