We have seen a number of short teaser trailers for CBS’s TV adaptation of Stephen King’s Under the Dome, and now finally we have a full length trailer to show you, and it is very impressive.
While many continue to make comparisons to The Simpson’s movie, it is clear that this new series is very serious indeed, and has a bag of ideas up its sleeve, Being based on a King story too, I don’t see how this superb looking new series can fail.
Niels Arden Oplev, who helmed the original Swedish version of “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” will direct the first segment. Britt Robertson, Natalie Martinez, Colin Ford, Alex Koch, Jolene Purdy, Rachelle Lefevre, Mike Vogel, Dean Norris, Aisha Hinds and Nicholas Strong star. Lost writer Brian K. Vaughan is the shows creator.
The Steven Spielberg produced adaptation of Stephen King’s Under the Dome will begin on CBS on 24th June.
Here is the synopsis for the show:
“UNDER THE DOME” is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and if and when it will go away.
The 13-episode summer series will premiere June 24th on CBS. It stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Nicholas Strong, Jolene Purdy, Ned Bellamy, and Aisha Hinds.
