HBO has released another trailer for it’s new supernatural horror drama series Lovecraft Country. In this trailer you will find a creature that could be straight out of Lovecraftian lore due to the striking resemblance to Cthulhu.
The series focuses on Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors), his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) as the set out on on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). Adding monsters to the already racist terrors of white America pits the antagonists on a seemingly impossible mission.
The show is being produced by J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele and is based on the 2016 novel by Matt Ruff. Director duties are helmed by Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller. Look out for the series to release on August 16th.
