Netflix has released the first trailer for its original film, The Discovery, which will be available for streaming beginning Friday, March 31. The Discovery stars Robert Redford, Rooney Mara, Jason Segel, Riley Keough and Jesse Plemmons.

So what did you think? I was not prepared for the movie to turn from quasi-romantic to utterly bizarre, so let me help set it up.
