Netflix reveals trailers for a new apocalyptic series and a romantic time travel movie.
Netflix has surprised us recently with the amount of original content it has been dropping on its service. What has especially made me take notice is the films that have been appearing out of nowhere. Today, Netflix has unveiled some more fresh content.
The first of these is a romantic comedy with a time travel twist entitled When We First Met. Noah (Adam Devine) has a perfect first night when he meets Avery at a party (Alexandra Daddario). He falls in love with her but waits that little bit too long to confess his feelings for her and ends up in the friends’ zone.
However, Noah discovers a way to travel back in time and try again and again and again. Yes, this does sound very much like Groundhog Day but I’m hoping there’s something more that isn’t being revealed by the trailer.
When We First Met will debut on Netflix on the 9th February.
An apocalyptic survival story, The Rain, is a co-production between Netflix and Denmark. The basic premise is that the rain is helping to spread a deadly virus that has wiped out most of the population of Scandinavia.
Here is the official Synopsis.
The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings, join a group of young survivors set out to find out whether a new world has begun somewhere else. They all hope that the siblings’ father is somewhere out there with answers.
Set free from the rules of civilized society, each of the young members of the group has the freedom to be who they want to be, but they all struggle with their inner selves, and the fact that even in a post-apocalyptic world there’s love, jealousy, coming of age, and every problem they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world as they knew it.
There is no official date set for The Rain except for Spring 2018 which isn’t that far off really.
