All were saying is, get ready for this one because it looks like it's going to become a smash hit. 

Netflix has released a teaser for Nightflyers which is currently in production at Troy Studios in Limerick.

Based on George R. R. Martin's novella - Game of Thrones' writer if you wouldn't smile - Nightflyers is set in the future on the eve of Earth's destruction. 

A crew of explorers journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, to intercept a mysterious alien spacecraft that might hold the key to their survival. 

As the crew nears their destination, they discover that the ship's artificial intelligence and never-seen captain may be steering them into deadly and unspeakable horrors deep in the dark reaches of space.

Gretchen Mol (“Boardwalk Empire”) stars as Dr. Agatha Matheson alongside Eoin Macken (“The Night Shift”) as Karl D’Branin, David Ajala (“Fast & Furious 6”) as Roy Eris, Sam Strike (“EastEnders”) as Thale, Maya Eshet (“Teen Wolf”) as Lommie, Angus Sampson (“Fargo”) as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith (“The Last Ship”) as Melantha Jhirl and Brían F. O'Byrne (“Million Dollar Baby”) as Auggie.

We're really excited about this and the trailer has only added to that buzz surrounding the movie.

Take a look for yourself...

The book has ratings of nearly 90% and was originally published back in 1985.

Nightflyers will air exclusively on Netflix worldwide, excluding the United States but no official release date has been issued yet.

Come on, Netflix. We can't take this suspense any longer.
