A survivalist dress code, staff walking around in hazmat suits and beat-up vending machines spilling with snacks to loot aren't your usual staples at a premiere event. But, as this was an immersive preview screening of the brand new Last of Us series produced by HBO, these were a perfect mood-setter for a viewing of the first episode (more on episode one below). 

Video game TV and film tie-ins are becoming more popular than ever in recent years. With the success of The Witcher series on Netflix and the upcoming release of the Super Mario movie from Illumination, it wasn't going to be long before Sony threw its hat into the live-adaption ring. With The Last of Us being one of the top exclusive titles from PlayStation, it was no surprise when HBO announced it was working on a series based on the original game.
