Here’s the 1st Trailer for ‘Raised by Wolves,’ Ridley Scott’s Sci-Fi Project for HBO Max

 In

It’s hard to keep track of all the amaz­ing sci-fi bound for our screens, both large and small. More “Star Trek“and “Mandalorian” is coming to tele­vi­sion while “Dune,” fin­gers crossed, is set for a big screen return, to name just three. Science fic­tion is once again having its moment in the sun. 

Streaming ser­vices are prac­ti­cal­ly clam­or­ing for more sci-fi, Apple+ has “For All Mankind” and will soon be show­ing “Foundation,” appar­ent­ly NBC’s new stream­ing ser­vice, Peacock, is set to reboot "Battlestar Galactica" (quite why, is beyond us), Netflix wants its own "Star Wars"

HBO’s new stream­ing ser­vice, HBO Max is no excep­tion, offer­ing an intrigu­ing new show called “Raised By Wolves.” The first trailer for the show hit YouTube Aug. 5.

According to a descrip­tion by Deadline, “Raised By Wolves” cen­ters around two androids — Father and Mother — tasked with rais­ing human chil­dren on a mys­te­ri­ous new planet after the Earth was destroyed by a great war. As the bur­geon­ing colony of humans threat­ens to be torn apart by reli­gious dif­fer­ences, the androids learn that con­trol­ling the beliefs of humans is a treach­er­ous and dif­fi­cult task.  

The show was orig­i­nal­ly ordered for the cable chan­nel TNT, but made the leap to HBO Max. It has under­tones that are a little rem­i­nis­cent of Netflix’s recent sci-fi drama “I Am Mother,” but that’s not a bad thing. That Australian-made indie sci-fi flick was pretty darn good.

Ridley Scott has had a large part to play in this, serv­ing as an exec­u­tive pro­duc­er and direct­ing two episodes, includ­ing the pre­miere. Scott’s son Luke, who cut his teeth as a second unit direc­tor on “Alien: Covenant,” “The Martian” and “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” also direct­ed three episodes.

The show has been cre­at­ed by Aaron Guzikowski, best known for pen­ning the 2013 film “Prisoners” and 2017’s not-ter­ri­ble remake of “Papillon.” Other writ­ers include Karen Campbell, Heather Bellson, Donald Joh and Sinead Daly.

The cast includes Travis Fimmel (Marcus), Abubakar Salim (Father), Winta McGrath (Campion), Niamh Algar (Sue), Felix Jamieson (Paul), Ethan Hazzard (Hunter), Jordan Loughran (Tempest), Aasiya Shah (Holly), Ivy Wong (Vita), Matias Varela (Lucius) and Amanda Collin (Mother).

“Raised By Wolves” starts stream­ing Sept. 3 HBO Max and the first season con­sists of 10 episodes, with one drop­ping each week, we assume.
