Ridley Scott is an all-timer. His films are all great in their own ways. From Alien to Gladiator to Hannibal his vision is always resolute and mesmerizing. His latest, Raised by Wolves looks like more of that same coolness.
Raised by Wolves was created with the intention of airing it on TNT, however it now will become part of the HBO Max’s exclusive lineup. In addition to producing the series, Scott will actually direct a few episodes.
The synopsis for Raised by Wolves goes like this:
Mother was programmed to protect everyone after Earth had been destroyed. When the big bad wolf shows up, she is the one we must trust.
The trailer begins in a bleak future where mankind has been basically wiped from the earth. Mother, pulls babies from jelly and raises them as her own in order to seemingly repopulate the world. The trailer is all fine and good until about halfway through where it becomes amazingly, cool and completely visionary. It ends on the implication that Mother might be the villain… or not.
I’m all about this trailer. It has the same color pallet and aesthetics as Scott’s Prometheus in a lot of ways. In fact Mother, bleeds the same way certain androids did in the Alien franchise. Which makes me raise an eyebrow to the possibilities of a a connected universe. Whatever the case is, we don’t have long to wait. Raised by Wolves lands on HBO Max beginning September 3.
