HBO ‘s television adaptation of The Last of Us is just over a month away from launch. The first season starts on January 15 and will offer nine episodes that will be released once a week, but the authors did not specify how voluminous the series turned out in terms of overall timing.
This question was partially answered by the Hungarian division of the portal IGN, which managed to find out the duration of the first episode of the show. According to the publication, it will run for 90 minutes (an hour and a half), which is on par with some feature films . In addition, an exclusive early premiere of the debut series on the big screen will take place in one of the cinemas in Budapest on January 11, but only representatives of the specialized media and a few lucky people who will be able to win pre-screening tickets will be able to attend.
The roles of Joel and Ellie in the series were played by Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsay (Game of Thrones), respectively. The latter recently stated that the television adaptation of The Last of Us should live up to the expectations of fans of the original game, although it will also not do without hater reviews.
