Teaser for 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' Series with Chiwetel Ejiofor
"My mission is your mission." Showtime has revealed the first look teaser for their sci-fi series titled The Man Who Fell To Earth, arriving this spring. Yes this is the same thing as 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. The logline for this one: "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 – will premiere exclusively on Showitme in 2022. 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. This is just a first look teaser without much footage, but I'm intrigued. So far it looks good.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Showtime's series The Man Who Fell To Earth, direct from YouTube:
