‘Awake’ Trailer: A Post-Apocalyptic Movie Where No One Can Fall Asleep

In A Quiet Place, people need to remain silent. In Birdbox, people need to keep their eyes shut. Now here comes Awake, where everyone somehow loses the ability to sleep. This latest post-apocalyptic thriller looks like a mishmash of Children of Men and The Last of Us video game series, with a little Bird Box and A Quiet Place thrown in for good measure. After a mysterious event knocks out all electronics and somehow robs people of their ability to sleep, chaos reigns. But there might be hope in the form of a little girl who still has the ability to catch some z’s. Watch the Awake trailer below, and then try to get a good night’s rest. You never know when a mysterious happening will suddenly and inexplicably keep you from doing so.

Awake Trailer

In Awake, “Global hysteria ensues after a mysterious catastrophe wipes out all electronics and takes away humanity’s ability to sleep. Scientists race against the clock to find a cure for the unexplained insomnia before its fatal effects eliminate the human race. When Jill, a former soldier, discovers her young daughter may be the key to salvation, she must decide: protect her children at all costs or sacrifice everything to save the world.” Mark Raso directs the film, which stars Gina Rodriguez, Ariana Greenblatt, Frances Fisher, Shamier Anderson, Finn Jones, Lucius Hoyos, Gil Bellows, with Barry Pepper and Jennifer Jason Leigh, and if you want to have some fun, just pretend this is a sequel to Annihilation, a movie that also featured Rodriguez and Leigh. Hell, Leigh even seems to be playing the same character here as she played in that film.

I like a good post-apocalyptic flick as much as the next person, but I’m not sure what to make of Awake. I guess what’s throwing me off is the lack of electronics element – why did that need to be part of a movie where people suddenly lose the ability to sleep? I guess to make things more desperate, but still, “we have no electricity and also people can’t fall asleep!” seem completely slammed together without much thought.

Still, this looks suitably intense. “Humanity immediately succumbs to chaos the minute its inconvenienced” is a concept I can get behind, because that’s exactly what would happen. Have you met humanity? We stink! We’d absolutely start going bonkers if all our cell phones shut down and we couldn’t take a nap.

Awake is headed to Netflix on Wednesday, June 9, 2021.

Mass Effect Offers All Deluxe Content From 2 & 3 For Free

For a limited time, EA is allowing fans to download all of the previously released Deluxe Edition content from Mass Effect 2 and 3 for free.

Through its official website, Electronic Arts is allowing fans to download all previously released bonus content included in the Deluxe Editions for 2 and 3. The release of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is nearly upon us; as such, new details are beginning to surface more frequently. A few days ago, for example, a patch via PlayStation servers revealed the will receive an 11GB update on day one.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition as a whole should prove a major release for longtime fans and newcomers alike. All three titles in the space opera's original trilogy are receiving boosts that will bring them up to speed in terms of modern standards. Players can anticipate 4K visuals, then, along with 60fps capabilities, and much faster loading times. The Legendary Edition will also boast texture and light enhancements for all three entries. BioWare made sure to focus on improvements to skin, hair, and eye shaders, too. Of course,  original installment is benefiting the most, but its sequels are the highlight of EA's latest news blast.

EA even implemented the first Mass Effect soundtrack and the Legendary Edition's new tune, "Resynthesis." The free promotion will either come to an end on May 31, 2021 or once the "download capacity is reached."

This is no doubt a great offer for those who don't otherwise have access to the previously released bonuses for Mass Effect 2 and 3. Make no mistake, though, the Legendary Edition comes with special items of its own, namely in the form of .

The $150 collector's edition doesn't package in an actual copy of the game, but customers are treated to a whole host of other goodies. A key art metal case, 1:1 scale replica of Shepard's helmet, canvas art print, Paragon/Renegade spinner pin, and N7 acceptance letter all feature in the bundle.
