Sean Penn heads to Mars in teaser trailer for Hulu's The First

"Every human being who ever was, lived out their lives…on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam," says Sean Penn's character of Tom Hagerty, quoting Carl Sagan. It's a powerful quote, even in its abbreviated form, and it certainly sets the tone in the cryptic teaser trailer for The First, an upcoming Hulu series which will follow a group of scientists and astronauts as they take their first steps towards Mars. Although the teaser doesn't show us much, it does offer up some impressive visuals and a peek at the great cast, which, in addition to Sean Penn, includes Natascha McElhone, LisaGay Hamilton, Hannah Ware, Keiko Agena, Rey Lucas, James Ransone, Anna Jacoby-Heron, Brian Lee Franklin, Oded Fehr, and Bill Camp. I don't know about you, but I'll certainly be checking the series out.

The official synopsis for The First:

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.

All eight-episodes of The First will debut on Hulu on September 14, 2018.
