Stowaway (2021, dir. Joe Penna)

An injured technician is found aboard a Mars mission: a dilemma ensues. Contrived hard SF drama that struggles to maximize the possibilities of either its premise or the ensuing threat. Not really a stowaway either. Good-looking and well acted, though. Nevertheless, Marooned did this better back in 1969.

Here’s the trailer.

Arctic (2018, dir. Joe Penna)

A crashed pilot tries to survive in the frozen Arctic. Terrific version of a survival story archetype that’s perhaps familiar to viewers. Nevertheless, this near-silent movie delivers in conviction, thrills, emotion and in a driven leading performance from Mikkelsen. Recommended.
