Although he is mostly known as a horror director, Alexandre Aja is returning to the science-fiction genre for the first time since his 1999 directorial debut Furia with the upcoming Netflix original Oxygen. The movie stars Mélanie Laurent as a woman who wakes up in a cryogenic sleep chamber with a limited oxygen supply and no memory of how she got there. It appears to be a single location thriller in the vein of Buried but it is unclear from the trailer if the story expands out from there. At the very least, it is an intriguing set up and it is also interesting in that it is Aja’s first French language film since High Tension. Oxygen arrives on Netflix on May 12th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.
