Marvel Studios and ABC are finally – finally! – ready to thrust the otherworldly city of Attilan under the spotlight, bringing us the first full trailer for their next joint effort.
Ever since both parties decided to overhaul Inhumans to be an eight-part TV series, rather than a feature film, wanting fans have been left on tenterhooks, pouring over an amalgamation of leaked trailers and unofficial set photos, not to mention a quick teaser. That all changes today, though, as we’ve finally got a full-length preview to feast on and we must say, it looks a lot better than we expected – from the impressive set design to Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) channeling a certain Ramsay Bolton, we’d even go so far as to say that we’re eagerly anticipating the final product lighting up ABC in three months’ time.
Focusing mostly on Black Bolt (Anson Mount), Maximus (Iwan Rheon) and Medusa (Serinda Swan) as they mosey around Attilan, it soon becomes clear that there’s trouble brewing beneath the rocky landscape of the moon, and it all stems from Maximus’ desire to overthrow his elder brother, Black Bolt, a being with a “voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.” That inexplicable ability is teased at the tail-end of today’s trailer, too, as Anson Mount’s mute lead lets out a whimper in pain, only to watch a police vehicle be tossed aside as though it were made of cardboard.
The show’s “cinema-quality” visual effects will no doubt come in handy when bringing Marvel’s Royal Family to life, but the bigger question will be whether Inhumans can win over the naysayers when its IMAX run begins on September 1st.
As we learned earlier this week, following its two-week stint in IMAX theaters, Inhumans will premiere via ABC on Friday, September 29th. It’ll stretch for eight episodes in total, with the first two being directed by Roel Reiné. Scott Buck (Iron Fist), meanwhile, serves as executive producer, and you can find the show’s all-new poster embedded below, courtesy of Yahoo!
Inhumans explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.
