We’ve told you about Netflix’s upcoming creepy show Dark before, but back in those (uh oh, pun incoming) dark days, we did not have a proper full-length trailer to show you. Back then, we simply had a ‘teaser’, and what the hell are we supposed to do with one of them? What you want, and need, is a large-up, two-minute-thirteen-second preview - a real trailer for a real boy. And we’ve got it for you.
I don’t know about you, but that’s got me a bit excited. Looks spooky, scary, science-fictiony and, erm, mystery-ey. Good stuff.
The show, according to Neflix, is: “A family saga with a supernatural twist, set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families.
“In ten, hour-long episodes, the story takes on a supernatural twist that ties back to the same town in 1986.”
So: small town, missing children, death, the supernatural, a retro time-setting - sounds a lot like everyone’s favourite ‘80s-set spook-a-thon, Stranger Things. Thankfully, you’ve not got to wait long before you can get your fix of quality episodic television, as it hits Netflix on 1 December.
People are already getting excited at the possibility Dark could be the streaming platform’s next big hit.
Wow, sounds really promising. Your first native content in German? Exciting to see this content strategy of yours ✌️— ⭕ Bernie Hauser (@yesitsBernie) November 9, 2017
Stranger Things with a time travel element. I will watch it.— Frances Jarvis (@FrancesJarvis20) November 9, 2017
Better read a book in the interim though, it’s got those funny ‘subtitle’ things at the bottom of the screen - can’t go into it rusty. Reading and watching at the same time? Who’d have thought it?
