Twisted Metal new trailer shows car combat

Twisted Metal has a brand new trailer, released by Peacock, showing more of what people can expect when the show releases on July 27th. In the trailer, we are shown that Anthony Mackie’s character is tasked with delivering a package in exchange for a better life, but the journey will not be simple. Plenty of people are a danger including Sweet Tooth. The trailer also shows some of what the games are famous for, and that is car combat.

The description for the show says, “Twisted Metal, a half-hour live-action TV series based on the classic PlayStation game series, is a high-octane action comedy, based on an original take by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and written by Michael Jonathan Smith, about a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With the help of a badass axe-wielding car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.”

The show, which was first confirmed in 2019, will consist of 10 episodes. In the main role is Anthony Mackie as a character simply known as John Doe. Joining him on the show are Tahj Vaughans as Mike, and Brooklyn 99 star Stephanie Beatriz. Will Arnett is playing the role of series icon Sweet Tooth. Twisted Metal will be a mixture of action and comedy, leaning into the outlandishness of the concept. The first Twisted Metal was released in 1995 followed by Twisted Metal 2 in 1996. Twisted Metal 3 and 4 followed in 1998 and 1999 respectively, with Twisted Metal: Black releasing in 2001. There was then a release on PSP with the final game, Twisted Metal, releasing in 2012 on PS3. There is a rumour that a Twisted Metal reboot is in development.
