J.J. Abrams’ Alcatraz – Serien-Trailer


(Youtube Direktalcatraz, via io9)

Erster Trailer zu J.J. Abrams neuer Serie „Alcatraz“, einem Zeitreise-Gefängnis-Dingsbums. Hier der etwas zu lang geratene Plot:

When San Francisco Police Department DET. REBECCA MADSEN (Sarah Jones, “Sons of Anarchy”) is assigned to a grisly homicide case, a fingerprint leads her to a shocking suspect: JACK SYLVANE (guest star Jeffrey Pierce, “The Nine”), a former Alcatraz inmate who died decades ago. Given her family history – both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, RAY ARCHER (Robert Forster, “Jackie Brown”), were guards at the prison – Madsen’s interest is immediately piqued, and once the enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent EMERSON HAUSER (Sam Neill, “Jurassic Park”) tries to impede her investigation, she’s doggedly committed.

Madsen turns to Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast, DR. DIEGO “DOC” SOTO (Jorge Garcia, “Lost”), to piece together the inexplicable sequence of events. The twosome discovers that Sylvane is not only alive, but he’s loose on the streets of San Francisco, leaving bodies in his wake. And strangely, he hasn’t aged a day since he was in Alcatraz, when the prison was ruled by the iron-fisted WARDEN EDWIN JAMES (Jonny Coyne, “Undercovers”) and the merciless ASSOCIATE WARDEN E.B. TILLER (Jason Butler Harner, “The Changeling”). Madsen and Soto reluctantly team with Agent Hauser and his technician, LUCY BANERJEE (Parminder Nagra, “ER”), to stop Sylvane’s vengeful killing spree.

By delving into Alcatraz history, government cover-ups and Rebecca’s own heritage, the team will ultimately discover that Sylvane is only a small part of a much larger, more sinister present-day threat. For while he may be the first, it quickly becomes clear that Sylvane won’t be the last prisoner to reappear from Alcatraz. Through the course of the investigation, Madsen and Soto will learn that Agent Hauser has known about the prison’s secret history and has been awaiting the prisoners’ return. Soto will witness his life’s work – the history of Alcatraz – come alive. Madsen will be forced to keep her supportive San Francisco cop fiancé, JIMMY DICKENS (Santiago Cabrera, “Heroes”), at arm’s length from the highly classified assignment as she sees everything she thought she knew about her family’s past shattered, all while fighting to keep the country safe from history’s most dangerous criminals.

    Eine Mystery-Serie von J.J. Abrams über eine geheimnisvolle (Gefängnis-)Insel? Einerseits möchte ich mich (vor)freuen, andererseits heisst es doch “Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice…”

    Man, hat mich dieser Konzepttrailer abgetörnt, schon wieder alles relevante verraten, den Piloten kann man sich komplett sparen. Gibt es jetzt pro Folge einen neuen Gefangenen? Gefangene aus der Vergangenheit für Verbrechen in die Zukunft holen, ja, nett. Aber irgendwie rieche ich mehr Kalkül als gutes Drehbuch.

    Sieht mir mal wieder zu geleckt aus.

  5. der alte Sack

    Sam Neil tut mir echt leid, seid er nicht mehr bei Jurassic-Park das Musical und Jurassic-Park Part 8 (Zeitreise aus der Zukunft zu den Sauriern um dort eine Stadt aufzubauen) mitmachen darf, nimmt er jedes Gebot an, wie Klaus Kinski in seinen besten zeiten. Nur Klaus war 100 mal besser als all die anderen.

    Und ein Dicker macht auch mit wie bei Lost? Ist das Nicht sogar Lost für Bewährungshelfer? Wahnsinn. Ich sollte anfangen Drehbücher zu schreiben, vielleicht kriege ich für meinen Hirnmüll auch ein paar Kröten…?

    Unglaublich wie viel Zynismus hier aus den Kommentaren trieft. Ich finde die Serie sieht zumindest unterhaltsam aus… Ich mochte aber auch Lost, also erhängt mich doch.

  7. Andi

    Im Usenet hat jemand die Serie als “Prison Lost The 4400 Fringe Files” beschrieben, und ich glaube das trifft es exakt.

  8. Dominik

    J.J. hat für mich seit CLoverfield verloren.. Ich kann ihn nicht mehr wirklich ernst nehmen ..

    Ich dachte auch sofort an “Lost im Frauenknast” oder so.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
