Video: Take your first look “UNDER THE DOME”

This past weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, CA got the premiere footage from the upcoming CBS Stephen King-based miniseries UNDER THE DOME. Naturally, it’s found its way online and serves as both trailer and behind-the-scenes featurette with comments from King, the cast and VFX supervisor Stephen Fleet, touting the show’s practical work. 

From King and HEROES and Y: THE LAST MAN writer Brian K. Vaughan, UNDER THE DOME is set in Chester’s Mill, Maine, where a mysterious force field suddenly descends and seals the town off from the outside world, and those trapped inside begin to turn on each other. CBS has announced the series will premiere Monday, June 24 at 10 p.m. THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO’s Niels Arden Oplev directed the pilot, and Rachelle Lefevre and BREAKING BAD’s Dean Norris star.

    American Horror Story has set the mark for excellence in horror anthology series. Please don’t put another crappy King made-for-tv piece out there…

    Didn’t know it was to be extended across 13 weeks! Sounds great — plenty of time for them to explore the characters.

    anyone notice the blood red hand print in the trailer is very (almost excactly) reminiscent of Richard Bachman’s (Stephen King’s literay pseudonym) book cover for THINNER.

    Sorry, but American Horror Story has set the bar in nothing (save for overwrought bullshit, which it did spectacularly. I dont necessarily have high hopes for CBS nailing this completely, but would bet money it’s ten times better than Ryan Murphy’s idea of what horror is.
