12 Monkeys first trailer for SyFy’s reboot raises questions

Same characters, new faces in first promo for SyFy’s 12 Monkeys TV series

The first promo for SyFy’s 12 Monkeys reboot is here, and it’s going for smart and moody… but does it work?

Obviously, the series won’t have the budget of Gilliam’s movie, or his genius behind the camera for that matter, and we’re still quite a long way off from its 2015 release. Hopefully, the series will embrace the weirdness and hopeful spirit of the film rather than simply use the character names for a Terminator-style time-jump thriller.

12 Monkeys begins in January 2015. You can buy Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys on Blu-ray for £7 at Amazon.co.uk.
