The Last of Us: The official poster for the HBO series brings back memories of the PS3 cover
We had to be patient for a long time, but now the time has come: Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal will conquer our screens in the new HBO series in a few weeks. Over the months we have already seen some set pictures and finally also official trailers or teasers. Now the poster is also available The Last of Usadaptation surfaced – and it immediately brings back memories for us.
This is what the poster looks like
The poster was posted on Twitter and shows – hardly surprising – the two main characters of the story, Ellie and Joel. Set against an overgrown skyline, they walk in the opposite direction of the camera but turn to face it. Joel, walking behind Ellie, throws a very suspicious look over his shoulder as Ellie looks around for him.
The sky above the two is shrouded with gloomy clouds, but in between the sun flashes here and there – matching the subtitle of the poster: “When you’re lost in the darkness, look for the light” (When you’re lost in the darkness , looking for the light).

More news and information from the The Last of Us universe:
The motif is reminiscent of the PS3 cover
If you feel like you’ve seen the scene before, that might be because the image reminds you of the cover of the PS3 version of The Last of Us. This also shows Ellie and Joel in front of a city silhouette, facing away from the camera but looking back.
The city must be Pittsburgh judging by the architecture. In addition, Ellie wears the gun that she receives there very prominently over her shoulder.
Even though the scene is very similar, there are some differences: For example, the positions of the two are reversed on the PS3 cover. In addition, the architecture differs somewhat and the different mood lighting is also noticeable. The PS3 cover is wrapped in warm sun tones. Nevertheless, it’s nice to see how the adaptation once again captures the mood of the game and immediately arouses associations with fans.
When does The Last of Us series start? The series starts on the night of January 15th and 16th exclusively on Sky Atlantic and WOW in Germany. If you want to know more about it, check out this article.
