"Danger, Will Robinson!"
Netflix have released the first full trailer for the remake of Lost In Space.
The streaming service’s version of the 1960s sci-fi series is a “dramatic and modern reimagining” of the old classic. It follows the Robinson family after they crash on an alien planet after being sent to colonise new worlds.
Lost In Space is set 30 years in the future, and stars Molly Parker and Toby Stephens as parents John and Maureen, while Max Jenkins, Taylor Russell, and Mina Sundwall will play kids Will, Judy and Penny. Parker Posey and Ignacio Serrichio will also appear.
Watch the trailer below, which was released exactly 50 years after the original series ended, according to Radio Times.
All episodes of the series will be available to watch on Netflix from April 13.
Last month, Netflix announced it will spend more than $8 billion (£5.75 million) on around 700 original TV shows and movies this year.
That “700-range” figure includes 80 original movies or shows from outside the US, including German psychological thriller Dark. CFO David Wells told the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in San Francisco the company’s strategy was to “continue to add content” because “it’s working, it’s driving growth”.
Netflix has around 117.6 million subscribers globally and Wells stressed that there being “more non-members” worldwide than existing members is an “opportunity” for the company. Wells also discussed the company’s new five-year exclusive deal with Ryan Murphy – creator of Glee, American Horror Story, American Crime Story and Feud.
Wells said that such deals were “somewhat rare” but that Netflix likes “the kind of content he creates”.
