The worst monsters are the ones we create. Netflix has released the main Trailer for their epic Fantasy Series The Witcher, be with us next month. On first impressions are we looking at the series that will fill that Game Of Thrones void?
We’ve been teased for over a year now but now we’re only weeks away from the series launch. The series is on books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski which have been a popular video game for a while. Video game adaptations haven’t had a great record especially on the big screen, could that be changing soon?
Henry Cavill Geralt the monster hunter the books are based around. A character struggling to find his place in the world. His path of destiny brings him to a powerful sorceress and young princess, three tread the lands together.
If you are a fan of the games and books the new trailer does tease some iconic scenes, especially the bathtub scene. If it can deliver the same success as GoT, the world will be it’s oyster!
