Reviews of Damon Lindelof's rapturous new HBO drama 'The Leftovers' have been uniformly across the board, but few would argue that a new series from one of the more controversial voices behind 'LOST' was at least worth a look. Now, HBO has put the full pilot online, along with a brand-new trailer teasing the dour drama ahead!
You can watch the entire premiere via the Yahoo link below, though in the meantime HBO has also released a brand-new season trailer (up top) that teases plenty of fire, and dark drama to come. We've seen the first batch of episodes from the series, and they're definitely worth sticking around for, even if 'The Leftovers' doesn't intend to explain away its central mystery at any point.
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, or at least so a portion of the population believes of the disappearance. Adapted from Tom Perrotta’s 2009 novel of the same name, the show’s pilot was directed by Peter Berg (‘Lone Survivor‘).
The Leftovers’ also 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.
