Syfy has released the first 12 Monkeys TV show trailer for its adaptation of director Terry Gilliam’s revered 1995 film of the same name.  The story follows a time traveler (Aaron Stanford of X2 fame) from a post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day with a mission to destroy the source of a deadly plague that will one day annihilate the human race.  The series doesn’t appear to retain the offbeat nature of the film—only Gilliam can pull off that kind of crazy—and instead looks to be more of a straightforward time-travel thriller, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  There’s a solid amount of mythology build-up in this trailer and Zeljko Ivanek can chew scenery like few others.  So far, this doesn’t look terrible.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The series also stars Kirk Acevedo, Amanda Schull, and Noah Bean12 Monkeys debuts on Syfy in January 2015.

Here’s the official synopsis for 12 Monkeys:

12 Monkeys, starring Aaron Stanford (NikitaX-Men: The Last Stand, X2), Amanda Schull (SuitsPretty Little Liars), Noah Bean (NikitaDamages) and Kirk Acevedo (Fringe), follows the journey of a time traveler (Stanford) from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race.

    Looks cheap.

    Aside from a few familiar actors, to me this looked exactly like a trailer for a fan film shot on a $5000 budget.

      But you know, if this actually was a fan film web series shot on a $5,000 budget, that would be impressive!

      With a $150 software as HitFilm or Adobe After Effects including pack of Special Effects called Action Essentials (gun fire, smoke, explosions, blood hits, bullet hits and etc).

      And a cannon HD photo camera with video mode. You can achieve the same results for $1000.

      It is cheap as fuck. Just like Dominion.

      This comment is relevant for almost any trailer/series lately.
