“Have you ever heard of the Man in the High Castle?” asks Juliana Crain in the bombastic new trailer for the third season of Amazon Prime Video’s series of the same name. The often somber series seems to ratchet up the explosions and thrills in this new trailer, as the Nazis attempt to destroy all signs of American society, melting down or demolishing any symbols that may inspire resistance to their rule. But these extreme actions only intensify the resolve of the freedom fighters, including Juliana (Alexa Davalos). But things are stirring on the other side of this conflict as John Smith (Rufus Sewell) braces himself for the upcoming war that he senses is coming.
‘The Man in the High Castle’, based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, depicts a parallel universe where the Nazis won World War II and conquered America, splitting it in half, with the Germans taking the eastern side, while Japan claimed the west. But because this is a true science fiction series, these Nazis discover other realities and are building a humongous device with an eye on conquering these worlds as well… and that could include our own.
Check out the new trailer below:
The new trailer is set to U2’s classic anthem ‘Pride (In the Name of Love)’, written about Martin Luther King Jr., as covered by German singer Lxandra. As Amazon’s press release stated, “this is the first time that U2 has allowed ‘Pride (In the Name of Love)’ to be covered and used commercially.”
