With a reported budget of $90 million, producer Harvey Weinstein and Netflix are bringing massive scope and scale to “Marco Polo,” in what they surely hope will become a binge-watch, must-see event. The first trailer is here to show you where all that money went. In short, it paid for sex and spectacle.
Joachim Ronnin and Espen Sandberg (“Kon-Tiki,” “Pirates Of The Caribbean 5“) are behind the camera for the first few episodes of a show detailing the famed explorer’s time in the Kublai Khan ruled 13th century China. And that means lots of sweeping vista, writhing naked bodies, fights and more. The trailer has a lot of eye candy, but we’re still not sure what the story might be. But we’ll find out soon enough when the show hits Netflix in December.
Check out the trailer below. Will you be watching?
