So far the upcoming A&E series Damien has seemed pretty standard. However, this new teaser, entitled "Beast," is pulling out some pretty extraordinary imagery. We'll have to wait until the show's premiere to see if this exemplifies the show's aesthetic or not, but it definitely looks more Hannibal than Grimm. I'm in, at least for one episode. Check out the video below!
Damien follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 motion picture who has grown up seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist.
Barbara Hershey stars as Ann Rutledge, the world’s most powerful woman who has been tasked with making sure Damien fulfills his destiny. Omid Abtahi portrays Amani Golkar, a close colleague of Damien’s whose fierce loyalty will be tested when he realizes who his brother-in-arms actually is. Meganlyn Echikunwoke plays Simone Baptiste, a woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when tragedy unexpectedly strikes.
