We’re going out on a limb here and saying that not everything is as it seems on the new show Beacon 23. Call it a hunch. Call it intuition. But from the looks of this trailer, there’s some foul play afoot, and when something like that happens a space station far, far away from earthwe can’t help but love it.
Beacon 23 Stars game of Thrones symbol Lena Headey next to it If Beale Street could talk And Homecoming Stephen James. It is based on a book by Hugh Howey (he from silo Fame) and was created by two genre greats, Zak Penn (Ready, player oneThe Avengers) And Glen Mazzara (The walking dead). The film premieres November 12th on MGM+, an Amazon streaming service, and now has a mysterious first trailer.
That pretty much explains everything. Essentially, the show takes place on one of several beacons around the galaxy that exist to support intergalactic travelers. Each is controlled by advanced AI as well as a single, extremely capable human. This is James’ character. Headey’s character is a government agent who rightly cannot be trusted. However, it appears that this will be put to the test when other forces come into play.
The trailer for Beacon 23 looks super solid, but you get the strong feeling that it’s one of those shows that doesn’t get everything done in a single season. siloanother show based on Howey’s work is so and although that Beacon 23 The book seems to be a complete work, there’s so much going on in this trailer, one can only hope that Penn and Mazzara are going all out here. And then if the show is a hit and people like it, it continues. You would hate to watch those eight episodes, have a billion questions, and then never see them again.
We’ll soon find out how this works when the first two episodes of the eight-episode season arrive on MGM+ on November 12th at 9pm EST/PST.
