Pedro Pascal stars in The Last of Us and HBO just released the first footage of the new series ahead of the House of the Dragon premiere. The premium cable network ran a trailer with all their upcoming shows and featured a moment dedicated to the HBO original based on the video games developed by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation platforms.
The teaser shows Joel (Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) as they cross a snowy bridge with the latter’s voiceover saying, “Everybody I’ve cared for has either died or left me.”
“You have no idea what loss is,” Joel responds.
According to the logline, The Last of Us takes place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
