Movies based on Video games are slowly increasing their number as HBO is about to drop the first episode of The Last of Us on January 15th.
From Uncharted to Resident Evil, the franchise based on video games is slowly spreading its wings as it will be joined by The Last of Us.
Watch the trailer
This is based on the PlayStation game which came out in 2013 and became a sensation after selling 20 million copies.
A post-apocalyptic world is something that has always captivated us with its imagination, and The Last of Us will not be an exception in that case.
The Cast and the Story
This is a journey of the survivors, mainly focusing on two of them. Joel, with his past full of grief, will be played by Pedro Pascal.
The character of Ellie will be played by Bella Ramsey who will be nothing but encapsulating in the role.
It will feature Gabriel Luna as Joel’s younger brother Tommy, Merle Dandridge as resistance leader Marlene, and Anna Torv as Joel’s smuggler partner Tess.
The nine-episode television series will initially follow the first game. This suggests that it is safe to anticipate that the narrative of the acclaimed video game will be followed in the story. The year 2030 is the setting. Joel, a smuggler with a hellish past, frees Ellie from a quarantine area so they can travel. As they move from east to west, they must rely on one another to survive. It’s a compelling and heartbreaking narrative, so prepare yourself.
A story of dependence, a binding. It has monsters, devils, and a captivating storyline. And as high regard we have for HBO, we can hope it won’t disappoint us.
