The movie premise is that the Earth is dieing. Whole crops and even crop species are becoming extinct. This galvanizes a super secret agency to begin with a plan to find an alternative place for humans to live.
A select crew is chosen which will cold sleep it out to Saturn where a small wormhole has been discovered and a previous exploratory mission has already entered. The plan being to follow the first mission in along the same trajectory to follow up on the first information block that made it back through.
And then let the weirdness begin. Loose ends tied up, help comes from the most unusual corners.
I am reluctant to be a spoiler. The movie as a whole is a strong 9 to 9.5, but the stuff they got wrong was done in spectacular fashion. Watch the baseball game towards the end of the movie.
I really can't go further without really becoming a spoiler so I will end with a solid 9 maybe 9.5 well worth checking out.
