Netflix has released the official trailer for the upcoming "Lost in Space" remake, in which Toby Stephens (Black Sails) and Molly Parker (Deadwood) star as space-traveling scientists John and Maureen Robinson who, after a mishap, get marooned on a strange and dangerous planet with their three children. Kid actor Maxwell Jenkins, from Netflix's "Sense8," is playing John and Maureen's youngest child, Will Robinson. He's a boy who befriends a mysterious alien robot.

Based on the classic 1965 sci-fi show by legendary television producer/filmmaker Irwin Allen (Land of the Giants, The Poseidon Adventure), the new Netflix original series is written and executive produced by the screenwriting team of Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold, The Last Witch Hunter, Gods of Egypt).

Also serving as an executive producer on the series and the director of the pilot episode is genre filmmaker Neil Marshall, whose credits include the cult horror films "The Descent" and "Dog Soldiers," but recently made a name for himself for his television work, directing several notable episodes of "Game of Thrones," "Black Sails," and "Westworld." Marshall is also directing the upcoming "Hellboy" reboot.

The cast of the new 10-episode series also includes Taylor Russell (Falling Skies), Mina Sundwall (#Horror), Ignacio Serricchio (Bones, The Young and the Restless) and Raza Jaffrey (Homeland, Code Black).

Meanwhile, Parker Posey (Waiting for Guffman, Superman Returns), who in a gender flip, is taking on the iconic role of Dr. Smith, a scheming villainous character who in the '60s series was originally played by legendary character actor Jonathan Harris.

"Lost in Space" is scheduled to premiere on Friday, April 13th on Netflix.

synopsis:
Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family (Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins, Taylor Russell, Mina Sundwall) is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, light-years from their original destination. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith (Parker Posey) is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue-collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
