"The Robinson family, part of a highly trained mission to establish a new colony in space, is unexpectedly pulled off course forcing them to crash land on a lost planet."Goes the premise for the upcoming NEW "Lost In Space" series to debut on Netflix on April 13th, 2018. With a program rating of "R21", the series will consist of 10 episodes. "Written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless ... The series is produced by Legendary Television, Synthesis Entertainment, and Applebox, with Zack Estrin serving as showrunner." (Wiki).
Thus far we have been treated to a teaser, a full trailer (both below) and a poster (see up top).
"Danger, Danger, Will Robinson!"
My clearest memories of "Lost In Space" were The "Robot" from the 1965-1968 TV series (am distinctly familiar with it as I managed to successfully and regrettably sell off a radio-controlled "Robot" collectible over a decade back, at a now defunct sunday flea market...), and even then I've not watched a single episode from the "classic" version ... but alas I had the chance to watch the 1998 feature film reboot (which starred Matt LeBlanc), and was pretty much put off by the lore (I have me the mug still tho :p)...
After seeing the above teaser trailer, I was left wondering how the new incarnation of "B-9 Class M-3 General Utility Non-Theorizing Environmental Control Robot" will look like in this latest incarnation .. until the latest full trailer revealed it, to be both a fascinating incarnation (story and design wise) and a menacing one! And I like it that the producers are "mixing it up" here, with an alternative to the "friendly robot" of yesteryears, to the current "friendly alien robot" with a mysterious past and connection to Parker Posey FTW!
"It's Complicated"? That's just another word for "Ho-Boy! You're in for a ride!"
"Lost in Space is an upcoming American science fiction web television reboot of the 1965 series of the same name, following the adventures of a family of pioneering space colonists whose spaceship veers off-course." (Wiki)
