Update: The trailer has been posted and removed a few times, but it seems that they have finally settled on a voice over. Hopefully this one sticks around.


The new trailer for the reboot of Carl Sagan's COSMOS was released at Comic Con this weekend. A 13 part series being released in 2014!

  1. I’m looking forward to the series but the music used on the above clip (albeit heard only through my laptop speakers) raises doubts in me that the music will be as good as it was in Carl Sagan’s Cosmos. I hope I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

      yeah I’m very excited about this too. It looks like they are bringing a lot of the old Cosmos into this one with the same locations and concepts. I can’t think of anybody better than Neil DeGrass Tyson to do it either.
      I don’t think you can top Vangelis’s theme however. Its so good I want it played at my funeral!
      I think they should have asked him for permission to reuse it, possibly with a re-mix.

  2. I’m not so sure about this after seeing the trailer. I was a child of the original series. It helped lead me to a career in science. The trailer seems too over-the-top for my taste. The original was sublime and the music beautiful. What I like about Tyson is his passion and enthusiasm, but he doesn’t have the grace and eloquence of Sagan. Maybe it’s what’s needed for a new generation. As long as it works to instill passion for science, I’m all for it.

      Same here. Too much wizz-bang. I have the same criticism about BBC programs. Keep it sober please, and not just for the Transformer kids. Although, I wouldn’t want to be the guy who has the job of restraining Mr Tyson’s enthusiasm.

  3. When I click on the Video link I get “This video is private.” I’m not sure whether I should take that personally or not. Perhaps there is a “zone restriction” so people from New Zealand aren’t allowed to watch due to copyright restrictions or some such corporate rubbish.

      It’s not you. They keep putting them up and taking them down. =

  4. I look forward to this re-make of CS’s classic, and NdGT’s passionate interpretation, but I hope it isn’t full of those 1-2 second sight-bites shown in the Trailer – and which plague so much of modern screen visuals – which cram as much information into as little time as possible…. Mac.

      It seems so odd FOX and National Geographic sponsoring just a show. They usually promote the Christian view.

      Fox News and the Fox Broadcasting Corporation are a separate entity. Threw me at first, too.

  5. I am excited to see this series! I saw “Contact” in the theaters. The end of the movie had the caption “For Carl.” A member of the audience said “Who’s Carl?” I just did a facepalm. If this new series can connect with another audience, I’m all for it.

  6. I am looking forward to this but after having watched Brian Cox on the BBC ‘Wonders Series’ it’s got a high standard to beat. I agree that Sagan was eloquent and graceful even, we’ll see if Tyson makes this special in his own way. I was thinking about what other Presenter’s we have who could have filled those shoes – apart from Brian Cox (who is a physicist) I can’t think of anybody else – apart from various actors. But I believe the makers of the Cosmos probably wanted a scientist to narrate. We’ll see! Can’t wait!

      Neil Degrasse Tyson was one of the guests on today’s edition of Brian Cox and Robin Ince’s The Infinite Monkey Cage on Radio 4.
