Someone made a very believable teaser trailer to Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, based on the beloved novels by Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler). The video was posted yesterday by under the account “Eleanora Poe,” whom fans know as the Editor-In-Chief of the The Daily Punctilio. EW confirmed with Netflix that the trailer had not come from them.
There are thirteen books in the series starting with The Bad Beginning, which was originally published in 1999. In 2004, Jim Carey starred as Count Olaf in the film version of the first novel along with Emily Browning, Liam Aiken, Catherine O’Hara, and Meryl Streep.
A Series of Unfortunate Events is set to stream on Netflix in 2016 and follows the lives of the Baudelaire siblings Violet, Klaus and Sunny after their parents tragically pass away in a fire. They are sent to live with a creepy distant relative, Count Olaf, who only wants them for their inheritance.
