The first full trailer for Netflix’s slick update of cult classic Lost In Space has docked online. Based on the 60s TV series of the same name, the new take on Lost In Space certainly looks like an improvement on the 1998 movie version that starred Matt LeBlanc and Gary Oldman. Full disclosure, I don’t hate the movie, I don’t like it that much either, but it’s nowhere near as bad as Space Truckers. A slight compliment, but a compliment none the less.
The new version of Lost In Space stars Toby Stephens and Molly Parker as Ma and Pa Robinson, with Ignacio Serricchio, Taylor Russell, Maxwell Jenkins, and Parker Posey as the frequently evil Dr Smith. For more details, here’s the official synopsis;
Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, light-years from their original destination. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith (Posey) is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue-collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
All ten episodes of Lost In Space season one will be available on Netflix on April 13.
