The Stand Drops First Teaser Trailer for New Stephen King Series — Watch

....Another pandemic is around the corner, only this time it’s purely fiction.

CBS All Access has debuted the first footage from the latest Stephen King adaptation, The Stand, set to premiere December 17. (New installments of the nine-episode limited series will then air weekly each Thursday.)

Based on King’s bestselling novel, The Stand centers on a battle between good and evil in a post-apocalyptic world, with the elderly Mother Abagail (played by The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg) and a small group of survivors going up against the villainous Randall Flagg, aka The Dark Man (played by True Blood alum Alexander Skarsgård).

In the trailer embedded above, we catch a first glimpse of Goldberg’s Abigail Freemantle, as another character yells out, “Hello? Anyone alive out there?” The post-virus world has slowed to a dead stop, wth survivors searching their surroundings for answers. The teaser also shows abandoned cities, corn stalk mayhem, sick patients writhing in bed, gunshots and then Freemantle again — only this time she’s staring down a savage looking white wolf with a mean set of chompers.

King himself will write the ninth and final episode, including a new coda not found in the original novel. Goldberg and Skarsgård will be joined by an ensemble cast including Dead to Me’s James Marsden (as Stu Redman), Amber Heard (as Nadine Cross), Odessa Young (as Frannie Goldsmith), Henry Zaga (as Nick Andros), Arrow’s Katherine McNamara (as Julie Lawry) and Jovan Adepo (as Larry Underwood).

The Stand was previously adapted into a 1994 ABC miniseries starring Gary Sinise.



can you....stand it.......?!

The only cast member I've heard of is Whoopi Goldberg.

Meh. Why did they have to remake this? The 1990s series was fine, and though it wasn't perfectly faithful to the book, that might have been for the best. Also, some of their casting choices are really dubious.

Lastly, I have to wonder if the timing of this isn't really insensitive. I don't want this going to the other side, but releasing a miniseries about a world-ending, lethal virus during a real-life pandemic is maybe not the smartest move...

I loved the book when I was growing up (the revised and expanded version is worse than the original text IYAM), but I'm not at all sure this is the right moment to release a movie about a deadly pandemic...
