Save who you can save.
Zombie apocalypse thriller The Last of Us, with Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, will premiere January 15th on HBOMax, after spending almost a year filming in Alberta from mid-2021 to mid-2022.
Pedro Pascal’s survivor Joel Miller treks across a pandemic-ravaged America protecting Bella Ramsey’s young Ellie who represents the last hope of humanity adapted from the Naughty Dog video game.
The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed.
