The Full trailer for Netflix’s Lost in Space is Here!

March 7, 2018
It needs more Parker Posey. And when Parker Posey's not on screen, other characters should be asking, "Where's Parker Posey?"

There’s form for taking a hoary old science fiction also-ran and turning it into something worthwhile – just look at Battlestar Galactica. Now it looks like we can add Netflix’s Lost in Space to that rarefied roster because – might wanna sit down for this – it looks pretty good.

Let’s list the pros, shall we?

    1. Criminally undervalued genre stalwart Neil Marshall (The Descent, the upcoming Hellboy) is directing the pilot.
    2.  The cast includes Toby Stephens (Black Sails), Molly Parker (Deadwood), and Parker frickin’ Posey as Dr. Smith.
    3. They’re changing things up in interesting ways – it looks like the iconic Robot is now an alien device, for one thing, which is a cool twist.
    4. They’ve clearly thrown money at this thing.

And the cons:

      1. It’s written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, whose chief creative credit is the less-than-stellar failed franchise starter, Dracula Untold.
      2. Lost in Space has always been a bit crap.

But look – the pros outweigh the cons! So, let’s go with guarded optimism for this one, shall we? Lost in Space hits Netflix on April 13, 2018.
