‘Hannibal’, the NBC series following the relationship between Dr. Lecter and Agent Graham, releases its first trailer


Writer Thomas Harris’ cannibal villain Dr. Hannibal Lecter first gained the attention of filmmakers in the 1986 Michael Mann film Manhunter. However, it was with the 1991 Jonathan Demme film The Silence of the Lambs that the character became part of film history, aided by a legendary performance from Sir Anthony Hopkins. Thus, a show NBC picked up for the 2012-2013 tv season that focused on Dr. Lecter’s early days as a consultant with the FBI and the rapport he had with Agent Will Graham before his arrest and incarceration piqued the interest of many. Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller is the creative force behind the show, with Mads Mikkelsen taking over the role of Dr. Lecter, and Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne, Scott Thompson, and Caroline Dhavernas joining him onscreen. The series will make its premiere on April 4th, taking over the 10 pm timeslot on Thursdays that was left vacant with the cancellation of Do No Harm, and a trailer for the show has now been released, which can be seen below.

There was once a time when I thought Scarface was the best movie ever made, and Home Improvement was appointment television for me. While I still have a soft spot for both, those days of naivete are long behind me, as I’ve subsequently managed to broaden my horizons. Ambition is the most important part of a movie for me; if it tries to do something unique, tell a well-worn story in a different way, or take on large themes in a honest manner, I can forgive many flaws. If there’s one movie fact I’ve learnt after all these years, it’s that Employee of The Month is to Office Space what fast food is to fresh fruit.
