After unveiling a sneak peek a few weeks ago, Netflix has released the first full-length Lost in Space reboot trailer, giving us a more extensive look at the highly anticipated new sci-fi series.
This is two minutes and 50 seconds of enthralling sci-fi. And those two words have probably never been used together to describe any prior incarnation of Lost in Space. Irwin Allen this is not… and thank the Maker, Gary Oldman, William Hurt and Matt LeBlanc are nowhere in sight. [shudder]
Stick to Episodes LeBlanc.
Instead, what we have is what looks more like a blockbuster movie than a sci-fi series. The production looks like some serious investment has been made. Hang on…haven’t we heard this before? Big budget, gorgeous looking sci-fi..?? Oh yeah, Altered Carbon. And look what a mixed bag that turned out to be. Granted that was more of a sci-fi noir, whereas this looks like an action-packed sci-fi, let’s just be grateful there is so much sci-fi on our screens right now.
Created by Dracula Untold screenwriting duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless with Prison Break and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland alum Zack Estrin serving as showrunner, Lost in Space is described as a “dramatic and modern reimagining” of the classic 1960s sci-fi series. The story takes place 30 years in the future, when space colonization is now a reality, and revolves around the Robinson family as they become one of a few selected to go and create a better world on a new planet. But during their venture, the Robinsons find themselves thrown off course and struggling to find the way towards their new home.
The show stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Ignacio Serricchio, Taylor Russell, Mina Sundwall, Maxwell Jenkins, and Raza Jaffrey.
