HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Full Trailer Is “Ready to F–kin’ Explode!”
We recently heard the unusual news that HBO’s Damon Lindelof rapture drama ‘The Leftovers‘ would push its ‘Game of Thrones‘ lead-in premiere back by two weeks to accommodate a hiatus in production, but the latest trailer for the new series assures us it’ll be well worth the wait. Watch the world go mad as 2% of Earth’s population completely disappear in the fullest, NSFW-est trailer for HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’!
Our best look yet at ‘The Leftovers’ opens in the midst of whatever “rapture” event sees portions of the population vanishing altogether, as even infants disappear from their carseats, causing panic and confusion all around. Some time later, tensions look ready to boil over as the smoking “Guilty Remnant” make their presence known to the survivors, clad all in white, while teens engage in revelry, and an ominous figure warns that “the grace period is over.”
For those unfamiliar, HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ follows those left behind on Earth after a rapture of sorts, those not chosen to be taken up to Heaven. Adapted from Tom Perrotta’s 2009 novel of the same name, the show’s pilot was directed by Peter Berg (‘Lone Survivor‘) and stars Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Amanda Warren, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Michael Gaston, Max Carver, Charlie Carver, Annie Q, Paterson Joseph, Brad Leland, ‘Private Practice‘ vet Amy Brenneman, and ‘Fringe‘ star Emily Meade.
The mystery will be unveiled on June 29, so check out the full trailer for ‘The Leftovers’ above, and give us your predictions in the comments!
