THE PERIPHERAL TRAILER
FOR AMAZON'S NEW SERIES
A new trailer has been released this weekend for Amazon Prime Video's new sf series THE PERIPHERAL which arrives October 21st! Chloe Moretz leads the show as Flynne Fisher who lives in the rural American
South, working at the
local 3D printing shop, while earning much needed extra money playing VR
games for rich people. When she puts on a headset one night, she
suddenly finds herself in a future London, a city that is alluringly
different from her own hardscrabble life and is elegant and intriguing.
She starts to understand that this isn’t a virtual reality game; rather,
it’s reality, and it’s unlike any game she’s ever played. Seventy
years in the future, someone in London has managed to unlock a portal
to Flynne’s realm. London is hazardous in addition to being
tremendously alluring. Her presence here unleashes evil forces out to
eliminate Flynne and her family in her home world as she investigates
who linked both worlds and for what reason. Wilf Netherton (Gary Carr) lives in
London, seventy some years later, on the
far side of decades of slow motion apocalypse. Things are pretty good
now, for the haves, and there aren’t many have-nots left. Wilf, a high
powered publicist and celebrity minder, fancies himself a romantic
misfit, in a society where reaching into the past is just another hobby.
Flynne's brother Burton (Jack Raynor) has been moonlighting online, secretly working security in some
game prototype, a virtual world that looks vaguely like London, but a
lot weirder. He’s got Flynne taking over shifts, promised her the game’s
not a shooter. Still, the crime she witnesses there is plenty bad.
Flynne and Wilf are about to meet one another. Her world will be altered
utterly, irrevocably, and Wilf’s, for all its decadence and power, will
learn that some of these third-world types from the past can be badass.
