Netflix is bringing back the 1960s sci-fi television hit about the Robinson family getting, well…lost in space. Check it out:
The show was also rebooted into a 1998 movie you may remember, but it wasn’t quite as sucessful as the original. A series really is the best format to let a story like this properly simmer…which the people at Netflix seem to understand.
This trailer looks incredible…at least visually. Shows like this, Altered Carbon and others are really blurring the lines of production value between movies and television. Another couple years and it may be virtually impossible to tell the difference.
The robot is a completely different design than either previous version; the trailer even hinting at it being some type of alien now. I think it was a good choice to mix things up and do more of a humanoid look. He still has his classic line though!
It is too early to tell how the story and character arcs will be, but Netflix has had many more hits than misses so far. I’m interested to see the nefarious Dr. Smith gender swapped this go around and played by Parker Posey.
The trailer does an excellent job of drawing interest without giving anything significant away. Time will tell, but I’m definitely excited about this one.
