Comic-Con: Hand of God gets a new trailer
Staff Reporter | On 11, Jul 2015
Amazon has unveiled a new trailer for Hand of God at Comic-Con.
The event, which has become a major event for film studios in recent years, was gate-crashed by the streaming service this year, with new glimpses on offer of several of its new original shows.
Hand of God stars Ron Perlman in his first lead television role since Sons of Anarchy as Judge Pernell Harris, a hard-living, law-bending married man, who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart. With no real evidence to go on, Pernell begins to rely on visions he believes are being sent by God through Pernell’s ventilator-bound son.
The show is created by Ben Watkins, who was at the event this week to present the trailer, as well as take part in a panel with Perlman and his co-stars, Garret Dilahunt (Justified), Andre Royo (Happyish), Alona Tal (Supernatural), Julian Morris (Pretty Little Liars), Emayatzy Corinealdi (Criminal Minds), and Elizabeth McLaughlin (Betrayal).
The show was part of Amazon’s pilots scheme, which presents hour-long tasters of its original slate and invites people to offer feedback, which is used to determine the projects that will be commissioned for whole seasons. It will premiere later this year as part of Amazon Prime Instant Video, which costs £5.99 a month.
The pilot marked the TV debut of filmmaker Marc Forster and is still available to watch on Amazon Prime, regardless of whether you are a subscriber or not.
Here’s the trailer, which was released alongside a teaser for The Man in the High Castle.
