Neil Patrick Harris steals the show in the full Unfortunate Events trailer
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events chronicles the turbulent lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire after their parents’ untimely death in a fire. A careless oversight initially places the children in the custody of a distant relative named Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris), a mysterious and devious figure who is seeking fortune by way of stealing their inheritance. After his elaborate plans are foiled and his evil intentions are revealed, Count Olaf employs a variety of outlandish disguises to situate himself in the children’s path, causing mayhem for the Baudelaire’s and their subsequent guardians. As the children manage to evade Count Olaf’s scheming attempts to steal their fortune, they pick up clues along the way about their parents’ past. You can see as much in the official trailer below!
I thought the film, LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, was okay, if only feeling like Tim Burton-lite. I've been a little skeptical of this TV show because let's face it; Jim Carrey is a hard act to follow. Still, Neil Patrick Harris looks like he's having fun, and I'm glad they included more of his humor in the trailer above. At the very least, this should give us something interesting to do in the month of January, when some of the "lesser" movies of the year hit cinemas.
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events will hit Netflix on January 13th.
