Netflix has released the first trailer for their adaption of Dark Horse comics series The Umbrella Academy.
The trailer introduces us to children, five of whom have superhuman abilities, are adopted by a billionaire with just the best name, Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore), and trained to save the world in what comes to be called The Umbrella Academy: Spaceboy (Tom Hopper), The Kraken (David Castañeda), The Rumor (Emmy Raver-Lampman), The Seance (Robert Sheehan), Number Five (Aidan Gallagher), and The White Violin (Ellen Page).
Also, there is a talking chimp so what is there not to like.
Checkout the full synopsis below.
On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured, and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya, and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.
The Umbrella Academy will be available to stream on February 15, 2017.
