Twitter Account Leaks The Last of Us HBO Series Footage and Other Secrets

Twitter Account Leaked “The Last of Us” HBO Footage

Posted by Twitter account @TheLastofUsNews, footage has leaked of filming for the new HBO series based on the “The Last of Us.” Presumably following similar events to the first game, we see Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, and Anna Torv as Tess. Through a series of Tweets, we get a peek at the amazing costume design of the characters, as they look as if they’ve been pulled right out of the game. Moss covered rubble lines the streets of Edmonton, where shooting wrapped up last night.

Filming is rumored to continue in Calgary, emulating the adventure the characters took from Boston in the first game. From what we’ve seen, the set design is absolutely incredible. Replicating something that has sat for 20 years can be a monumental task, especially when you don’t have 20 years to spare.

Video game based movies have historically been disappointing to many, with infamous Uwe Boll making some questionable films based on titles such as Far Cry, House of the Dead, and Alone in the Dark. With “The Last of Us” series having HBO’s monstrous funding and Pedro Pascal’s skills behind the roll, the series has the best possible chance it can to succeed. The narrative-centric nature of Naughty Dog games should make for excellent adaptations.

Metacritic Review Bombing

Only time will tell if writers Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann decide to follow the plot of the game, or take an alternate timeline approach to the series. They could decide to fill in the gaps of the game, where time passed in periods of months. The only downside of this approach is that those time periods were skipped for a reason, as no development occurred. This dilemma is the folly of video game movies and TV shows.

Here at COG, we’ll be watching closely as HBO’s “The Last of Us” nears its release sometime next year. For now we’ll be limited to guessing the timeline from filming leaks and hoping with HBOs expertise, “The Last of Us” blows away expectations of alternative video game media.
