Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Preacher is one of those tricky properties to properly adapt. Remain too faithful and you run the risk of creating a laughably absurd, tonally catastrophic mess. Venture too far away from the source material and you may alienate the very fan base you wish to please. Thankfully, producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and showrunner Sam Catlin have hit that rare sweet spot, and though the pilot episode of AMC’s Preacher does recalibrate some of Ennis and Dillon’s basic plotting and setups, the essential spirit and characters of the graphic novel remain delightfully the same.
Dominic Cooper is following up his role as the younger Howard Stark in Marvel’s Agent Carter with two more franchise adaptations this summer. In addition to appearing on the big screen in Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, Cooper stars in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher, the new AMC series based on Garth Ennis’ beloved graphic novels. Debuting on May 1, the first episode impressively captures the darkly comedic and devious tone of the comics, leaving us eager to see more. We had a chance to speak with Cooper following the premiere of Preacher at SXSW, where he discussed his part in the risky adaptation and teased some of the crazy stuff we'll see in the episodes and (hopefully) seasons ahead.
May is nearly upon us, and with it comes the official AMC premiere of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher adaptation. Now, the entire cast steps into the sun (some umbrellas required) for the full cast photos from AMC’s next comic-adapted drama.
If you found yourself a little underwhelmed by the previous Warcraft trailer, the latest one is definitely more action-centric, offering plenty of new footage and lots of that crazy fantastical magic-and-creatures-and-orcs business that made the original game series so popular. And if that doesn’t sound like your cup of mead or whatever, then this new trailer probably won’t sway you.
You didn’t think AMC would let The Walking Dead Season 6 fianle weekend go by without a sneak peek of its next big horror hit, did you? You best go see the Preacher, now that the AMC comic drama has a brand-new teaser trailer filled with new footage.
Let’s take a break from Batman and Superman for another epic battle — the Alliance vs. the Horde, aka Warcraft. The international trailer for Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the hit MMORPG has arrived, bringing lots of new footage as the two factions prepare for all-out war, and two races unite to protect their future. Orcs and humans fighting together, mass hysteria, etc.
In the midst of our excitement for all the new superhero movies hitting theaters this year, it’s easy to forget another major blockbuster: Warcraft. The latest TV spot for Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the hit game is action-packed and features some new footage, and while we’re still a bit skeptical of how successfully the series will translate to the big screen, one thing is for certain: at least it looks interesting.
Preacher promotion will be heating up, now that we have an official premiere date and reviews coming out of SXSW, and already AMC has a new sacrificial offering. Go behind the scenes with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for a new look at the sinful comic-adapted drama!
It’s been a long road to get Preacher in live-action, and at last we know when that road will end. AMC has officially set a May premiere for the Seth Rogen-Evan Goldberg adapted series, serving up a smokey new poster of our new Preacher in action.
