New Terra Nova Superbowl Spot
Spielberg! Lang! Brachiosauri!

07 February 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Amongst all the big, blockbustery fare unleashed during the Superbowl ad breaks, the trailer for Steven Spielberg's TV spectacle Terra Nova was on hand to give a taster of what's ahead on the small screen. 

Splicing the sci-fi DNA of Battlestar Galactica, Lost and Jurassic Park - or Timecop directed by Ray Mears - Terra Nova kicks in the year 2149, with the Earth ruined by humanity’s mistreatment of the environment. In search of new beginnings and a kinder, gentler way of life, the Shannon family are sent 85 million years back to prehistoric times to a settlement lead by Stephen Lang's charismatic hard-ass Frank Taylor. Can you spot the potential problem?

It's idyllic - the series is shot in Queensland - and the dinosaurs are naturally Spielberg grade. With big budgets and a 13-part season lined up, this is one to keep an eye on.


The first episode is directed by Alex Graves, veteran of Fringe and West Wing, and will debut on Fox in the US on May 23 and 24. The rest of the season follows up during the network's autumn schedule.

RE:
L: crazymoviesdude Yeah, I can cope with Dinosaurs not from the Jurassic Period when it's a modern day theme park and it's just a catchy name, but when you have Brachiosaurs in 85 million BCE, that's just plain stupid and entirely counts me out of this. :D] More
