Life is a 2017 American science fiction film (inspired by Alien  1979) directed by Daniel Espinosa, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson and Ryan Reynolds. The film follows a six-member crew of the International Space Station that uncovers what initially seems to be the first evidence of life on Mars.

Space policy experts positively noted the film’s warning about extraterrestrial contact. – http://www.thespacereview.com/article/3240/1

In March 2017, it was noted that stock footage of a crowd reacting to Spider-Man catching Gwen Stacy from Spider-Man 3s B-roll was used in Life.  This announcement led to theories that Life was secretly an origin story for the symbiote featured in Spider-Man 3, a theory made more popular by the announcement of a Venom film for 2018 the day after the story broke, and that Lifes screenwriters, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, had previously written a Venom script.
