A Giant Asteroid Is Headed to Earth and Somehow That's a Secret in CBS' Salvation

What can you say about a trailer that sums up its premise as “Asteroid. Earth. Boom”? Only that summer just got a whole lot more fun.


I don’t know if the ridiculousness of Salvation is on purpose, but I’m kind of digging how mindless it is.

If you want a show where people look pensive, this is for you!

Here’s the trailer, via EW:


Salvation premieres on July 12 at 9 pm.
