Not all exclusive island trips are worth dying for.
In Netflix’s upcoming seven-episode miniseries called I-Land, 10 people wake up to find themselves on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there. The strangers must band together to find their way back home — or die trying.
Netflix released the first trailer for I-Land Tuesday. Initially it feels like a promo until we see the series’ horror side: sharks, weapons, screams, mutilated hands, “HELP” written in the sand. The characters’ fun island activities are captured on multiple screens for what looks to be a reality TV show or maybe something more messed up. This is all very Lost meets Battle Royale.
“Faced with the I-Land’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves — or die as their worst ones,” states the show synopsis.
The cast of I-Land includes Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns), Natalie Martinez ( ), Michelle Veintimilla ( ), Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike), Sibylla Deen (The Last Ship), Kyle Schmid (Being Human), Ronald Peet (Defectives), Kota Eberhardt ( ), Anthony Lee Medina (Flesh and Bone) and Gilles Geary (Spirit Warriors).
I-Land sails onto Netflix Sept. 12.
