All the way back in October, Netflix revealed our first look at Lockwood & Co., a new supernatural adventure series from Attack the Block director Joe Cornish. What we saw during that teaser looked intriguing, and today - in anticipation of the series finally landing on Netflix later this month - we've been given a far more substantial, even better trailer to gawk at.
Let's take a look...
From the looks of things, Lockwood & Co. will find the sweet spot between the Ghostbusters franchise and the Duffer Brothers' Stranger Things. It also appears to have quite a bit of scale going for it (more so than we might have expected after catching that first teaser trailer, anyway), not to mention a bit of the same madcap magic that worked so well for Attack the Block. We're intrigued!
Here's an official plot synopsis, for your records:
“In a world plagued by ghosts, where giant corporations employ psychic teens to battle the supernatural, only one company operates without adult supervision, and its name is Lockwood & Co. Run by Anthony Lockwood, a rebellious young entrepreneur haunted by his mysterious past, his brilliant but eccentric sidekick George and a newly arrived, supremely gifted girl called Lucy, this renegade trio are about to unravel a terrifying mystery that will change the course of history.”
Lockwood & Co. stars (deep breath) Ruby Stokes, Cameron Chapman, Ali Hadji-Heshmati, Ivanno Jeremiah, Jack Bandeira, Luke Treadaway, Morven Christie, Hayley Konadu, Rhianna Dorris, and Paddy Holland. We're looking forward to finding out what sort of tricks it has up its sleeve when it hits Netflix on January 27th.
