New The Mist Trailer Spells Destruction

Posted on: May 8th, 2017

The weekend brought not one new trailer for an upcoming Stephen King adap but two. As well as the awesome new It trailer, we also have a second one for Spike TV’s The Mist series, which even has its own title – Destruction. More of a crowd-pleaser than the first trailer – released in April – it packs in plenty of gore, fear and of course, the mist itself.

Rather than the enclosed space of the supermarket where the bulk of the action takes place in Frank Darabont’s 2007 film adap of King’s 1980 novella, Spike’s series will follow a number of scattered groups of people struggling to survive. Morgan Spector plays Kevin Copeland, who is cut off from his wife Eve (Alyssa Sutherland), who is trapped in a mall with their daughter and the man who raped her; Okezie Morro plays amnesia-sufferer Jonah who struggles to find allies; and Frances Conroy plays Natalie, whose theories about the origin of the mist lead to conflict with her small community of survivors.

The folk behind the project seem to be keeping Darabont’s acclaimed film in mind however, with executive producer Christian Torpe saying back in January that “…we talk about it as doing the ‘Fargo’ approach, where the movie and the TV show is the same, but it’s different. It’s like a weird, twisted cousin to the original source material.”

The Mist centres around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout, an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world and, in some cases, each other. Family, friends, and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.

The Mist premieres in the US on Spike on Thursday, June 22nd, at 10pm ET/PT.
