NETFLIX has teased viewers with a haunting first look at period drama 1899.

The streaming giant's latest offering has already been dubbed 'the new Bridgerton' with some very familiar faces making up the cast.

5Netflix has teased a trailer for their latest offering 1899

The romantic series set in the 19th century, dropped at the end of last year and broke records for Netflix - becoming its most-watched show in 83 countries.

Now Netflix is hoping to replicate Bridgerton's huge success with another historical tale, this time set in the last year of the 1800s.

1899 is set to tell the story of an immigrant ship travelling from Europe to New York, with a hopeful set of individuals on board.

But the trip takes a dark turn when they encounter a second ship thought missing.

The synopsis reads: "The passengers, a mixed bag of European origins, united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and their future abroad.

"But their journey takes an unexpected turn when they discover another migrant ship adrift on open sea.

"What they will find on board, will turn their passage to the promised land into a horrifying nightmare."

To entice future fans, there's already the knowledge that the cast will consist of several familiar faces.

As well as Anton Lesser who took on the role of Qyburn in Game of Thrones.

Then there's also Belgian star Jonas Bloquet in The Nun and Emily Beecham, who viewers may remember from Into the Badlands.

And the four are just an example of the representation of actors from a range of countries.

Showrunner Jantje Friese commented: "1899 is a truly European series with characters from various countries speaking in the language of their origin.

"We feel very fortunate to have found amazing talent from all over the world to venture into this exciting journey with us."

1899's release date is still to be announced with production - on a virtual production stage - kicking off in Germany this month.

Oxygen review: Netflixs breathless sci-fi thriller works if you dont think about it too hard

Army bases offering vaccine incentives but no military-wide policy for now Biden to meet DACA recipients in immigration overhaul push

A film literally made from thin air, the French thriller Oxygen (on Netflix starting Friday) is a neat little sci-fi nightmare; a cool-toned exercise in claustrophobia that nearly pulls off the innate improbabilities of its high-concept nonsense. It will also make you almost absurdly grateful for the ordinary limits of your own living space when Mélanie Laurent's unnamed protagonist awakens, thrashing and terrified, to a cryogenic chamber in which she's been mysteriously, meticulously mummified.

© Provided by Entertainment Weekly Netflix © Netflix Netflix's Oxygen is a cool-toned exercise in claustrophobia that nearly pulls off the innate improbabilities of its high-concept nonsense.

Disorienting flashbacks — a gasping lab rat, a hospital gurney — are the only hints she has of how she got here; the AI voice of the chamber's operating system (Sound of Metal's Mathieu Amalric), her lone point of "human" contact. The news, as he delivers it serenely, is not good: Her oxygen supply is damaged and depleting fast; would she care for a sedative? Non, merci. And so begins the race to find out who and where she is. (The why and how will have to wait.)

Director Alexandre Aja (Crawl, The Hills Have Eyes) comes from horror, and he brings a clammy urgency that overrides some of the script's sillier turns. (The eventual Inception logic of it all is perhaps better left unscrutinized.) The casting, too, took a scenic route; at different points, both Anne Hathaway and Noomi Rapace were reportedly slated to star.

A more mainstream name or an English-language script no doubt would have granted the movie a wider kind of appeal, subtitles still being the low-bar bugaboo of casual viewers. But Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Beginners), long a César-winning star in her native France, makes the role entirely her own: Furious, determined, and desperately human, she breathes indomitable life into every frame. Grade: B
