After years of waiting, we finally have our first look at "6," the next big film from "The Cove" director Louie Psihoyos. 

Debuting as a "work in progress" last weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival, "6" examines the issues of endangered species and mass extinction. Like its Academy Award-winning predecessor "The Cove," it's also big into covert operations and the innovative gadgets created to catch evildoers in the act. 

“We’re not making a film about mass-extinction, we’re making a film about an unlikely team of activists coming together to prevent a mass-extinction,” Psihoyos said in an earlier this year. “I tell people our next film is like 'The Avengers', but it’s real. It’s really a buddy film, but like 'The Cove,' it’s an eco-thriller.”

You can check out the first trailer for "6" below. Look for the doc, with a bit more polish, to arrive later this fall
