Ahead of November 1 launch of its video-streaming service, Apple yesterday at Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California premiered its upcoming sci-fi drama “See”.
Starring Jason Momoa, “See” will also feature actors and actresses such as Alfre Woodard, Nesta Cooper, Archie Madekwe, Hera Hilmar, Yadira Guevara-Prip, Sylvia Hoeks, Christian Camargo and others, many of whom Apple says are blind or have low vision.
Written and created by Steven Knight and directed by Francis Lawrence, ‘See’ takes place in the distant future after a deadly virus decimated humankind. Those who survived emerged blind. Jason Momoa stars as Baba Voss — the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see — who must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who wants the twins destroyed. Alfre Woodard stars as Paris, Baba Voss’s spiritual leader.
Apple’s press machine has been in full swing in the run-up to the official Apple TV+ launch.
