HBO has released the first trailer for the video game adaptation Our Lastand it sounds very true to the tone of the game.
Scored for Hank Williams’ “Alone and Forsaken,” the teaser showcases a series of bleak landscapes and tense situations as it sets up the film’s post-apocalyptic world. There are only a few lines of desperate-sounding lines, ending with a whisper of “Save someone you can save”. The teaser (see below) also reveals a 2023 premiere date for the show.
Our Last Set 20 years after the destruction of modern civilization. It focuses on Joel (Pedro Pascal, Mandalorian), a hardcore apocaplypse survivor who was hired to smuggle a 14-year-old girl named Ellie (Game of Thrones alum Bella Ramsey) out of the oppressive quarantine. A seemingly small job turns into a devastating journey as they depend on each other for survival.
Mass-ordered in 2020, the show comes from Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) – who has a master deal with HBO – and Neil Druckmann, the game’s writer and creative director. HBO and Sony Pictures TV produced the series with PlayStation Productions, Word Games and Our Last Naughty Dog developer.
The cast also includes Gabriel Luna, Merle Dandridge, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman, Storm Reid, Jeffrey Pierce, Anna Torv, Lamar Johnson, Keivonn Woodard, Graham Greene, Elaine Miles, Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker. Dandridge, Johnson, and Baker all do voice work for video games; Dandridge will reprise the role of Marlene in the film, while Johnson and Baker – who voice Ellie and Joel – will play different roles.
Mazin and Druckmann executive produce with Carolyn Strauss, Evan Wells, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan and Rose Lam.
