With its adaptation of The Last of Us, HBO is banking on the goodwill that Naughty Dog’s zombie-adventure franchise has banked through two games, an expansion, and a handful of comics.

Stunning ‘The Last of Us' trailer puts Joel and Ellie's relationship in the spotlight

If the wait to watch HBO’s adaptation of The Last of Us wasn’t long enough already, the network has shared a new trailer for the upcoming series ahead of its January 15th release date. Clocking in at almost two-and-a-half minutes long, the clip offers our best look yet at the Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) production. And for those who may have worried that the series would hew too closely to Naughty Dog’s source material, it shows the adaptation’s creators weren’t afraid to bring something new to the franchise. 

That’s on display early on when there’s a short scene of Ellie pretending to be a clicker. The exchange that follows is one of the few light-hearted moments in the trailer. Later in the clip, eagle-eyed fans will spot Ashley Johnson, the actor who voiced Ellie in the video games.  

If you’re unfamiliar with The Last of Us, the trailer serves as a decent overview of the first game’s story. At the center of the narrative are Joel and Ellie, played by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the upcoming HBO series. Joel must escort Ellie across a post-apocalyptic version of the US in the hopes that she may be the key to protecting what’s left of the world’s population from a fungal infection that turns its victims into aggressive, zombie-like creatures known as the Infected.    

From all the marketing material HBO has shared to promote The Last of Us, it’s clear the network has high hopes for the series. Footage from the show capped off a sizzle reel HBO uploaded earlier this year to hype its 2023 slate.

Netflix's latest 'The Witcher: Blood Origin' trailer teases the appearance of a certain bard

With its latest Witcher franchise spinoff scheduled to arrive on December 25th, Netflix has shared a new trailer for The Witcher: Blood Origin. The approximately two-minute-long clip expands on the teaser the company uploaded last month. After most of Netflix’s past promotional material for Blood Origin focused on Michelle Yeoh’s character Scian, the latest trailer gives her co-stars, including Sophia Brown and Laurence O’Fuarain, a chance to shine. It probably won’t surprise you to find out they’re all badasses in their own way.

Set some 1,200 years before the story of Geralt and Ciri, Blood Origin promises to give fans more insight into the creation of the first witcher. You’ll want to watch the clip through to the end to catch a glimpse of Jaskier (Joey Batey). It looks like everyone’s favorite bard will work alongside Minnie Driver to immortalize the exploits of Scian’s band of elves. When Driver announced she was joining The Witcher franchise back in September, she said her character would play a pivotal role “in connecting Blood Origin’s past with The Witcher’s future.”

Blood Origin comes during a period of uncertainty for Netflix’sThe Witcher. The company recently announced that Henry Cavill would not return to play Geralt of Rivia after the show’s third season. Liam Hemsworth will carry the series moving forward.
