“AMERICAN GODS” DEBUTS NEW TRAILER IN ANTICIPATION OF APRIL 30TH PREMIERE

Fans have new content to worship from the television adaptation

 

Beverly Hills, Calif. – March 15, 2017On the heels of the SXSW World Premiere, Starz releases a brand new trailer of godly proportions for the highly anticipated original series “American Gods” premiering on Sunday, April 30th at 9PM ET/PT.  Fans will get a closer look into the epic journey of Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday with new footage from the fantasy series.

“American Gods” posits a different kind of war brewing—one between Old Gods and New.  The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.
