American Gods Trailer 2

Starz has released the second TV show trailer for American Gods (2017). Unlike the first promo for this show, the viewer is given the main plot of the upcoming TV series. From the trailer, American Gods is going to be one bloody TV show. The strength of the project is the old versus the new but in a very unique way.

The closest that I have seen to American Gods is the underrated film The Immortals. In that film, the Gods were ordered by Zeus not to interfere in the affairs of man. In American Gods, Mr. Wednesday enlists the aid of a human being to help him and the old Gods against the threat of the new Gods.

My guess is that Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) will dangle Laura (Emily Browning) in front of Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle)’s face to get him to do his bidding. I would also wager that Laura’s death was no accident. Too coincidental. I have not read the book that American Gods is based on so this is all conjecture.

American Gods‘ plot synopsis (spoilers): based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, “When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand.

It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.”

American Gods also stars Dane CookYetide Badaki, Bruce Langley, Cloris Leachman, Demore Barnes, Orlando Jones, Pablo Schreiber, Peter Stormare, and Crispin Glover.
