well here it comes. Finally someone wants to reboot this but more seriously than before. Coming in April.


A modern reimagining of the 60s scifi series of the same name, Lost in Space stars Parker as engineer Maureen Robinson, Toby Stephens (Black Sails) as expedition commander John Robinson, and Parker Posey (The House of Yes) as Dr. Smith.

Quote:
Here is the shows official description. 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.

Now how cool is that! They don't mention the robot, though, which worries me.

Yes.

Hopefully the robot will appear in later previews.

At the very very end of the video you hear the robot say "Danger Wil Robinson"

Yeah. Toby Stephens is a real casting fail in this. But you never know.

Jackie Sharp was a character in House of Cards (US version). She was the tough-as-nails female Senator who manipulated for Frank Underwood until she was used up.

Toby Stephens is the actor who played the sexually ambiguous cut-throat pirate Captain Flint in Black Sails who stopped at nothing to follow his ambitions.

I'm just saying, I wouldn't want either of these people as Mom or Dad.

Maybe the reboot is supposed to be much darker than the original.

John Robinson, ex-military, combat trained, supposedly retired, but secretly working for the Intergalactic Spy Force. Directed to stage a fake crash on a remote planet in order to collect intelligence on a ruthless terrorist whose secret base happens to be there. His family wasn't supposed to come along, but he was rused by the people who sent him. Now, between the terrorists and the ISF, he's fighting to keep his blisfully unaware family alive.

Dr. Maureen Robinson, scientist with more ambition than scruples, who has smuggled a dangerous alien life form aboard the ship. It was supposed to be safely delivered to the colonial military base, but now their ship has crash-landed on a hostile planet, and it's up to her to keep the alien contained ... and fed.

Show's coming out this Friday.
There's a new trailer.
Lots of significant differences to the earlier series.
And reviews are coming in.
89% on Rotten Tomatoes so far.
Here's a blurb I would take to heart:
Quote:
And if the first two hours of "Lost in Space," which are full of poorly crafted wisecracks, were released to cinemas, I would not be surprised if it garnered another very low RT score.

But.

With the third hour, showrunner Zack Estrin (creator of ABC's "Once Upon A Time In Wonderland") and his seasoned TV-writing staff step in - and "Lost In Space" transforms into a compelling and addictive hourlong adventure for seven episodes.

[...] Alas, Sazama & Sharpless return to script the sloppy, low-IQ season finale, and a mostly solid first season falters and bumbles and fails to stick a landing. Just the same, there's more great than bad in this new "Lost In Space," and I'd encourage anyone to jump aboard.
