As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence – a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential – only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
The film is currently nominated in ten categories for the 94th Academy Awards – best picture, best adapted screenplay, best cinematography, best film editing, best original score, best production design, best sound, best costume design, best visual effects and best makeup and hairstyling.
