NETFLIX's upcoming re-imagining of the classic 1960's series Lost in Space is set to offer a more grounded, serious and modern take on the Robinson family's plight and the newly released title sequence certainly seems to match that.
Set to series composer Christopher Lennertz's score, the sequence offers a somewhat Americana view of a nuclear family's fascination with space flight over time, until we finally find ourselves in the future of 2046 seeing the iconic Jupiter 2; the vessel manned by the Robinson Family as they set out for their doomed voyage among the stars.
The cast for the upcoming series is led by Toby Stephens (Black Sails) and Molly Parker (House of Cards) as expedition leaders and parents of the Robinson household, along with Parker Posey as a gender-swapped Dr. Smith and Maxwell Jenkins (Sense8) as the youngest and brightest member of the Robinson family, Will.
A 10 episode series, Lost in Space will be released on 13th April 2018, only on Netflix.
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 Robinson's are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The charismatic Dr. Smith is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but charming Don West is a highly-skilled, blue collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
