If you thought The Handmaid’s Tale had some eye-popping (sorry Ofwarrren) visuals before, wait until you see Season 2. Our first full trailer for the dystopian drama’s hotly-anticipated return is here, and it looks like Gilead is ready to e-x-p-l-o-d-e.
The first teaser for The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 is officially under your eye. Return to Gilead with a first look at the Emmy-winning Hulu nightmare’s sophomore season; now set for a spring 2018 premiere.
Blessed be the fruit, Hulu’s best (and most terrifying) original series isn’t going anywhere. The streaming outlet has placed a Season 2 order for the adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s decisively feminist novel The Handmaid’s Tale.
Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ brings Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel to life with terrifying and timely precision, and performances from Elisabeth Moss and Alexis Bledel that will rock your very soul. Our early review, before the first three ‘Tales’ arrive on April 26.
Something tells us the hashtag “#TOOREAL” will trend across the internet once Hulu debuts its forthcoming adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Come, watch the downfall of our political structure in a full trailer for the April premiere, and be warned of some disturbing imagery.
There’s no two ways about the fact that Hulu’s take on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is going to feel horribly relevant in its April premiere. That’s never more apparent than in a new featurette for the Elisabeth Moss drama, which explores the rise of misogynist dystopia “Gilead.”
One wouldn’t necessarily think of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale for a primetime Super Bowl ad, but Hulu’s Elisabeth Moss drama is already breaking down societal norms. See for yourself, as a fresh trailer teases what was once forbidden, and the misogynist hellscape Offred now lives in.
When noted British actor and confirmed Caucasian male Joseph Fiennes announced last year that he’d play Michael Jackson for an upcoming TV series called Urban Myths, the public had an understandably adverse reaction. Though Fiennes confirmed that he’d portray the King of Pop after he got his controversial skin-whitening procedure, the fact remains that a white man would be playing an African-American man in a confusing sort of blackface without a literal black face. The Fiennes’ credit, he’s confessed to The Hollywood Reporter that he understands “why people are up in arms,” but hopes that audiences will be a little more understanding when they see that the show takes all sorts of liberties with the personal lives of historical figures.
Everything we’ve seen from Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale has seemed equal parts timely and enrapturing, but a first trailer for the Elisabeth Moss-led series very much seals the deal. See for yourself, as the world becomes a dystopian, misogynist hell that Offred is intent on surviving in the first footage.
