Netflix's 1899 Poster Hints a Connection to Bermuda Triangle

Netflix has revealed a brand new poster for the upcoming German sci-fi thriller 1899, hinting at a possible connection to the mysterious Bermuda Triangle. For those unfamiliar, the Bermuda Triangle is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean that's long been associated with mysterious disappearances of aircrafts and ships.

The poster features Emily Beecham (The Pursuit of Love, Cruella) as Maura Franklin at the center of a triangle created by the sea, flanked by a couple of ships.

1899 comes from Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, the creators of the critically-acclaimed German time travel series, Dark. Both are producers and showrunners of 1899. Odar is credited as director, while Friese is credited with the writing.

The show also stars Anton Lesser (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Alexandre Willaume (The Wheel of Time), Aneurin Barnard (Dunkirk), Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen (The Rain), Mathilde Ollivier (Overlord) as Clémence, Miguel Bernardeau (Elite), Richard Hope (Piece of Cake), Clara Rosager (Morbius) as Tove, and Jonas Bloquet (Elle) as Lucien among others.

On the 1899's cast, here's what Odar and Friese said in a joint statement:

“What really made us connect to this idea was the concept of having a truly European show with a mixed cast from different countries. At its heart is the question of what unites us and what divides us. And how fear can be a trigger for the latter.”

The official synopsis for 1899 reads:

“1899. A migrant steamship heads west to leave the old continent. The passengers, a mixed bag of European origins, united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and their future abroad. But their journey takes an unexpected turn when they discover another migrant ship adrift on open sea. What they will find on board, will turn their passage to the promised land into a horrifying nightmare.”

1899 is set to premiere on Netflix on November 17. You can read more details about the show in everything we know about 1899.
