An official teaser trailer has been released for Peacock’s upcoming Twisted Metal series and damn this show looks awesome.
Based on the violent vehicular combat video game series, the Twisted Metal show invites audiences to take part in a journey brimming with thrills and chaos.
Per the synopsis provided alongside the Twisted Metal teaser trailer:
“Twisted Metal, a half-hour live-action TV series based on the classic PlayStation game series, is a high-octane action comedy, based on an original take by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and written by Michael Jonathan Smith, about a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
“With the help of a badass axe-wielding car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.”
In its brief runtime, the trailer provides a look into the absurd chaos that is Twisted Metal‘s world. We get to briefly see Anthony Mackie’s character (who plays the lead role in the show), and there is also an appearance from the one and only Sweet Tooth.
You can check out the Twisted Metal teaser trailer for yourself below. The show will be arriving on Peacock later this year on July 27th.
Speaking of Twisted Metal, back in March, we wrote a feature naming the 10 most metal video games of all time. On that list, we happened to have highlighted Twisted Metal: Black; below you can read what we wrote about the game, but to check out the full feature, follow the link under the trailer.
“A post-apocalyptic world where people get in suped-up vehicles and blast each other with missiles? That’s metal AF. The Twisted Metal franchise has always made for an explosive experience of fun – and it’ll be really cool to check out the TV adaption once it is released. When it comes to the one game from the franchise that most stands out though, Twisted Metal: Black is the entry that captures the franchise’s brutal vibe and exhilarating play best.”
