Netflix's Lost In Space: Latest Trailer Introduces Mysterious Dr Smith

Smith in space.


The classic '60s sci-fi series Lost in Space returns to screens this month, in the shape of Netflix's lavish reboot. The show hits the streaming service in its entirety on Friday, April 13, and a new trailer has now been released.

This one focuses on the character of Dr Smith, the ship's morally ambiguous psychologist. The character was played in the original show by Jonathan Harris and Gary Oldman in the 1998 movie remake, but in this new version the role is taken on by Parker Posey (Superman Returns, Search Party). Check the trailer out below:

While the earlier series and movie of Lost in Space were more comedic, this new version looks a lot darker and more dramatic. However, the plot remains the same--the Robinson family find themselves stranded on an alien planet after a colonisation mission goes wrong. The cast also includes Molly Parker (House of Cards), Toby Stephens (Black Sails, Die Another Day), and Maxwell Jenkins (Sense 8), with Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall producing and helming several episodes. Watch the previous trailer here.

In related news, Marshall is also directing the much-anticipated remake of Hellboy. The movie stars Stranger Things' David Harbour in the lead role, with American Gods star Ian McShane as Hellboy's adoptive father Professor Broom and Resident Evil's Milla Jovovich as the villain Nimue the Blood Queen. The first image of Harbour as Hellboy was released last September, and the movie hits theaters on January 11, 2019.
