12 Monkeys is coming to Syfy on January 16th, and you can finally get a look at what’s coming. Obviously inspired by the film, and the massive cult following that has continued to grow over the years, the show follows a time traveler who comes back to prevent the plague that has decimated the human race and left the planet in chaos.
The trailer lets you in on the fact that things are probably a lot more complicated than they seem, and it may be that no one actually knows what’s going on.
If the trailer is any accurate guide, this is going to turn into one of the most interesting shows in quite a while, and one that is going to hook a lot of people. Take a look above, and mark your calendar.

SyFy has released a new trailer for their upcoming TV series adaptation of 12 Monkeys. The story follows a time traveler (Aaron Stanford of X2 fame) from a post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day with a mission to destroy the source of a deadly plague that will one day annihilate the human race. While the show will lack the distinct style of Terry Gilliam's 1995 film, it still looks like an interesting time-travel film, and certainly more in the serious mold of SyFy's better series. This isn't a story that can only be told one way, and I'm curious to see what the TV series will do with it. Hit the jump to check out the 12 Monkeys TV series trailer. The show premieres at 9pm on January 16, 2015, and also stars Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Barbara Sukowa, Noah Bean, Tom Noonan, Emily Hampshire, and Zeljko Ivanek. Via Variety.

Syfy has released a new trailer for its upcoming drama “12 Monkeys,” based on Terry Gilliam’s trippy 1995 film of the same name.
Like the movie it’s based on, the show features Cole, played in the series by Aaron Stanford, being sent back from the future to the present day in order prevent a disastrous plague that will spell the end of mankind. The trailer stays true to the mind-bending, time-warping nature of the film as well, flashing back and forth between future and past, never leaving the audience quite certain who is from where or when.

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.

After an exhausting day spent wandering the New York Comic Con floor last Friday, Syfy offered me sanctuary in the form of comfy theater chairs and a sneak preview of their upcoming television reboot, 12 Monkeys. Based off Terry Gilliam’s popular film (Twelve Monkeys), showrunners Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas are looking to bring a hard science fiction bite to Syfy’s regularly scheduled programming, repurposing a famous genre brand in the process. While I can’t unleash a full review due to the show’s January 16th series debut, I am allowed to give you my initial thoughts on the entire pilot episode without spoiling any of the super-juicy details.
I’m not exactly sure if Gilliam is thrilled about the show’s existence, but the pilot sufficiently establishes a world that hits upon the 1995 classic while tweaking a few major points for a reinvigorated experience. Motives are established, »

12 Monkeys has been given a season one premiere date by Syfy.
The cable channel confirmed today (October 10) that a 13-episode first season will kick off on Friday, January 16 at 9pm Et.
12 Monkeys will air next year to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Terry Gilliam film on which it is based.
Gilliam himself adapted the 1995 movie from the French film La jetée, but he has called the television reboot "dumb" and "ridiculous".

To boost the profile of artists and athletes from Up North, the new Academy of Canadians in Sports & Entertainment — Los Angeles (Acise-la) has created the Golden Maple Awards, with the first kudos to be presented in June 2015 in Los Angeles.
The awards will honor Canadians in TV programs broadcast in the U.S., as well as the country’s athletes. There will also be honorary awards for non-Canadian talent and athletes.
“Canadian talent in Hollywood have flown under the radar for far too long,” said Evelyne Morrisseau, Acise-la executive director. “The Britishs have BAFTA-la events, and were well represented at the Emmys. With the Golden Maple Awards, we will be reminding Tinseltown that Canada has just as strong contenders as the rest of the world.”

It’s bananas how much new casting there is to report for 12 Monkeys.
Video Syfy’s 12 Monkeys Trailer
TVLine has learned exclusively that a quartet of actors have landed recurring roles on the Syfy drama, which is inspired by the 1995 feature film and stars Aaron Stanford (Nikita) and Amanda Schull (Suits) as a man sent from the future to stop a plague and the current-day scientist who helps him in that endeavor.
Kelly Frye has signed on to play DC Comics character Plastique in the upcoming "The Flash" TV series on The CW. In the series she'll play a more heroic incarnation of the character, at least initially. Plastique (aka Sgt. Bette Sans Souci) was a bomb disposal expert in Iraq.
Following the accident that gave Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) his super speed powers, Bette finds herself with the ability to turn everything she touches into a bomb. She seeks Barry's help as nefarious U.S. government forces chase her down. [Source: E! Online]

With Fargo proving that it’s possible to make great television out of excellent films (as we discussed previously), there are now plenty of other big-to-small-screen transitions on the way.
Of particular interest to the geeky-minded will be Syfy’s 13-episode televisual version of Terry Gilliam’s mercilessly mind-bending surreal sci-fi flick 12 Monkeys, which has now found itself a cast.
Cole, Bruce Willis’ time-travelling mental patient in the film, will be played on telly by Aaron Stanford, perhaps best recognised as Pyro from X-Men 2 and X-Men: The Last Stand, although he's also held roles in the 2006 version of The Hills Have Eyes and TV's Nikita.
Production on Syfy's upcoming "12 Monkeys" series begins next month, and along with more details on that we have two new cast members to announce, one of whom is quite near and dear to our horror-loving hearts.
From the Press Release:
Syfy’s adventure thriller "12 Monkeys" will commence series production August 6, 2014, in Toronto, Canada. The season, consisting of 13 episodes, stars Aaron Stanford (as time traveler Cole), Amanda Schull (Dr. Cassandra Railly), Kirk Acevedo (Ramse), and Noah Bean (Aaron Marker).
Syfy also confirms additional casting, inking Tom Noonan (pictured; The House of the Devil, The Roost, "Hell on Wheels") and Emily Hampshire (Cosmopolis, "Rookie Blue") for recurring roles. Noonan portrays a mysterious villain who is the face of the enigmatic Army of the 12 Monkeys. Imposing and intelligent, Noonan’s character will be at the center of the conspiracy. Hampshire will portray Jennifer Goines, a dangerous, unstable mental patient who might have the »

Well this is interesting. Syfy has said repeatedly that they didn't want a simple re-tread of the classic Terry Gilliam film in their 12 Monkeys TV series, and even though their first trailer looks exactly like it, they're at least changing up our perceptions of the characters. It's been announced that Emily Hampshire (a female if that was unclear) has snagged the role originally played by Brad Pitt (not a female).
I'm never opposed to seeing some creative casting choices for roles, even for well known properties. I've always been a big proponent of giving the best actor for the job the role (regardless of appearances). So hopefully, that's what Syfy is doing here by casting Emily Hampshire in the role Brad Pitt occupied in the film, and not some PR stunt to gather attention:

“Cosmoplis” star Emily Hampshire has been cast in SyFy's “12 Monkeys” in a role previously played by Brad Pitt. “Hell on Wheels” actor Tom Noonan, meanwhile, will play a mysterious villain. Both will appear in recurring roles, SyFy announced Tuesday. The network also announced the show will commence production on its 13-episode first season next week in Toronto.
