HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Debuts Chilling New Poster: About That Grace Period…
HBO’s rapturous new drama ‘The Leftovers‘ debuted its first full trailer last night, the impressive nature of which has been getting quite a bit of play around the internet this morning, and now our new Damon Lindelof drama has done itself one better. Prepare for the end of grace and get raptured by our first official poster for HBO’s ‘The Leftovers!’
Calling back to a moment in the trailer that debuted last night (which itself was scored to James Blake’s “Retrograde,” for those wondering), the new poster highlights a frantic Justin Theroux with the tagline “Grace Period Is Over.” Much like Lindelof’s previous series ‘LOST,’ the nature of the worldwide event that saw 2% of the world’s population vanishing isn’t made entirely clear, though last night’s trailer highlighted that a “Guilty Remnant” believe the disappearance to have been the biblical Rapture, and that “some bad s–t’s coming, and there’s no getting around it.”
For those unfamiliar, HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ follows those left behind on Earth after a rapture of sorts, those not chosen to be taken up to Heaven. Adapted from Tom Perrotta’s 2009 novel of the same name, the show’s pilot was directed by Peter Berg (‘Lone Survivor‘) and stars Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Amanda Warren, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Michael Gaston, Max Carver, Charlie Carver, Annie Q, Paterson Joseph, Brad Leland, ‘Private Practice‘ vet Amy Brenneman, and ‘Fringe‘ star Emily Meade.
HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ will premiere on June 29 (having been pushed back two weeks from its original premiere for an unexpected production hiatus), so check out the impressive trailer again above, and feast your eyes on the full poster below!
