FOX is now showing off images to the general public and a trailer to the press on its new $4 million dollar-per-episode time-traveling dinosaur show: Terra Nova.
FOX as a shit track record with sci-fi shows, I am honestly surprised Fringe is not cancelled! Terra Nova better be a big hit for FOX to shell out the cash for this show...after all, they pasted on Virtuality!
The basic plot is that Earth is dying, and in 2149, they develop the technology to open a time portal to the ancient past...specifically dinosaur time. The Shannon family is one of the new batch settlers to enter the colony site, to see if mankind can restart civilization of the other side of the portal.
Stephen Lang plays the first human to pass through the portal, and he now leads the colony. No, word on if the portal is one-way....
This plot remains me of Bardbury's A Sound of Thunder...and the Bones of the Earth coupled with Avatar and Earth-2. A Sound of Thunder was rumored to get a big-screen treatment...is Terra Nova that treatment?
Here are some of the current images:
