Hannibal Lechter has gone through several, for the lack of a better term, facelifts, in the past few years. Some of which have been okay and some have been utterly disastrous. This spring NBC plans to take a “stab” at the Hannibal franchise…I did it again, yesssss. This trailer doesn’t give much by way of Mad Mikkelsen (Valhalla Rising, Casino Royal) acting, but word has it that the full trailer will air tonight during SNL, so if your not going to be home, Tivo that mutha cause so far what I’m seeing looks pretty exciting, plus they used a track from Trent Reznor’s side project How To Destroy Angels…which can’t be bad.
The Bryan Fuller-produced drama is being billed as a contemporary take on the characters from Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon” novel that focuses on the fledgling relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), his mentor. Other key cast members include Lance Henriksen (Near Dark, roughly 8% of horror movies in general), Gillian Anderson (“X-Files”), Gina Torres (“Firefly”), “Wonderfalls”’ Caroline Dhavernas and Ellen Muth (Dead Like Me).
Head inside to check it out. The show airs April 4th.
