The Handmaidís Tale Teaser Trailer Arrives from Hulu



Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

I had another name, but it’s forbidden now. The Handmaid's Tale premieres April 26th, only on Hulu.

Quote:
Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values'. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

why not just re-release the one from 1990 with Robert Duvall and Faye Dunaway?

Seems like an odd choice when there was a great movie already. Still, I sure like that actress so I'll check this one out.

Like The Giver, dystopian science fiction novels such as The Handmaiden's Tale set in artificially traditional settings always bored me. Perhaps it is the depiction of a far flung future that I most care about in the genre.
