For the first time ever, one of the most fascinating literary and film characters comes to life on television: psychiatrist-turned-serial killer, Dr. Hannibal Lecter. The new drama series titled Hannibal comes from Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Heroes) and is based on the characters from Thomas Harris’ classic novels.
Here’s the synopsis of the show:” Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone – even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch. If Will only knew…” It looks good!
The show also stars Laurence Fishburne, Caroline Dhavernas, Hettienne Park, Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson (whom you probably know best from Kids In The Hall). Check out the first trailer below!
What happens when you wake up, and you have no idea where you are, or who you are, or what you’ve done? That’s the question that is asked when a man (played by Adrien Brody) finds himself in a car wreck in the middle of a forest. With multiple injuries and being trapped inside, he must rely on his most primal of instincts to survive.
As he begins to work on getting himself free of the wreck, he starts to discover a dark past. Through his discoveries, he must try and remember what he can to weave between the truth and the lies to discover who he truly is or, face the consequences of his earlier, forgotten life.
The film premiered as a part of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival in October of last year and was well received by audiences. The entire film was only shot in 18 days due to its minimal cast and efficient director, Michael Greenspan. Brody also served as a producer for the film. I think the movie looks great, but you be the judge.
