THE LAST OF US: Joel And Ellie Look For The Light On New Poster For HBO's Video Game Adaptation

We're expecting a second trailer during next week's CCXP panel, but for now, HBO has debuted a new poster for The Last of Us featuring Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey)...

"When you're lost in the darkness, look for the light..."

A new trailer for HBO's The Last of Us adaptation is expected to debut during next week's CCXP panel, but in the meantime, the network (via GameFragger.com) has shared the official poster featuring put-upon protagonists Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) striking a pose that should be familiar to fans of the games.

Though their roles are reversed here, the poster is a clear nod to one of the first promo images released for the original (and many would say best) survival horror classic.

The Last of Us is set 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed and centers on the relationship between Joel, a smuggler in this new world, and Ellie, a teenager who may be key to a cure for a deadly pandemic. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle the 14-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and the game's creator Neil Druckmann are writing and executive producing the show. The first season will adapt the events of the original game, but is also expected to include elements of the sequel. Druckmann recently confirmed that the series will take some liberties with the story.

The first season will consist of 10 episodes, and is set to hit our screens on January 15.
