San Diego Comic-Con is well underway and trailers for new movies and series are starting to drop left and right. Today, SyFy dropped the full trailer for their upcoming series from Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, Nightflyers, and it’s sure to be a wild ride.
The futuristic series set in the year 2093, follows a team of scientists aboard a ship called the Nightflyer who embark on a journey to discover other life forms. At one point during the trailer, a character says “Our world is dying, but maybe we can save our families. Save our home.” Once they head into space they soon realize that the horrors they were expecting to locate outside the ship are actually lingering within. “There was a malfunction during launch, and it wasn’t an accident,” Gretchen Mol’s character, Dr. Agatha Matheson says.
The trailer starts with The Night Shift’s Eoin Macken’s character telling his young daughter that he’s about to go “farther than anyone’s ever gone,” but at what cost? The trailer previews lots of screaming, lots of blood, a lot of confusion, and a whole lot of terror.
“Do not bring the Nightflyer back to Earth.”
Check out the full trailer below!
Nightflyers stars Gretchen Mol as Dr. Agatha Matheson, Eoin Macken as Karl D’Branin, David Ajala as Roy Eris, Sam Strike as Thale, Maya Eshet as Lommie, Angus Sampson as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith as Melantha Jhirl and Brían F. O’Byrne (“Million Dollar Baby”) as Auggie.
George R.R. Martin’s Nightflyers was originally published in 1980 by Analog Science Fiction and Facts magazine but was later expanded into a novella in 1983 before getting a big screen adaption in 1987. The SyFy series was created for television by Martin and Jeff Buhler (Eloise).
What do you think of the trailer? Are you ready for a new series from Martin or would you rather he finish that next Game of Thrones book? Let us know!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
