Trailer: THE ESSEX SERPENT’ TRAILER
A widow, a village vicar, and a mythical beast…are the rumors true? Set in Victorian England featuring a star studded cast led by Claire Danes, Tom Hiddleston, Frank Dillane, Clémence Poésy and Hayley Squires, ‘The Essex Serpent’ follows London widow Cora Seaborne (Danes) who moves to Essex to investigate reports of a mythical serpent. She forms an unlikely bond with the village vicar (Hiddleston), but when tragedy strikes, locals accuse her of attracting the creature.
I’m drawn to this. Religious and sexy. My kind of combo and fatal attraction.
I could care less for the mythical aspect of the story, I think the star-crossed romance between the widow and the vicar is more compelling and if the writers knew their onions, that would be the conflict at the forefront of the story with the investigation of the magical creature as a connective subplot.
But we’ll see. It looks good on the surface, though it’s curious its two leads in Clair Danes and Tom Hiddleston haven’t posted about it on their social medias since it dropped two days hence. Are they unaware the trailer has debuted or just not confident of the end result? Either way, I’ll be tuning in MAY 13 when Apple TV+ premieres the first two episodes of ‘The Essex Serpent’ with the following four rolling out weekly until June 10.
