New Lovecraft Country Trailer Questions the Nature of Reality
What are stories? In HBO’s new Lovecraft Country trailer, Atticus Black defines stories as living things that can take the reader or viewer to unknown worlds. But this summer, Atticus; his uncle, George; and their friend, Letitia; are going a dark journey. Atticus’ father has summoned him to Lovecraft Country, in order to fulfill his family’s legacy. However, the trio has even bigger problems than Jim Crow era racism.
An otherworldly evil is lurking beneath the surface. And the terrifying events of the trailer will force Atticus to question reality itself.
Jonathan Majors stars in the series as Atticus Black, with Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Letitia Dandridge, and Michael K. Williams as Atticus’ father, Montrose Freeman. Additionally, the series features Abbey Lee as Christina Braithwhite, Aunjanue Ellis as Hippolyta Black, and Wunmi Mosaku as Ruby Dandridge. Courtney B. Vance also recurs on the series as George Black.
Misha Green is the showrunner of Lovecraft Country, and also the executive producer alongside Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams. HBO will premiere the first episode of Lovecraft Country in August.
