Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up.
Raised to kill mercilessly, living only for battle, Sergeant Todd (Kurt Russell) finds himself at the twilight of his career (and so-called life) when a regiment of genetically enhanced warriors threatens to make his brand of soldiering obsolete. Despite his extensive skills, he is no match for the new order, and he’s left for dead on a planet that serves only as a junk heap.
There he encounters a ragtag group of castaways and slowly begins to learn how to be less a killer and more a human. All is disrupted, though, when the genetic regiment arrives on the trash planet and decides to eradicate the local human “trespassers.” Though Todd had been over-matched before, this time he has more than ever to fight for – a home.
Race car driver, Alex Furlong (Emilio Estevez), is transported to the future after a fatal accident. There, Alex is pursued by bounty hunters who want to erase his memory and reuse his body for super-rich clientele. When Alex discovers the man who wants his body, he will have to persuade him to stop or kill him.
