Teaser trailer for Hulu’s ‘The First’ starring Sean Penn from ‘House of Cards’ creator Beau Willimon

Hulu has released the first teaser for the original drama series The First from House of Cards creator Beau Willimon and starring Academy Award winner Sean Penn. House of Cards stars Penn’s ex-wife Robin Wright.

Sean Penn leads an ensemble cast in this near-future drama about a crew of astronauts attempting to become the first humans on Mars. Under the direction of visionary aerospace magnate Laz Ingram (Natascha McElhone), the crew contends with peril and personal sacrifice as they undertake the greatest pioneering feat in human history. The look and feel of this first teaser is evocative of Terrence Malick if he had directed Arrival or The Martian.

The First also stars LisaGay Hamilton, Hannah Ware, Keiko Agena,  Rey Lucas, James Ransone, Anna Jacoby-Heron, Brian Lee Franklin and Oded Fehr. Executive Producers include creator and showrunner Beau Willimon and Jordan Tappis for Westward Productions.

Hulu will release all eight episodes of The First on Friday, September 14th. Here is your first look.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
