First Full Trailer for CBS’ Stephen King Adaptation UNDER THE DOME

     May 8, 2013


CBS has released the first full trailer for the limited series adaptation of the Stephen King novel Under the Dome.  For those unfamiliar, the supernatural thriller pits local folks against each other when they discover that their vacation town in Maine has been cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious force field.  Comic book/TV writer Brian K. Vaughan (Lost) is a writer on the project and the pilot was directed by Girl with the Dragon Tattoo helmer Niels Oplev Arden, so the behind-the-scenes talent bodes well for the show.  This trailer does a swell job of appealing to genre fans, as we get a look at the cast of characters that will inhabit the town under the dome along with some intense action thrown in for good measure.  This all feels very Lost-like, so hopefully that’s a good thing.

Hit the jump to watch the full trailer.  The series stars Dean Norris, Mike Vogel, Jeff Fahey, Rachelle Lefevre, Britt Robertson, and Keith HarrisUnder the Dome premieres on CBS Monday, June 24th.
