Watch the Cool Neon Opening Title Sequence for Neil Gaiman's AMERICAN GODS
Starz has unveiled the opening title sequence for their series adaption of Neil Gaiman's American Gods. The footage features the famous Las Vegas neon cowboy, a crucified astronaut, assorted metal animals, cars, and more. All of these things make up a totem. It has a very trippy neon psychedelic tone.
The story consists of the following characters: Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Laura Moon (Emily Browning), Bilquis (Yetide Badaki), Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones), Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber), Technical Boy (Bruce Langley), Easter (Kristin Chenoweth), Czernobog (Peter Stormare), and Mr. World (Crispin Glover).
When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.
American Gods premieres on Starz on Sunday, April 30th. If you haven't watched the most recent trailer for the series yet, make sure to check it out here!
