Last week saw the release of a rather nifty teaser for CBS' "Under the Dome", which used a cover of Jimmi Hendrix's "All Along the Watchtower" to cool effect. Now the network has unveiled an even longer trailer, this one running a full 2:32 and giving us our best look at the television miniseries yet.
Just down Route 119 in Chesterís Mill, Maine, all hell is about to break looseÖ On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day, a small town is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and rain down flaming wreckage. A gardenerís hand is severed as the dome descends. Cars explode on impact. Families are separated, and panic mounts. No one can fathom what the barrier is, where it came from, and when ó or if ó it will go away. Now a few intrepid citizens, led by an Iraq vet turned short-order cook, face down a ruthless politician dead set on seizing the reins of power under the dome. But their main adversary is the dome itself. Because time isnít just running short. Itís running out.
"Under the Dome" stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Jeff Fahey, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Nicholas Strong, Jolene Purdy, Ned Bellamy and Aisha Hinds. It beings on June 24th.
