“Danger Will Robinson!”
Yes, we actually hear — but not see — the iconic Robot in the teaser trailer (above) for Netflix’s reboot of Lost in Space (and this version sounds creepy as hell).
We also get to meet the Robinson family and catch a glimpse of an ill-fated crash on a remote planet. Plus, there’s some backstory hinting that the pioneering family of space colonists left Earth due to some kind of planetary problem (see additional photos below).
The new series consists of 10 episodes and stars Toby Stephens (Black Sails) as expedition commander John Robinson, Molly Parker (Deadwood) as engineer Maureen Robinson, and Parker Posey (The House of Yes) as Dr. Smith.
The original Lost in Space premiered in 1965 and was created by legendary producer Irwin Allen. The family space drama ran for three seasons starting in 1965. The Netflix reboot premieres in May, just months after the streaming service launched another lavishly produced sci-fi drama, Altered Carbon.
Here’s the official description of the new series: “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.”
