Full Trailer for Netflix's “Lost in Space” Series
- Netflix has released a new trailer for its "Lost In Space" reboot, which was created by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. The series is produced by Legendary Television, Synthesis Entertainment, and Applebox, with Zack Estrin serving as showrunner.
The film is based on the 1965 series of the same name. But the Robot appears in the series in a modified form.
The Robinsons include scientist-mom Maureen (Molly Parker), dad John (Toby Stephens), daughters Judy (Taylor Russell) and Penny (Mina Sundwall) and son Will (Max Jenkins), with Ignacio Serricchio as Don West, pilot of the family's Jupiter 2 spaceship. Parker Posey plays the rogueish stowaway Dr. Smith.
The series is scheduled to be released on April 13, 2018.
Toby Stephens said about the new series;
"It’s a very clever, modern reworking of a great story. Lost In Space is Swiss Family Robinson in space, so it was a story that existed before Lost In Space. The fundamental story is that it’s a family that is lost in a difficult, life-threatening situation and how it challenges them and brings them closer together.
That is essentially what the story of this is, it’s just the context is a lot more modern. It’s a more modern take on the ‘60s version. If you look at it now, it’s charming, but it seems so innocent. Whereas this is a version that is for our time. I’m hoping it will still have humour and humanity in it, but it has obviously gotta be for a modern audience."
In the year 2046, the Robinson family and the spaceship Jupiter 2, one of several Jupiter ships, encounters a rip in spacetime and crashes on an unknown planet. Stranded light years from their intended destination, the Robinsons and other colonists marooned with them battle a strange new alien environment and their own personal demons as they attempt to leave the planet.
