Netflix’s upcoming series “Squid Game” has released a new trailer!
“Squid Game” is a new drama about a mysterious survival game with a reward of 45.6 billion won (about $40 million). Lee Jung Jae and Park Hae Soo star as two childhood friends who wind up joining the game—only to learn that there’s much more at stake than just the prize money.
The trailer begins with a group of people dressed in the same green tracksuits, like a prison or a school. Mysterious figures in red tracksuits and masks explain that everyone in the room is desperate and has no hope of paying their debts back and getting their lives on track. They will now participate in a game that can make them rich beyond their dreams.
The participants enter a strange facility where they are led around by the masked people and their information stored in computers. To ensure “fairness,” none of the participants are told what the games will be in advance. The participants are then led out on a field where a giant robot plays a children’s game that involves a group of people running up to one person who has their back to the crowd and trying to tag them before they turn around. If the person turns around, the other contestants must remain frozen in place or be tagged out. The participants are baffled at the childishness of the game until it is discovered that the people who are “out” are brutally killed.
As expected, the participants try to escape the facility as a robotic voice proclaims, “This is just a game. As long as you follow the rules, you can leave this place with the prize money.” Ominously, the voice adds that no player can stop playing the game, and that those who refuse to play will be “eliminated.” At the end, Lee Jung Jae screams, “A person has just been killed!” to the cameras as a group of faceless people watch the deadly game.
