Sci-fi fans who miss the Mass Effect video games are in luck. The new trailer for Netflix’s Lost In Space, a gritty reboot of the 1960s television series, looks almost exactly like a live-action version of BioWare’s epic trilogy. (The less said about Mass Effect: Andromeda the better.)

On Tuesday, Netflix released the first full trailer for Lost In Space, a lavish ten-episode reimagining of the 1960s family drama. True to the original, the show follows a family of space explorers, the Robinsons, who — well, get lost in space. But unlike the original, the Netflix version is more serious in tone, while the original was like a family-centric spin on Star Trek.

Younger audiences who probably never watched Lost In Space, including the “gritty” 1998 movie with William Hurt and Matt LeBlanc, may be intrigued with Lost In Space due to its visual similarities to the Mass Effect games. In the trailer, the Robinson’s vehicles resemble the Mako, the surface terrain vehicle that was awful to drive, while the Robot (yes, he’s literally named “Robot”) looks like the Geth. Also, Robot’s deep, robotic voice sounds an awful like Sovereign.

Visual similarities aside, Lost In Space is still its own thing. By that we mean it still looks like a lot of other gritty sci-fi reboots, from J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek to modern Doctor Who. That also means that, yes, the show’s iconic catchphrase of “Danger, Will Robinson” gets a dramatic beat in the trailer. But the show looks delightfully pulpy, with a real costume for Robot instead of making him a CGI puppet. The Robinsons’ space suits are also colorful instead of muted grays, blacks, and dark steel blues.

Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall, who is signed on to helm the new Hellboy, is the director for several episodes of Lost In Space. The reboot stars Molly Parker (House of Cards), Toby Stephens, Ignacio Serricchio, Mina Sundwall, and Max Jenkins as Will Robinson. Parker Posey also stars as Dr. Smith, who has been changed from a male character into a female for the reboot.

Lost In Space will premiere April 13 on Netflix.

There are many lists on the internet that rank the greatest fight scenes, or the most impressive stunts pulled off by living human beings. This list is not like any of those. The following items listed below are, with some room for debate, the most influential stunts and action sequences in cinema, the ones that raised the bar and define what action movies looks like today.

A mythical new weapon has come to the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale in the form of the Infinity Blade from the video game series of the same name, and it just made one place on the map the most trafficked location of all.

Following up on a Monday teaser, Epic Games introduced a sword called the Infinity Blade to Fortnite Season 7 and it’s so much more than another pickaxe like some players thought. The Fortnite version 7.01 patch notes outline everything to know about this new weapon, and it’s unlike anything else we’ve seen before in the game. In fact, the closest thing to the Infinity Blade is the Infinity Gauntlet that transformed players into Thanos for the Infinity War crossover in April. (Both items are classified as “Mythic.”)

When Nintendo announced that every fighter in Smash Bros. history would be playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans everywhere probably didn’t consider how long it would take to actually obtain all 70-plus fighters. Thankfully, it doesn’t take that long to begin smashing with your favorite mains. You will, however, need to put in some effort.

If, for some reason, you’re the type of person who skips special episodes or doesn’t like holiday episodes (hey, we won’t judge), you’re still going to want to tune in to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale on Friday, December 14. It may not be an official part of Season 1, but it could have a huge impact on the plot of Season 2.

Something happened to the survivors in the six years between Rick’s “death” and Judith saving Magna’s group on The Walking Dead Season 9, and as a result, the communities are divided. Michonne’s not exactly welcomed at the Hilltop with open arms, but could the introduction of the Whisperers and a major death in the midseason finale be what brings everyone back together?
