Showtime has released a better-looking, full-length official trailer for the upcoming sci-fi series The Man Who Fell To Earth.
The new series is a modern update on the iconic 1976 sci-fi film that starred David Bowie, also titled The Man Who Fell To Earth.
They’re re-adapting the novel that the film was based on, written by Walter Tevis and first published in 1963.
The show centers on a humanoid alien who crash-lands on Earth while trying to find a water source for his planet. The alien is soon harassed, abused, and detained by humans.
Here’s the trailer:
Showtime’s blurb reads:
