'Origin': New clip from upcoming YouTube original offers insight into a typical day in deep space before terror is unleashed
New series 'Origin' debuts this November 14 and as reported earlier, this Black Mirror meets the original Aliens-esque thriller is all you need to look out for.
YouTube Originals might not have the fan following or hype like Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu have garnered over the recent past, but with its upcoming original series lineups - especially with the new sci-fi thriller, 'Origin' - the platform could easily double up its viewers. The network's premium video service is gearing up to debut the full 10-episode season of the new series Origin, this coming November 14, and as reported earlier, this 'Black Mirror' meets the original Aliens-esque thriller is all you need to look out for. At least a newly released clip will have you convinced so!
The official synopsis of 'Origin' is: "From the producers of The Crown & producers of Lost comes Origin, a chilling new original series that follows a group of troubled passengers as they wake up on a damaged spaceship abandoned in deep space. Each having left behind a dark past in search of a fresh start on a newly colonized planet, they’re determined to survive at all costs. But as their terrifying situation spirals into paranoia, they come to realize that the greatest threat to their dream of starting over – and indeed their lives – is something far darker than the pasts they were so desperate to escape."
With Paul W.S. Anderson of Resident Evil and Event Horizon behind the camera, 'Origin' brags of a stellar cast, including the likes of big 'Harry Potter' franchise names, like Tom Felton and Natalia Tena, alongside Sen Mitsuji, Nora Arnezeder, Fraser James, Philipp Christopher, Nina Wadia, Madalyn Horcher, Siobhan Cullen, Adelayo Adedayo and Wil Coban. Serving as executive producers will also be Andy Harries, Suzanne Mackie, Rob Bullock, Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, and Jeff Pinkner.
But it is the recent clip released that has all our attention now! As reported exclusively by SyFy, the clip most probably showcases a time period before the original terror in the series begins unfolding. Viewers get a picture-perfect image of the experts going about their typical morning in deep space, and as the website puts it, we get to see it all "from the living quarters to the common spaces, and beyond." You can check out the clip here!
There's also that unique terror induced vibe that viewers get as they float around in what can be expected to be a space adventure gala - something that totally rips us out of the festive mood these months can wrap us in. And what is also interesting is that, 'Origin' offers us a look into Anderson's perspective of the deep space, for the first time since Event Horizon, as noted by the outlet, and that alone should keep fans hooked on to the dark, mysterious action unleashing upon the group fighting for their survival.
