HBO reveals the first trailer of The Last of Us and it goes hard!
While HBO has just aired the first episode of House of the Dragon – the Game of Thrones prequel about the adventures of the Targaryens -, the American network took the opportunity to pamper its viewers. After several months of waiting since the announcement of the video game adaptation into a series, The Last of Us finally has its first trailer. Spoiler alert: this is likely to delight more than one!
The series will not be released until 2023, yet many are already waiting for it. HBO is slowly raising the tension with this new trailer of The Last Of Us, revealed at the same time as some extracts from other upcoming series on HBO Max. At the beginning of this one, we can see Joel Miller (Pedro Pascal — The Mandalorian, Narcos) for the first time, crossing a snowy bridge next to Ellie (Bella Ramsey, Game of Thrones). The short trailer of about 30 seconds also gives us a first glimpse of Nick Offerman (The Millers, 21 and 22 Jump Street) as Bill. The images revealed are not unlike those of the game, which promises fans a faithful adaptation of the latter. Some well known parts of the story even appear in the images – but we’ll leave it to you to watch the teaser to find out which ones. However, there are no Infected on the horizon yet: we’ll have to wait a little longer to see more.
A huge budget for an upcoming huge success
The Last of Us will therefore repeat the events of the first game, all over 10 episodes. The series takes place in a post-apocalyptic world after a fungus, the cordyceps, has taken control of humans to turn them into zombies. It is in this dangerous atmosphere that Joel is hired to escort a young teenage girl across the United States. A long journey begins in order to reach other survivors.
To adapt the video game on small screens, HBO has thought big by giving the series a budget of about 10 million dollars (a little less than the last season of Game of Thrones, but double the first). This promises to make The Last of Us a real visual spectacle. The game director of the game signed by Naughty Dog, Neil Druckmann, has also directed at least one episode, which will please the fans whose expectations are numerous.
The Last of Us promises to be a very faithful adaptation of the original game. Fans can continue to trust HBO, which never seems to miss its target, with success after success.
