Just before its highly anticipated arrival this summer summer, AMC has released the Season Premiere Teaser of the supernatural drama, NOS4A2. Based on the bestselling novel by Joe Hill, the AMC drama will premiere with the fifth season of Fear The Walking Dead on the very same night.
Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings) is a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto). Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted place of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law.
Here are 5 reasons we love the sneak peek of NOS4A2:
5) Vic McQueen Vs. Charlie Manx!
AMC released the official key art and a sneak peek clip from the highly-anticipated supernatural horror series. Known for the critically acclaimed The Handmaid’s Tale, Kari Skogland will be directing the first two episodes of the upcoming AMC drama.
The footage places a special emphasis on Vic McQueen (Cummings). It starts with Charlie Manx (Quinto) saying “Who do we have here?” Cummings sells the moment with a chilling expression, making viewers feel the fear of someone truly menacing and terrifying.
Charlie Manx (Quinto) ends the video stating, “I’ll be in touch.” It’s quite a chilling audio that we get to hear of Quinto’s gruff voice. There’s a scene before of Vic being all bloody up. Geez, is that round one between them?
2) The Artwork!
If you look at the poster, Quinto is both sick in the vampire makeup and still sinister in the other half. Cummings looks half beaten as well in the poster but still strong. The red and blue artwork reminds me of those old-school EC horror comics.
Confirmed as panelists, showrunner Jami O’Brien and author Joe Hill will be in attendance at this upcoming BookCon. This is reason enough alone to book your ticket already! At Book Con 2019, the NOS4A2 panel will take place at New York City’s Jacob Javits Center on Saturday Jun 01, 2019, 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM in Room 1E10.
NOS4A2 will premiere back-to-back with Fear The Walking Dead on Sunday, June 2 starting at 9:00pm.
