The full trailer for Awake¬†was released by Netflix¬†today,¬†a little over a month ahead of the film’s June 9 release date.

Awake¬†is helmed by Mark Raso (Kodachrome), who also¬†co-wrote the¬†script with his brother, Joseph Raso, (Disney Channel’s¬†Z-O-M-B-I-E-S franchise) and Greg Poirier (The Spy Next Door).¬†Budding star,¬†Arianna Greenblatt (Young Gamora in Avegners: Infinity War), plays Rodriguez’s daughter,¬†a role the film seems to hinge on.¬†The rest of the cast is rounded out with sprinklings of star power, including:¬†Frances Fisher, Shamier Anderson, Finn Jones, Lucius Hoyos, Gil Bellows, Barry Pepper and Rodriguez’s Annihilation co-star, Jennifer Jason Leigh.

From¬†Carmen Sandiego to¬†Someone Great, Rodriguez seems to have harvested¬†a strong relationship with Netflix. The star comes with a built-in fanbase thanks to the popular series,¬†Jane the Virgin,¬†and has proven she’s got the acting range needed to lead films in multiple genres. Awake¬†won’t even be her first foray into the world of sci-fi as she previously dabbled in the genre¬†with the well-received blockbuster,¬†Annihilation. While¬†audiences went wild for that film,¬†hopefully they don’t sleep on¬†this¬†new¬†one.
