Earlier this month, NBC bestowed its viewers with a 30-second teaser for the upcoming series Hannibal, based on the world created by author Thomas Harris. After the jump, you’ll find a 2-minute international trailer which provides us with a much better look at what’s to come.
The series looks at the early days of FBI agent Will Graham’s career and the time when he worked alongside Hannibal Lecter – naturally, before Graham realized Lecter was a cannibal. It appears the series is taking a few creative liberties, picking up with Graham being drawn back into the FBI game, which is where we saw him in Red Dragon/Manhunter – but in that book/film, Lecter had already been capture and Will was mentally exhausted/scarred by his time in the field.
David Slade directs the first episode which premieres April 4th.
