Lost in Space Points its Trajectory Towards Release
Netflix’s upcoming reboot of Lost in Space has released their first trailer. Check out the trailer below.
In this trailer, a woman narrates, explaining that humans are very adaptable, to the point of being able to leave the planet if it gets too dangerous. As she narrates, a group of people makes their way to a spaceship, including Will Robinson (Max Jenkins). This journey is interspersed with images illustrating the narration. The director specifically highlights Will Robinson’s name tag, which they do not do with any other journeyer. This is probably because of the well-known phrase “Danger, Will Robinson.” You can hear the phrase at the end of the trailer, after the spaceship suffers some sort of impact.
The original Lost in Space TV series ran from 1965 to 1968. The original series starred Guy Williams, June Lockhart, Marta Kristen, Angela Cartwright, and Bill Mumy. In addition, New Line Cinema produced a film based on the series in 1998. It starred John Hurt, Mimi Rogers, Heather Graham, Lacey Chabert, Jack Johnson, and Matt LeBlanc. Another TV series based on this franchise was in development in 2003, but it was not successful. Depending on how you count, that means the Netflix reboot is the third in about 50 years.
Lost in Space stars Toby Stevens as John Robinson, Molly Parker as Maureen Robinson, Mina Sundwall as Penny Robinson, and Taylor Russell as Judy Robinson. Other stars include Parker Posey as Dr. Smith and Ignacio Serricchio as Don West.
The first season of Lost in Space will have 10 episodes. All 10 episodes will be released on Netflix on 13 April 2018.
