The cast for the movie includes Adam Sandler, Carey Mulligan, Kunal Nayyar, Lena Olin, with Isabella Rossellini and Paul Dano.
An updated logline for the new movie, set to debut globally on Netflix on March 1st, 2024, is as follows:
“As an astronaut sent to the edge of the galaxy to collect mysterious ancient dust finds his earthly life falling to pieces, he turns to the only voice who can help him try to put it back together. It just so happens to belong to a creature from the beginning of time lurking in the shadows of his ship.”

The new movie was just recently given an R-rating for bad language by the MPA suggesting that a release was imminent.
