Aquaman Leads A Blind Dystopia
In addition to announcing a launch date for its new streaming service, Apple on Tuesday dropped a trailer for See, its upcoming drama starring Jason Momoa.
See is set in a distant future where humanity has adapted, learning how to survive, interact, hunt, and live without being able to see. This new way of life, however, is challenged when a set of twins is born with sight.
Here’s the trailer:
Here’s the synopsis:
“See is set in a distant future, after a deadly virus decimated humankind — and those who survived emerged blind. Momoa stars as Baba Voss, the father of twins born centuries later with the ability to see. With the help of spiritual leader Paris (played by Oscar nominee Alfre Woodard), Baba Voss must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who wants the twins destroyed.”
