Peacock launched a live-action Twisted Steel trailer as we speak that gives a a lot clearer glimpse of the upcoming collection than its teaser from earlier this 12 months. Set to the beat of DMX’s “Occasion Up (Up In Right here),” the campy clip has high-speed chases, weapons and carjackings together with ample wisecracks and one maniacal clown — all the things you’d count on from a live-action adaptation of the over-the-top franchise.
The 2-minute trailer begins with star Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and The Winter Soldier) setting the tone as protagonist John Doe. “20 years in the past, the world fell to shit,” he explains. “Cities put up partitions to guard themselves and threw the criminals out so they might combat over what was left. However there are humble motherfuckers like me delivering cargo from one walled metropolis to a different. That’s the place the vehicles and weapons come in.” The collection, which Peacock describes as a “high-octane motion comedy,” seems to have a self-aware tone that relishes in the sport’s extravagance with understanding winks to the viewers (metaphorical or in any other case). Suppose Deadpool-style humor in a Mad Max post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Along with Mackie, the collection stars Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn 9-9) as a carjacking outlaw who hitches a experience with Mackie’s Doe at gunpoint. We additionally get a peek at Neve Campbell as Raven, who guarantees Doe an important reward to ship a bundle, Thomas Haden Church (Sideways) as Agent Stone and wrestler Samoa Joe (performing motion) and Will Arnett (voice) because the killer clown Candy Tooth. The collection is written and developed by Michael Jonathan Smith.
Twisted Steel will embody ten half-hour episodes. It premieres on July twenty seventh, streaming completely on Peacock.
