Netflix is prepping the release of a new action-horror German/English movie, Blood Red Sky, which follows a mother with a dark secret who has to protect her son while on a plane. The movie was formerly known as Transatlantic 473, but was later renamed. Here’s what we know so far.

Netflix’s Blood Red Sky was written and directed by German director Peter Thorwarth. Thorwarth worked on such projects as The Wave, Not My Day, and more. Joining Thorwarth in the writing room was Stefan Holtz, who worked with him on several previous projects.

The short movie version of Blood Red Sky

Netflix’s Blood Red Sky is not the first iteration of this story as Peter Thorwarth directed a short action scene with a different cast and crew back in 2015. It is unclear what its purpose was, but it is available publicly online, so we might as well take a look. We may very well see a newer version of this scene in the film this July.
