Amazon has released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming original fantasy neo-noir TV series the Carnival Row, and it teases an inhuman danger heading towards a city filled with lots of magical creatures.
Amazon Releases Carnival Row Teaser Trailer
Amazon’s new TV series Carnival Row teaser trailer features stars Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad), standing back-to-back, as they take turns delivering a monologue about the dangerous things coming and the need to work together.
The teaser begins with the Delevingne’s winged faerie Vignette Stonemoss explaining that there is a “rift in the city.” Then Bloom’s police officer Rycroft Philostrate says that “time is running out. Something inhuman approaches us.” Vignette finishes by saying, “We must all now come together.”
All of this ties into the original synopsis released by Amazon that reveals that mythical creatures fled their war-torn homelands and had ended up in a neo-Victorian city where lots of tensions grow between the mythological immigrants and the city’s population.
A series of unsolved murders creates more tension and from the sound of the Carnival Row teaser trailer, the guilty party may be some dark unseen force that forces the mythological creatures and the humans to work together or perish together.
Rene Echevarria (Star Trek: The Next Generation) will serve as showrunner, while Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim) and Paul McGuigan (Victor Frankenstein) will produce the show’s eight-episode first season.
