New Promo Spot for Stephen King's UNDER THE DOME
CBS has released a new promo trailer for their new TV series Under The Dome, which comes from producers Steven Spielberg and Stephen King. This is one of my most anticipated series of the year. It centers on the town of Chester's Mill which ends up being trapped under a giant dome with no way in and no way out.
The series comes from Brian K. Vaughan of LOST. The director of the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Niels Arden Ople, directed the first episode. I really enjoyed the book that the series is based off of, and it's sure to make for a solid series.
The sci-fi drama is set to premiere on Monday, June 24th at 10 pm. Check out the new trailer!
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.
Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a selectwoman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.
