Fans of Stephen King’s The Stand, the moment we’ve been waiting for is here! The folks at CBS All Access dropped the first full-length official trailer today filled with sights and sounds of the apocalypse.
Whoever cut this trailer together kept things tight, giving us only brief glimpses with just enough narration to heighten the experience.
The Stand takes place in a world ravaged by a super-flu. In its wake, over 90% of the population has been wiped out, and from the ashes have risen two groups.
Those who are good heed the call of Mother Abigail (Whoopi Goldberg) and head to Colorado. Those who are evil follow the voice of the Dark Man aka Randall Flagg (Alexander Skarsgard) to Las Vegas. Of course, these two can’t live in peace, and if there’s any hope at all of survival, Flagg must be destroyed.
Goldberg and Skarsgard are joined by a phenomenal cast of talent including James Marsden, Jovan Adepo, Brad William Henke, Daniel Sunjata, Henry Zaga, Owen Teague, and Odessa Young in what promises to be one of the television events of the year!
The Stand is set to debut on December 17, 2020. The ten episode series comes with a special final episode/epilogue, written by King himself to give us a glimpse of what comes next in the lives of the survivors.
