New 'Lemony Snicket' Trailer Expands Netflix Adaptation's Horizons: Watch

The eight-episode Netflix adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events just got its first trailer less than a month ago, but a new two-minute trailer is here to remind you that Jan. 13 isn't too far away. It's got plenty more of Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, but it also showcases a broader, more magical world than we'd previously seen. (ICYMI: There have been two teasers already, too.)

The witty writing's on display here, too. "You have to understand, he had a very terrible childhood," a man tells the children of Count Olaf. Young orphan Klaus Baudelaire replies, "I'm having a very terrible childhood right now."

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events also features Joan Cusack, Catherine O'Hara, Aasif Mandvi and Patrick Warburton. The novel series was previously made into a movie in 2004.
