There was a plethora of TV spots to behold last night at the Super Bowl, and while the Transformers: Dark of The Moon spot took the cake for me as best spot of the night, the one I was looking forward to the most wasn’t a movie at all, it was the first footage of the new FOX action/adventure/scifi show, Terra Nova.
My first thought after watching this was, Avatar: The Series. But that probably just has to do with the fact that Stephen Lang appears to be playing the same character. But once the Avatar notions left my brain, I began to both appreciate and question what I was seeing. Check it out below.
I really appreciate the vast, expansive look from this spot. It appears that a lot of detail has been put into the show to help build this Jurassic world of generations past. And while we only see two shots of the actual dinosaurs, I can say that those two shots give me a lot of hope for the show’s possibilities. Especially in the final shot that features a very large carnivore with big ass teeth chasing a car. I have a feeling Spielberg had a hand in that one.
All in all, the first footage of Terra Nova gives us just enough to whet our appetites for what’s to come in May, but also leaves us with burning questions like, if this is future earth, why would you go back in time to before a giant asteroid wiped out all life on the planet?
Terra Nova premieres this May on FOX.
