A team of scientists aboard the International Space Station discover a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars and now threatens all life on Earth.
Both Hiroyuki Sanada and Ryan Reynolds have starred opposite Hugh Jackman in the X-Men character Wolverine movies. Sanada played Shingen in The Wolverine (2013) and Reynolds played Wade Wilson/Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009).
The movie shows "Calvin" being attracted to and consuming oxygen from the lures they used to get it to the lifeboat as well as stating many times that since it is carbon-based, it needs it the way humans do. "Calvin" is from Mars where the atmosphere is 98% carbon dioxide. While there wouldn't be enough oxygen on modern Mars for the survival of the creature, it's explained throughout the film that it had been hibernating for possibly millions of years, since a period in which Mars had higher oxygen levels.
The music for the end titles begins with the song Spirit in the Sky. This was used during the live broadcast from the ill-fated Apollo XIII moon mission. A recreation of this broadcast, along with this song, was included in the film of the same name. The irony is intentional, as the song is about dying.
