Trailer of The Prisoner remake appears online

We flagged this up last year and now, presumably with screening just around the corner, a trailer for the new version of The Prisoner has appeared online.

As reported, the new version isn't a straight remake, but a new take that reflects '21st century concerns and anxieties, such as liberty, security and surveillance, yet also showcase the same key elements of paranoia, tense action and socio-political commentary seen in McGoohan’s enigmatic original'.

If that sounded like hard work, it's not as hard as the trailer itself, almost 9 minutes long and it has to be said, less than inspiring. But if you want to check it out, you can view it below. Expect it to be on the small screen on both sides of the Atlantic in the very near future – on ITV in the UK.
