NBC’s ‘Hannibal’ Serves Up a New Poster
Over the weekend we were finally treated to a sneak peek trailer of NBC’s forthcoming Bryan Fuller-helmed ‘Hannibal,’ even if the preview showed relatively little of the doctor himself. The new series has officially been set for an April 4 premiere, somewhat worryingly occupying the slot left behind by doctor dud ‘Do No Harm,’ will ‘Hannibal’ prove a much more palatable meal? Check out the latest creepy one-sheet poster for the new ‘Hannibal’ Lecter drama inside!
‘Hannibal’ “the cannibal” Lecter isn’t a presence we’d expect to see fully unleashed on NBC, but the upcoming series from director Bryan Fuller has already proved significantly gory and creepy in just the brief footage we’ve seen. Teasing the additional carnage sure to come, TVLine has obtained a new poster for the Thomas Harris-adapted series, which shows the good Dr. Hannibal Lecter doing (or finishing up) what he does best.
In addition to its title character played by Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy’s Will Graham, ‘Hannibal’ boasts appearances from ‘Dead Like Me’s’ Ellen Muth, Lance Henriksen and ‘The X-Files’ star Gillian Anderson, Laurence Fishburne and spouse Gina Torres playing Jack Crawford and his wife, ‘Veep‘ star Anna Chlumsky, comedian Eddie Izzard, ‘SNL‘ alum Molly Shannon, ‘Pushing Daisies’ vet Ellen Greene, ‘Wonderfalls’ star Chelan Simmons, Lara Jean Chorostecki as a female interpretation of ‘Red Dragon’ character Freddy Lounds, and Raul Esparzaas Dr. Frederick Chilton.
Set in the early days of Will Graham and Lecter’s partnership, Fuller’s envisioned series is said to be “a love story” told across at least seven seasons, presuming NBC can keep it around that long.
