Stan’s Wolf Creek TV miniseries gets a full-length trailer
All six episodes of Stan’s Wolf Creek series are coming May 12. Judging from the trailer, it’s got the potential to be a quality Aussie thriller.
Stan has just dropped the first full-length trailer, some stills and an official release date for its original series, Wolf Creek. Stan's Wolf Creek brings back John Jarratt as the murderous larrikin, Mick Taylor, who looks to be up to his old tricks cracking funnies and murdering backpackers.
This time around, Mick finds himself the target when a vengeful teenager (Lucy Fry) from the U.S attempts to track down the man who murdered her family. That's an interesting premise given that it turns the repeated formula of the first two films on its head.
The trailer evokes the sense of isolation and desperation that made the films so thrilling, but it also has all the hallmarks, (the sweaty bar patrons, hitching rides with truckers etc.) that make for a great Aussie thriller.
Stan also announced the extended cast which is worth making some noise about. There’s some of Australia’s best screen talent, like Deborah Mailman, on show and even a surprise cameo from Longmire’s Robert Taylor - likely to cameo for one episode as Jake Johnson (New Girl) did in Stan’s No Activity.
All six episodes of Wolf Creek will be available to stream on Stan from 12 May 2016.
