“I felt something … That it knew me,” says one of the characters in the new trailer for Spike TV’s The Mist miniseries.
Based on the novella by Stephen King first published in an anthology in 1980, The Mist will be a 10-episode series following the residents of a small town in Maine as they find their home engulfed by a mysterious mist. Bringing bizarre and inexplicable events to the town and messing with more than one townsperson, the series will test the characters and their relationships in ways that will not only try their sanity but also their humanity.
The first trailer for the series has landed and along with it comes a poster for the show as well. You can check out both below.
Of course, the novella first made its way to screens in 2007’s The Mist feature film by Frank Darabont. This time around, the story will be told as a “reimagining” of the source material as previously stated by executive producer Christian Torpe.
The Mist stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Washington, Jr., and Frances Conroy.
The story was reimagined for television by executive producer and writer Christian Torpe and produced for Spike by TWC-Dimension Television.
The Mist premieres Thursday, June 22 at 10 p.m. on Spike.
10 ‘Godzilla’ Kaiju That Need To Be In The MonsterVerse
With both 2014’s Godzilla and this year’s Kong: Skull Island managing to outperform expectations, the MonsterVerse from Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers is off to a good start. That being said, there’s room for growth amongst the roster of kaiju – thus far, only five classic kaiju have been confirmed to exist in the MonsterVerse: Godzilla, King Kong, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, and of those, we’ve only seen two of them in action. Should the series continue to succeed, the setting’s going to need more than original monsters like the M.U.T.O. and the Skullcrawlers – it will need to pull in some fan-favorite monsters from the classic creature features to keep things interesting. Here are ten of Toho’s best kaiju that would make fine additions to the MonsterVerse, with explanations of who they are and why they need to be a part of the setting.
