The new Hannibal trailer is out now and you can see it above, but in case you missed it, the trailer opens with a montage of footage from the new series: Hannibal, for those of you who aren’t up to date on all the series’ plotlines and themes, is a series of four films in which Hannibal Lecter (Matt Ryan) and his allies go after a serial killer, a serial rapist, and a serial pedophile.
It stars Bryan Cranston as Lecter, Viola Davis as Lecters daughter, Maggie Gyllenhaal as Mary Lou (who is, you guessed it, a child), and Adina Porter as Maria (the mother of a serial child killer).
You’ll also be seeing a new version of Hannibal’s character, the cannibal who’s been feeding on the corpses of people he’s killed.
In the trailer, you can watch the opening montage in its entirety below.
