New Extended Trailer for Fox’s Terra Nova

We’ve already seen plenty from Fox’s much-hyped Steven Spielberg-produced “Terra Nova”, but honestly, the chances of this thing going past its first season is pretty much up in the air. It looks like, because it is, an incredibly expensive show to produce, so the ratings better be stellar or Fox might nip this show in the bud pretty fast. Anyways, check out the latest, full-length trailer for “Terra Nova”. This, curiously, is Fox’s second high-concept time-travel show for the upcoming season, the other being the J.J. Abrams-produced “Alcatraz”.

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. JIM SHANNON (Jason O’Mara), a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family through this new world of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. Jim’s wife, ELISABETH SHANNON (Shelley Conn), is a trauma surgeon and the newest addition to TERRA NOVA’s medical team. JOSH SHANNON (Landon Liboiron) is their 17-year-old son who is angry to leave life as he knows it behind; upon arriving at the settlement, he finds himself instantly drawn to the beautiful and rule-breaking SKYE (Allison Miller). MADDY SHANNON (Naomi Scott), Josh’s endearingly awkward 15-year-old sister, hopes TERRA NOVA will give her a new chance to reinvent herself. Although Elisabeth’s medical training secured the family a spot on the pilgrimage, a secret involving their five-year-old daughter, ZOE (Alana Mansour), soon endangers their place in this utopia.

Upon the Shannon’s arrival, they are introduced to COMMANDER NATHANIEL TAYLOR (Stephen Lang), the charismatic and heroic first pioneer and leader of the settlement. Taylor, along with his right-hand man, GUZMAN (Mido Hamada), warn the travelers that while Terra Nova is a place of new opportunities and fresh beginnings, all is not as idyllic as it initially appears. Along with blue skies, towering waterfalls and lush vegetation, the surrounding terrain is teeming with danger – and not just of the man-eating dinosaur variety. There is also a splinter colony of renegades led by the battle-hardened MIRA (Christine Adams), who is vehemently opposed to Taylor and his leadership.

Even more threatening than what lies outside the protective walls of the colony is the chilling possibility that something sinister is happening inside Terra Nova. 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.

Look for it to premiere on Fox in the Fall of this year.

    Terra means “Love”…. doesn’t look like there is much love in this movie. Dinosaurs….BIG YAWN. I hope this TV show fails, because it is unimaginative and boring. I think we are in desperate need of NEW WRITERS for TV shows, we don’t need 3D, or BIG dinosaurs, we need O-R-I-G-I-N-A-L-I-T-Y!!!!!!
