New American Gods trailer is out
Starz has released a new trailer for American Gods during SXSW, and viewers can get a bit more on what the show’s about. Here we see Ian McShane as Wednesday, an incarnation of Norse mythology’s Odin, getting ready for a war between the Old Gods and the New Gods.
Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, the eight-episode series is executive produced by Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Michael Green and also stars Ricky Whittle as Shadow, Gillian Anderson as Media, Crispin Glover as Mr. World, Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy, Peter Stormare as Czernobog, and Emily Browning as Laura Moon.
American Gods premieres April 30th.
Synopsis: When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.
