    It remains to be seen just how important of the fascinating, winding complexity of Cixin Liu’s The Three-Body Problem ends up making it into Netflix’s forthcoming adaption of the novel from co-creators Alexander Woo,D.B. Weiss, and David Benioff. But in a new clip from the show that’s just dropped as part of Netflix’s Geeked Week show, it looks like 3 Body Problem( that’s how Netflix is spelling it) is going to get one of its most important worldbuilding rudiments veritably right in a way that makes the story’s deeper riddle intriguing to watch unfold.

    While the new teaser clip debuted during Geeked Week doesn’t really broach the way 3 Body Problem’s story delves into China’s history and what becomes of humanity at one of the most vital moments in ultramodern history, it does establish one of the meanings of its title.

    In Liu’s book, Three-Bodies is an immersive virtual reality game that transports players to naturalistic recreations of different moments from the distant history. Neither Jack Rooney( John Bradley) nor Jin Cheng( Jess Hong) feel to know important about the strange, metallic headset in their possession in 3 Body Problem’s new clip beyond the fact that it looks nothing like any other gaming equipment on the request.

    But when Jack slides the thing onto his head, he substantiates firsthand how the experience feels as if he’s been physically transported to an insolvable place that should n’t feel so real. It’s all so mesmerizing that Jack slightly has time to understand what’s passing when an unknown woman( Sea Shimooka) pops up and kicks him out by slicing him with a brand. And while the caravan does n’t give much further than that, compendiums of Liu’s novels should have a solid sense of what’s going on.

    The uncanny addictiveness that comes with playing Three- Body is just one aspect of the larger mystification being erected together in Liu’s books, and it seems like Netflix’s 3 Body Problem might be poised to nail that part of its adaption. It’s a good sign that when 3 Body Problem hits Netflix on March 21st, it ’ll be commodity worth digging all the way into.
