‘Station Eleven’ Trailer Dives Into The Aftermath Of A Global Pandemic
On December 16th the first three episodes of ‘Station Eleven’ will be available on HBO Max.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Station Eleven is a film version of Emily St. John Mandel’s 2014 novel of the same name, which spans numerous generations and recounts the narrative of different survivors striving to reconstruct civilization in the aftermath of a global epidemic.
Jeevan and Kirsten, represented by Himesh Patel and Matilda Lawler, meet outside a screening of King Lear, in which the principal actor, Arthur Leander (Gael Garca Bernal), has a heart attack. Despite his paramedic training, Jeevan is unable to save him. Following the performance, he tries to console Kirsten, one of the child actresses in the production.
The trailer then switches to a scene of the world collapsing as a virus known as the flu spreads over the globe, eventually becoming a global pandemic.
Kirsten, played by Mackenzie Davis, is now a member of the Travelling Symphony, a traveling troupe of musicians and actresses. The party is welcomed to the “Museum of Civilization” in the trailer, where they are cautioned about someone known as “The Prophet.”
The trailer bounces back and forth in time, from the early days of the epidemic to 20 years later, culminating in a heartbreaking dialogue between Jeevan and Kirsten about all the individuals they’ve seen during the end of the world, even in its early stages.
The series will also include Daniel Zovatto, David Wilmot, Philippine Velge, Nabhaan Rizwan, and Lori Petty, as well as the previously mentioned Bernal and Danielle Deadwyler as recurring roles.
The first three episodes of Station Eleven will premiere on HBO Max on December 16th. Every Thursday, two more episodes will air, building up to the final episode on January 13.
