Reading the Screen: Hannibal trailer
Posted by: David Pitt

Months and months ago I talked about the forthcoming NBC series, Hannibal, based on the characters created by Thomas Harris. The series takes place before the events in Red Dragon, the first of the novels featuring Hannibal Lecter, and the only one featuring Will Graham, the FBI profiler who’s the star of the NBC series.

In the TV series Graham is working with Lecter, unaware the man is also a serial killer — the series, in other words, fleshes out the background Harris hinted at in Red Dragon. (Which makes the show, if they do it right, not a ripoff, but a sort of backwards extension of the books and movies.)

There’s a new trailer for the series. I think they’ve got the atmosphere right, at least. We’ll have to see how they develop the story. Check it out:
