An incredibly badass trailer has just been released for SyFy's Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome 2-hour pilot. This trailer was recently screened at WonderCon, and it it was cut in the style of the trailer for David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It even includes that great cover of "Immigrant Song," and it's more awesome. As a huge fan of the Battlestar Galactica series, I'm excited as hell to see this thing! The footage in the trailer actually gave me goosebumps. It looks so epically cool that it should be a feature film! This is going to be one hell of a hardcore sci-fi series. It looks incredibly ambitious. The new series will focus on the adventures of a young William Adama during the 10th year of the first Cylon war.
Here's the full synopsis:
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly find himself at odds with Coker (Ben Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.
Joining Pasqualino and Cotton in the cast is Lili Bordan, who will play Dr. Beka Kelly, a Ph.D. who worked for Graystone Industries that created the Cylon robots. Currently assigned to a secret military mission, Beka and Adama quickly establish a rapport.
