The Epic, First Official Trailer For Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos

Yesterday Giz took a look at ‘The New Sci-Fi And Tech Shows You Need To Watch This Season‘. And some of them look pretty good. You know what we missed, though? This modern-day astrophysics badass first trailer for Neil deGrasse’s Tyson’s reboot of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos series. It looks absolutely incredible.

Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, originally aired as a 13-part television series in 1980 that saw Carl Sagan elucidating the mysteries of the universe and life’s origins for a mass audience.

Although the original was and is still fantastic, the show does look dated at this point, and modern public is used to a little more, say, flare in their space CGI. But from the looks of the trailer, Neil deGrasse Tyson is more than answering that call. The new, also 13-part series will be airing sometime in 2014. For now, we’ll just have to occupy ourselves with wondering about some the clip’s more confusing bits, such as — oh, deGrasse Tyson’s foray into Gladiator-wheat-field reenactments, for instance.
