WATCH: The Trailer For Netflix's Adaptation Of 'A Series Of Unfortunate Events'

While we were sceptical at first, this actually does look brilliant

When Netflix first announced they would be recreating Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events, we were more than a little bit sceptical. 

Firstly, why bother? The original is brilliant and not even that old.

Secondly, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Thirdly, we don't have a third point, but we were utterly against this. 

BUT after seeing this trailer we've actually changed our minds. The new adaptation looks pretty brilliant, kind of Tim Burton-esque with the classic weird, wonderful and eerie vibes. 

"If you are interested in stories with happy endings, then you would be better off somewhere else."
