THE LAST OF US: Joel And Ellie Face A Clicker In Bleak First Trailer For HBO Adaptation

Following some brief shots in a montage video earlier this year, HBO has finally debuted a full trailer for its upcoming adaptation of Naughty Dog's survival horror game, The Last of Us.

When you're lost in the darkness, look for the light.

To mark #TLOUDay, HBO (via GameFragger.com) has shared an unnerving first trailer for its upcoming adaptation of Naughty Dog's acclaimed survival horror video game, The Last of Us.

The footage spotlights main characters Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) as they make their way across a city ravaged by a virus which turns people into murderous, zombie-like creatures. We also catch glimpses of supporting players Tommy (Gabriel Luna), Tess (Anna Torv), Marlene (Merle Dandridge) Bill (Nick Offerman) and Nico Parker as Joel's daughter Sarah.

It's a very promising first look, and gamers should appreciate an intense tease of a scene featuring Ellie and Joel being as quite as possible in order to avoid attracting the attention of a dreaded Clicker!

The Last of Us is set 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed and centers on the relationship between Joel, a smuggler in this new world, and Ellie, a teenager who may be key to a cure for a deadly pandemic. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle the 14-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and the game's creator Neil Druckmann are writing and executive producing the show. The first season will adapt the events of the original game, but is also expected to include elements of the sequel. Druckmann recently confirmed that the series will take some liberties with the story.

The first season will consist of 10 episodes and will air sometime next year, though no official premiere date has been announced.
