Full “HANNIBAL” trailer previews a stylish, bloody affair
The early days of Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter seem half procedural, half therapy session; all enrapturing.
There’s about as little new to a damaged authority figure returning to the field as there is to Hannibal Lecter, but against all odds, NBC’s upcoming series looks and smells (will it taste?) fresh. Opening with the soothing sounds of Laurence Fishburne’s voice, this much longer clip gives us an idea of how HANNIBAL plans to play out; that is, following the solo (but linked) adventures of Thomas Harris-created agent Will Graham and the notorious Dr. Lecter, and then watching them convene for consultation and psychiatric evaluation in between. Meanwhile, all manner of murder, flesh consuming, dreamy imagery and once again, Fishburne voice round out the proceedings.
The lovely look comes courtesy of PUSHING DAISIES and DEAD LIKE ME creator Bryan Fuller. HANNIBAL premieres Thursday, April 4.
