New Video Game-Inspired TV Series ‘Twisted Metal’ Drops First Trailer

Twisted MEtal

Oh man, this looks good.

If you played a bunch of video games in the late ’90s or 2000s, there’s a good chance you’ve either played or heard of Twisted Metal.

And if you need a little run down of how the game worked, it’s basically this:

You get a sweet ride, and battle opposing drivers to the death, as each car is loaded with a ton of weapons.

A little dark when you’re 8-years-old? Probably, but that doesn’t mean it was the most fun/frustrating game on the planet at the time.

But speaking of Twisted Metal, a new TV series streamed on Peacock that’s 100% based off the original game is in the works, and they just dropped the first trailer today.

The new series created by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick stars famed actor Anthony Mackie as John Doe, a crazed driver of “Roadkill” who is looking for a better life, according to Collider.

In the trailer, you can see Mackie loading up his car to partake in the game, all to the background music of Len’s song “Steal My Sunshine,” and then he rides off to a ton of destruction off in the distance.

Oh yeah, and if you were wondering about the wild ice cream truck Sweet Tooth, it will be featured as well, as you can see a bunch of bloody knives at the back of the truck and the terrifying clown Needles Kane accompanying it.

The rest of the cast features the likes of Thomas Hayden Church, Neve Campbell, Richard Cabral, Mike Mitchell, Tahj Vaughans, and Lou Beatty Jr.

The show is slated to premiere July 27th on Peacock.
