12 Monkeys is one of our favorite time travel movies, so when we heard they were making a TV show based on it, we were skeptical. Could they possibly capture everything that was great about the movie in a weekly series? Well, we're not sure exactly how it will turn out, but the new trailer from SyFy made us a believer.

Here's the official description:
12 Monkeys is a drama based on the 1995 Universal Pictures film directed by Terry Gilliam.

The show follows the journey of a time traveler, Cole, from the post-apocalyptic future.  Using a dangerous and untested method of time travel, Cole arrives in the present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate 93.6% of the human race. Will Cole be able to save the fate of mankind or is mankind bound by fate? Taking place in the ravaged future of 2043 and the present day (2015), 12 Monkeys explores themes of destiny, fate, love and the possibility of second chances.

Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven (American Hustle, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Trilogy) and Richard Suckle (American Hustle, The International) serve as Executive Producers. Roven produced the original film. Terry Matalas & Travis Fickett (Nikita), writers of the pilot, will serve as Co-Executive Producers with Natalie Chaidez (In Plain Sight, V, Heroes) as Executive Producer/Showrunner. Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights) directed and served as Executive Producer on the pilot.

Actually, it looks better than the film. Sorry, the movie was just a little too odd for me.

I'm assuming you're not a fan of Terry Gilliam in general. "Too odd" is what people normally say about him.
