Everybody is Already Dead in New Trailer for Syfy's 12 Monkeys
"It's never been about 'if.' It's always been 'when.'"
Based on Terry Gilliam's acclaimed film of the same name, the upcoming time travel head-scratcher 12 Monkeys follows virologist Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) as she is approached by a man named Cole (Aaron Standford) who claims to be from the future, in which most of humanity has been wiped out by a devastating plague. He then draws her into a mission to stop the plague from ever happening, by killing the man who eventually creates it.
We saw an advance screening of the 12 Monkeys pilot, and it wildly exceeded expectations. Granted, we didn't have very high expectations for it, considering that it's airing on Syfy, but so far its quality is much more comparable to Battlestar Galactica or Stargate Atlantis than Sharknado.
12 Monkeys premieres on SyFy on January 16, 2015.
