The sky is falling in CBS’ new summer thriller!

In this exclusive trailer for Salvation, tech billionaire Darius Tanz (Big Little Lies‘ Santiago Cabrera) and MIT grad student Liam Cole (Red Band Society‘s Charlie Rowe) share a frightening discovery with low-level Pentagon official Grace Barrows (Jennifer Finnigan): An asteroid is set to collide with Earth in six months. However, the Pentagon is already aware of this impending disaster and has chosen to keep this secret from the public.

“I’m onto something that someone somewhere doesn’t want public,” says Liam in the trailer. “I’m telling you, the sky is falling.”
