This Trailer has fed us plenty of information already despite being only 25 seconds long.
The tone is clearly going to be darker and I think that's appropriate because that tends to happen with escalation in a story that's progressing to the next stage. 2008's The Dark Knight is a prime example of how Batman goes from beginner crime fighter to dealing with a much more formidable foe in Heath Ledger's The Joker.
Now I'm not saying that the villains will ask question of where they got their scars or how they're dogs chasing cars, but you get the premise that things are going to get worse before they better.
With such Easter eggs as Jeff Tracy's ship with TV21 being a nod to TV 21st Century which was owned by Gerry Anderson and to the iconic 60's International Rescue hat that was worn throughout the series by all the Tracy Brothers.
Now whether this was something Jeff wore for his own preference or just throwing a bone to the fans is unclear at this point but all the same it was cool to see this.
As to whom the Antagonist is with the backpack weaponry for lack of a better description is also unclear.
My suspicion is that this will be a re-imagined version of Mullien from the disaster that was the 2004 Thunderbirds flick.
But I have been proven wrong before so why should this be an exception?
Bring on Autumn and Season 2.
Before the Storm Season 2 : Mission 03
There's a lot to take in as this is the second review I have come across that is outright praising the show in the States.
This was one of the areas where the original was not as successful as it would have liked to have been. And the less I say about the sacrilege that FoxKids did to the show in the mid 90's, the better.
Below is the review from Deadline Hollywood. It's brief and to the point which is what you want with most reviews these days.
I'm putting the clip from IMDB on here as I'm not entirely sure how YT will react to it
Before the Storm Season 2 Mission 2
What I get into this week is something very pleasing with the knowledge that American viewers are really digging this show so much, so quickly.
The review here is the best piece of news that the Producers and fans here in the UK were hoping for in that Mily Dunbar was really bowled over and that their kid was really into it straight away just mirrors what took place just a little over a year ago when that iconic countdown with Peter Dyneley's voice echoing at the start of the show that sent chills down our spines as the legendary Tracy family returned for a new Generation of fans that saw that Thunderbirds Are Go, once again.
Before The Storm Season 2: MIssion 01
This is just phenomenal news. Having already confirmed that the show was extended to a second season before the 1st episode even aired back in late 2014 was a very good sign, but to then hear that this happened was just even more of a confidence booster that this Generation of Thunderbirds was going to stick around a lot longer.
This will bring the total up to 78 episodes by the time Season 3 ends which will effectively make this show have had more screen time than the original series. But, by extension, this was already achieved with it being renewed for a second season, but the point still stands.
Also, check out Philip Wray's Compositing Reel. Really talented Visual Artist
Safe to say we will be seeing the adventures of International Rescue for some time to come.
