Cinemax has just released a new poster and trailer for Robert Kirkman‘s ‘Outcast‘ and while I am looking forward to the series, it feels like this teaser didn’t give a good idea on what to expect for the long haul. With the success of ‘The Walking Dead’ on AMC, it should come as no surprise that another of Kirkman’s horror themed comics would get snapped up at all, but what is surprising is how vague the actual previews have been on the premise. Cinemax has a potential hit on their hands that they could be doing a much better job at marketing.
In the series, we follow Patrick Fugit as Kyle Barnes who is a young man that has dealt with demonic possession since childhood. Only, he has the help to fight them and because of that will potentially change the world. While possession is clearly shown in the trailer there was a severe lack of Barnes’ place in the bigger scheme of things.
You can check out the trailer below!
Don’t get me wrong. I honestly think that the show does look good from what I know from the comic and can see here, I’m just worried that it isn’t showing enough details for those unfamiliar with the title. As a newer comic, it doesn’t have the built-in following or content that ‘The Walking Dead’ had right off the bat so we can’t expect it to have the same levels of viewership.
Of course it isn’t just a new trailer that we have for you but this shiny new poster as well!
Dark and creepy but just like the trailer I feel that it lacks a bit of what to expect.
Are you looking forward to ‘Outcast’? Do you feel that the trailer is showing off enough details or do they really need to be giving us more? Share your thoughts below!
‘Outcast’ is set to possess your televisions on June 3 at 10 p.m. ET on Cinemax!
