WATCH: HBO Drop full trailer for Stephen King supernatural series The Outsider

October 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

HBO have dropped the trailer for the upcoming limited series adapting Stephen King’s The Outsider and it looks great.

The series, like the book, will see Terry Maitland, played by Jason Baitman, accused of the horrific murder of a boy with witnesses identifying him as the killer… however, it couldn’t have been him as he was already seen somewhere else at the same time. This leads to a dark, thrilling and frightning tale that, despite a disappointing ending, is vintage King.

Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, The Outsider premieres January 12 on HBO.

The 10-episode series follows police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn), as he sets out to investigate the mutilated body of 11-year-old Frankie Peterson found in the Georgia woods.

The mysterious circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.

The cast includes Ben Mendelsohn, Cynthia Erivo, Jason Bateman, Bill Camp, Mare Winningham, Paddy Considine, Julianne Nicholson, Yul Vázquez, Jeremy Bobb and Marc Menchaca.

The series will premiere on January 12, 2020

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
