Fall TV Preview

First Look Art: Welcome to Terra Nova, Folks

Capping a series of tongue-in-cheek promo graphics advising Terra Nova colonists to not feed the animals (read: dinosaurs!), the first fierce piece of key art for the much anticipated Fox series has arrived — and TVLine has your first look.

Fall TV First Impression: Is Steven Spielberg’s Terra Nova a Blast, From the Past?

Abandoning the aforementioned wink-winky campaign for imagery that’s more intense, the Terra Nova promo art puts series lead Jason O’Mara — who plays time-traveling family man Jim Shannon — front and center, with his brood on one side and compound commander Nathaniel Taylor (Avatar‘s Stephen Lang) on the other. Meanwhile, up in the sky, one can spy a flock of very angry birds aka pterodactyls.

Casting Scoop: Fox’s Terra Nova Taps Tudors Star

Executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Terra Nova opens big with a two-hour series premiere on Monday, Sept. 26. In the meantime, those excited for the time-trippy series can play with the show’s Facebook app as well keep an eye out for the cross-country traveling Terra Nova Mobile Experience (next hitting San Francisco this Wednesday; full schedule here).

    • He’s been my boyfriend since the TV series IN JUSTICE. And speaking of justice, if there were any he’d be a HUGE star. The TV screen is too small for him. I want him in movies. (Glad to hear he’s a nice guy!)

  • Given the hype and delay with this show….Fox better hope it does well. But it’s dinosaurs and Steven Spielberg, so how can it not?!

  • Leather pants in the Jurassic period? He’s going to be one sweaty, cranky hero! (Actually looking forward to this one…hoping it makes up for Spielberg’s Falling Crap…er…Skies)

    • Ha, I thought same, but they instead appear to be dark-finish dungarees — maybe they’re all the rage in 2149?

    • I’m enjoying Falling Skies thank you very much and it looks to me as if Jason O’Mara is wearing jeans. Not leather pants.

    • It’s not leather, it’s laminated denim.

  • I’m confused… so there’s a forest inside the tree on the left?

    • Just an arch in the tree perhaps…
