Netflix's new movie looks like its craziest and creepiest yet -- here's the trailer

With the Sundance Film Festival kicking off on Thursday, Netflix has given us a tease of one of its anticipated movies that will be showing at the festival.

The trailer for “The Discovery” went online Wednesday and it’s as trippy as the movie’s synopsis.

Robert Redford plays a physicist who has confirmed the existence of an afterlife, which has led to a spate of suicides. Jason Segel plays Will, Redford’s son, and Rooney Mara plays a woman with a troubled past who Will falls for.

With the use of Roy Orbison’s song “Only the Lonely,” visuals of chilly New England locations, and hints at layers of mystery and violence beyond the setup, the trailer paints the picture of a tender yet deeply unsettling movie.

“The Discovery” will have its world premiere at Sundance and be available on Netflix March 31.
