What just happened? For those unaware, yesterday (September 26) was The Last of Us Day, an occasion marked by HBO releasing the first full trailer for the game’s television adaptation. Those who played the first title from 2013, or its remake/remaster, may recognize several scenes. We also get our first proper look at the show’s clickers.
The dialogue-free trailer recreates the grim atmosphere of the games, with Joel and Ellie, played by Game of Thrones alumni Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsay, traversing the devastated landscape of the US while avoiding infected humans who have been mutated by a parasitic fungus. known as Cordyceps brain infection.
Any television adaptation of a video game raises concerns about whether it will do justice to the source material: the terrible Resident Evil series was canceled after just one season in the wake of some very negative reviews. But there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic that Last of Us will be something special.
So apparently it’s the last day of us or something?????? 😏 pic.twitter.com/ucjnczmqID
