12Monkeys is one of the best science fiction movies to come out of the 1990’s with its bleak vision of the future, great acting performances and the somewhat unorthodox story telling of Terry Gilliam. So it should come as no surprise that in an age of adaptations and remakes that SyFy are making a series out the movie. However SyFy are keen and quick to point out that “we’ve changed everything from the top down, we didn’t just want to do a remake” yet im not sure how much you can really change the concept or key components and keep the name.
However either way the trailer has arrived today, and does seem to keep fairly true to the original story- check it out below.
The show synopsis is as follows: Follows the journey of a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race. And the series stars: Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Zeljko Ivanek
