Dinosaurs and deadly insects are some of the things which threaten a colony that travels back 85 million years.
Gearing up for the fall premiere of "Terra Nova", FOX has debuted three new posters for the sci-fi drama series. Instead of capturing the scenes, the one-sheets give fake warnings about some dangerous creatures like a slasher and deadly insects which likely await a colony which is transported back 85 millions years on the show.
Following a family who embarks on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a massive experiment to save the human race, "Terra Nova" indeed has dinosaurs. But the creatures will be different from those which have been seen in dinosaur films since the creative team is drawing on earlier fossils for their character designs.
"We have dinosaurs we know existed from the fossil record, but what's fun is that you get to make up your own dinosaurs," showrunner Brannon Braga said. Joe Earley, FOX President of marketing, chimed in, "The T-Rex we all know and grew up with may not be correct. ... We don't want to market with the wrong dinosaurs."
Not only costing a lot of money, "Terra Nova" also requires a hard work on the visual effects. "The world of Terra Nova is visually stunning on multiple levels, and effects play an enormous part," executive producer Rene Echevarria said earlier this year when explaining why the premiere date was pushed back from May to fall.
With Steven Spielberg also serving as executive producer, "Terra Nova" is scheduled to be debuted on Monday, September 26. Jason O'Mara, Allison Miller, Stephen Lang and Shelley Conn are among the regular cast.
