Netflix is prepping the release of a new action-horror German/English movie Blood Red Sky, that follows a mother with a dark secret that 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 film is set to released on Netflix globally on July 23rd, 2021.
Rat Pack Filmproduktion is behind the movie which is a subsidiary of Constantin Film.
While not much is known about the film itself, there are a few first-look photos, a poster, a whole short movie version of the film, and more…

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 was its purpose, 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 We may very well see a newer version of this scene in the film this July:
