We’ve got some new key art for NBC’s “Hannibal” that looks sort of cool. Visually, I’d definitely say the marketing is looking to play up the campier elements of Lecter’s personality. Hey, gotta get to those people who only remember the “fava beans and a nice chianti” line from Silence Of The Lambs! We haven’t seen any of the actual show yet so the jury’s still out on that.
The Bryan Fuller-produced drama is being billed as a contemporary take on the characters from Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon” novel that focuses on the fledgling relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), his mentor. Other key cast members include Lance Henriksen (Near Dark, roughly 8% of horror movies in general), Gillian Anderson (“X-Files”), Gina Torres (“Firefly”), “Wonderfalls”’ Caroline Dhavernas and Ellen Muth (Dead Like Me).
NBC has yet to schedule a premiere date for “Hannibal.” Head inside for a better look!
