Chuck Hogan and Guillermo del Toro finally dropped an extended trailer for the new FX series, The Strain, debuting July 13. The footage looks creepy as hell, the scenes on the plane made me wide-eyed from a moment or two. Fans of the comic will want to check this out; it’s Guillermo del Toro for God’s sake.
The Strain stars Sean Astin, Roger Cross, Leslie Hope, Regina King, Robert Maillet, Lauren Lee Smith, Miguel Gomez, Kevin Durand, David Bradley, Richard Sammel, Corey Stoll, and Mia Maestro.
“ ‘The Strain’ is a high-concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers wage war for the fate of humanity itself.”
