AMC has played it pretty close to the vest with Preacher, but they’re finally starting to let some glimpses trickle through. Last week, the network followed up the WonderCon screening with a first look at Ian Colletti‘s take on the fan-favorite character Arseface, and today brings a new teaser trailer showing off some of the series stunning imagery, including lots and lots of violence. Domic Cooper stars as Jesse Custer, a wayward preacher who is taken over by an almighty power and teams up with his unpredictable ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and a cocksure Irish vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) to find God, literally.
Much like the first trailer, the new teaser is really playing up the bloody, horror elements of the series (no surprise given the mammoth success of The Walking Dead), but it’s also really downplaying the twisted, depraved sense of humor that is a fundemental element of what makes Preacher so unique. Based on the beloved comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg developed the series for AMC, and brought on Breaking Bad‘s Sam Catlin as showrunner. Preacher also stars Jamie Anne Allman, Lucy Griffiths, Euphrates “Tee” Arthur,W. Earl Brown, and Thomas Barbusca and premieres on AMC May 29th. Check out the new teaser below.
Here’s the official Preacher synopsis:
Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between. The series stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, W. Earl Brown as Sherriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Derek Wilsonas Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface.
