Syfy’s ‘Dominion’ Releases Full Trailer and Photos: It’s Not Over Until They’re Extinct, or We Are!
Syfy has been on a kick of late with cannibalizing cult sci-fi films for TV options, the latest of which, ‘Dominion,’ derives from 2010 angel thriller ‘Legion.’ We saw a few short promos of the new sequel series drama before, but now the war has officially erupted anew in the full ‘Dominion’ trailer and photo set, chock full of angels, bullets and good old-fashioned scripture (not really).
The full trailer for the June 19 premiere sees soldiers battling a new type of armored angel, as ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer”s Anthony Stewart Head warns that the new war will undoubtedly end it at least one side’s extinction. Meanwhile, TVLine managed to obtain a new set of photos from the series, placing heavy emphasis on what appears to be an arena spectacle.
Here’s how Syfy’s official logline for ‘Dominion’ reads:
Based on characters from the hit theatrical film ‘Legion’ (2010), ‘Dominion’ is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post–apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25-year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hellbent on their domination escalates.
‘Dominion’ stars Christopher Egan (‘Kings’), Tom Wisdom (‘300‘), Roxanne McKee (‘Game of Thrones‘), Alan Dale (‘LOST‘), Anthony Stewart Head (‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘) and Luke Allen-Gale (‘The Borgias‘).
‘Dominion’ will first air a 90-minute pilot/movie directed by the feature’s director and co-writer Scott Stewart, while ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ writer Vaun Wilmott wrote the script. Check out the photos and the trailer above, and tell us if you’re interested to check out the June 19 premiere!
