Travel Through Time with Syfy’s ’12 Monkeys’ Trailer

Syfy has released a new trailer for its upcoming drama “12 Monkeys,” based on Terry Gilliam’s trippy 1995 film of the same name.

Like the movie it’s based on, the show features Cole, played in the series by Aaron Stanford, being sent back from the future to the present day in order prevent a disastrous plague that will spell the end of mankind. The trailer stays true to the mind-bending, time-warping nature of the film as well, flashing back and forth between future and past, never leaving the audience quite certain who is from where or when.

In addition to Stanford, the show’s cast includes Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Barbara Sukowa, Noah Bean, Tom Noonan and Emily Hampshire. The series will premiere at 9 p.m. on Jan. 16 on SyFy.

    As with 95% of remakes, “reboots”, and “re-imaginings”, this is going to SUCK! Hollyweird, get some new ideas, and quit destroying great movies that have already been done.
