Chiwetel Ejiofor in 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' Series Official Trailer
"My planet is dying… Earth is on the same trajectory." Showtime has unveiled a full-length official trailer for their sci-fi series The Man Who Fell To Earth - arriving this spring. A modern update on the iconic 1976 sci-fi film that starred David Bowie, also titled The Man Who Fell To Earth. They're re-adapting the novel that the film was based on, written by Walter Tevis and first published in 1963. "An alien who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future." The highly anticipated upcoming original sci-fi drama series The Man Who Fell To Earth – starring Oscar & Emmy nominee and BAFTA Award winner Chiwetel Ejiofor – debuts on Showtime this April. Naomie Harris will also star as Justin Falls, a brilliant scientist and engineer who must conquer her own demons in the race to save two worlds. The cast also includes Jimmi Simpson, Rob Delaney, and Sonya Cassidy. It seems a bit different than the first film in that his focus is on saving Earth from climate related mistakes, but it doesn't look like he loses his focuses and becomes an alcoholic as in the Bowie film. I'm very curious.
Here's the main official trailer for Showtime's series The Man Who Fell To Earth, from YouTube:
