With the release of The Last of Us series on HBO Max nearing, the marketing for the show continues to hype up its arrival on the streaming platform as they drop a chilling new poster with Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie in the middle of a post-apocalyptic background.
HBO Max just dropped a new poster for the upcoming series The Last of Us and it teases the post-apocalyptic world that Joel and Ellie will traverse, with the chilling words, "When you're lost in the darkness, look for the light."
The poster for The Last of Us is strikingly similar to the poster of the game from where the series is based on when it launched in 2013 for PlayStation 3. The quote is also directly pulled out from the game of the same name.
Naughty Dog first released the action-adventure game, The Last of Us, in 2013 which was published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is a third-person perspective game where players go through a post-apocalyptic United States and they can use firearms and improvised weapons to defend themselves from the infected.
As seen in the trailers and the posters, Pedro Pascal, known for his roles in The Mandalorian, Narcos, and Game of Thrones, will be playing Joel in The Last of Us, and Bella Ramsey, known for being in Game of Thrones and The Worst Witch, will be portraying Ellie.
The Last of Us will follow Joel, a smuggler who would have to escort Ellie through a post-apocalyptic United States plagued with the infected and human hunters. Lamar Johnson who will play Henry and Keivon Woodard as Sam will be joining the cast as well.
Gabriel Luna is also set to take on a new role in The Last of Us where he would play Tommy, a former soldier and the younger brother of Joel. Along with Luna are Ashley Johnson, Nick Offerman, and Troy Baker who both have unannounced roles.
The Last of Us arrives on HBO Max on January 15, 2023.
