Stowaway spoilers ahead.

Netflix's Stowaway stars Anna Kendrick and Daniel Dae Kim both believe that the Kingfisher crew made it to Mars.

Just to recap, this gripping new sci-fi flick features Kendrick as medical researcher Zoe, Toni Collette as spaceship commander Marina and Kim as biologist David, who are all stunned to find an unintended stowaway named Michael on their craft, played by Shamier Anderson.

As the station was overbuilt for two and is already pushing it with three crew members, Michael's emergence causes a life-threatening issue. They have just enough oxygen between the three of them for their 2-year mission to Mars, but they now might not even make it there.

Sitting down with Collider to unpack the movie's ambiguous ending Kendrick and Kim felt positive about their chances despite Stowaway ending before the crew arrived on Mars.

"I think so – the crew makes it to Mars!" laughed Kendrick, playing coy about her character pivotal role in saving her team. The finale sees Zoe sacrifice herself in a solar storm to reach an extra oxygen tank leaving the crew with the capacity to carry on their journey safely and save Michael's life.

Kim them noted: "Yes exactly. How do you define crew?" referencing his character actions trying to get Michael to kill himself before they could even try to save since he wasn't really part of the crew and was putting them in danger.

Oscar-nominee Kendrick then went on to say she "assumed" the remaining three passengers survived and completed their journey: "I think thanks to the actions of... you know, some of our crew, the rest of the crew will make it," surmised Kim.

Was Zoe's death all for nothing, or is this feel-good theory correct?

Stowaway is available to watch on Netflix.
