'Origin': YouTube Original web series' first trailer packed with terror, aliens and spaceships will give you the chills
Origin tells a story about survival in a dystopian land where a group of survivors try to overcome odds, unknowing of the hidden agendas of one of their fellow mates.
There's a new sci-fi thriller in town, and it's pretty much the most epic thing you can look forward to even when the spooky month of October is over. Arriving this November is 'Origin' - a YouTube original, that is sure to blow your mind, and when we say thriller - think along the lines of the original 'Alien' movie with bits and pieces of the Nolan masterpiece, 'Interstellar.'
The official synopsis describes it as "From the producers of 'The Crown' and 'Lost' comes 'Origin', a riveting new sci-fi thriller where a group of strangers finds themselves stranded on a spacecraft bound for a distant planet. The abandoned passengers must work together for survival, but quickly realize that one of them is far from who they claim to be."
As for the cast, it "features an international roster of stars including Natalia Tena (Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2), Tom Felton (Harry Potter Series, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Flash) and newcomer Sen Mitsuji. Rounding out the cast of series regulars are Nora Arnezeder, Fraser James, Philipp Christopher, Madalyn Horcher, and Siobhán Cullen."
Written, and executive produced by Mika Watkins, Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, AVP: Alien vs. Predator) directed the first two episodes. The series is executive produced by Andy Harries, Suzanne Mackie, and Rob Bullock from Left Bank Pictures, alongside Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg from Midnight Radio. The description also adds that 'Origin is a Left Bank / CiTVC co-production in association with Sony Pictures Television, International Production."
The trailer - which came out earlier this month - is packed with riveting clips and chilling details about what one can expect from the film. Spaceships and demonic screams - possibly from extraterrestrial creatures - aside, there are certain interactions and narrations the trailer shares, that is sure to keep viewers hooked, because it's cryptic - in all the good ways - enough to not really be able to decipher which track the thriller might follow.
The voice over shares chilling details of how "This is a new world - a world without judgment. A world where your history has no longer any relevance." And then there's Natalia Tena's mindblowing expressions, spilling the truth, saying: "This ship. The fear. Makes it impossible to trust anyone."
Towards the very end, as the trailer reaches a climax, the words appear on a pitch black screen, warning viewers of the inevitable: "They wanted a new life. Now they just want to live."
The web TV series is set to premiere on November 14, 2018, on YouTube Premium.
