AMC's The Terror — Official Trailer


added: Sun, Jan 14th '18

AMC has released the official trailer for "The Terror," the upcoming doomed expedition series that's based on the best-selling historical horror fiction novel by Dan Simmons, and features a strong ensemble cast led by Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones), Jared Harris (The Crown) and Tobias Menzies (Outlander).

Executive produced by Ridley Scott and created by screenwriter David Kajganich (who also wrote the upcoming "Suspiria" remake), the ten-episode series offers a terrifying fictional account of a real-life British expedition that went missing in 1845.

Hinds portrays real-life British Admiral John Franklin, who commanded both HMS Erebus and HMS Terror during a failed attempt to cross the Northwest Passage. While traveling through the frozen ocean, both ships were marooned, exposing the crew to the harsh environment of the Arctic.

Many believed the men eventually succumbed to either the exposure of the climate or starvation, or possibly mental deterioration. Some, however, theorized that the men weren't alone -- they were hunted down like animals by a mysterious ice monster.

The first two episodes of the AMC thriller is being directed by acclaimed German helmer Edward Berger, who previously directed the Berlin Wall-era spy series "Deutschland 83" and is also helming the upcoming Benedict Cumberbatch miniseries "Patrick Melrose."

"The Terror" premieres Monday, March 26th on AMC.

Set in 1847. A crew of a Royal Naval expedition is sent to find the Arctic's treacherous Northwest Passage but instead discovers a monstrous predator, a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival, the consequences of which could endanger the region and its native people forever.
