Update 03/11/16: Netflix have just graced us with the first full trailer for the upcoming series including its release date.
For the first time we get a proper glance at Count Olaf and the Baudelaire kids to get you even more excited for when the full series drops on Netflix on January 13 (which is a Friday, obviously).
Original article: So far, Netflix has been nailing the tone of children gothic noir tale A Series Of Unfortunate Events, and their latest teaser for the series adaptation.
The teaser, shared by Netflix's YouTube channel shows troubled writer-photographer Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) walking down the movie's ghostly set, lamenting the eight-episode show’s dismal production and warning viewers to turn away and not watch the movie - using the same reverse psychology of the internationally best-selling novels. Earlier this year it was confirmed that the series cast Neil Patrick Harris as the Baudelaire orphans’ nasty uncle Count Olaf, whose sinister voice makes a background appearance in the clip.
While the revival has left fans anxious with anticipation, speaking in a statement shared by Netflix about the upcoming series, Lemony Snicket was his usual pessimist self, saying:
“I can’t believe it. After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books.”
A Series Of Unfortunate Events will premiere on Friday January 13, 2017 - Friday 13, get it? - on Netflix.
