    The stunning ‘The Last of Us’ trailer puts the spotlight on Joel and Ellie’s relationship

    If waiting to watch HBO’s adaptation of The last of us wasn’t long enough, the network shared a new trailer for the upcoming series ahead of its Jan. 15 release date. The clip is nearly two and a half minutes long and offers our best look yet at the Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) production. And for those who may have been worried that the series would get too close to Naughty Dog’s source material, it shows that the adaptation creators weren’t afraid to add something new to the franchise.

    That can be seen early on when there’s a short scene where Ellie pretends to be a clicker. The exchange that follows is one of the few light-hearted moments in the trailer. Later in the clip, eagle-eyed fans will see Ashley Johnson, the actor who voiced Ellie in the video games.

    If you are unfamiliar with The last of us, the trailer serves as a good overview of the first game’s story. At the center of the story are Joel and Ellie, played by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the upcoming HBO series. Joel must guide Ellie through a post-apocalyptic version of the US in hopes that she may hold the key to protecting the rest of the world’s population from a fungal infection that turns its victims into aggressive, zombie-like creatures known as the Infected .

    Of all the marketing materials HBO shared to promote The last of us, it is clear that the network has high hopes for the series. Footage from the show capped off a sizzle reel that HBO uploaded earlier this year to hype its 2023 slate.
