We just got our first look at Steven Spielberg’s Terra Nova when some photos from the pilot surfaced last week. Now we have high-resolutions versions of those photos along with some new pictures which include much better-looking series logo (above), our first look at Avatar star Stephen Lang as Commander Nathaniel Taylor, and some great promo images featuring the entire cast. Looking at the sheer scale of this series and the story, this could either be a mind-blowing piece of television or one colossal failure. I’m hoping for the former. We’ll find out in May since Fox just announced the premiere dates for the two-night sneak preview event. Check out all the photos after the jump.
Here’s the synopsis:
The series centers on the Shannon family as they join the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to TERRA NOVA, the first colony established in this beautiful yet forbidding land led by its founder COMMANDER NATHANIEL TAYLOR (Stephen Lang, Avatar. JIM SHANNON (Jason O’Mara, “Life on Mars”), a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family – wife ELISABETH (Shelley Conn, “Mistresses”); and children JOSH (Landon Liboiron, “Degrassi: The Next Generation”), MADDY (Naomi Scott, “Life Bites”) and ZOE (newcomer Alana Mansour) – through this new land of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. In addition to blue skies, towering waterfalls and lush vegetation, TERRA NOVA offers new opportunities and fresh beginnings to its recent arrivals, but the Shannons have brought with them a familial secret that may threaten their citizenship in this utopia. These adventurers soon discover that this healthy, vibrant world is not as idyllic as it initially appears. The areas surrounding TERRA NOVA are teeming with danger – and not just of the man-eating dinosaur variety. The Shannons will come to suspect that not everyone on this mission has the same idea of how to best save mankind; in fact, there may be forces intent on destroying this new world before it even begins.
