We have our first look at one of the big bad monsters in the upcoming HBO series, Lovecraft Country. After fans have called for a tease at one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most famous creations Cthulhu, the series delivered that in the latest and possibly final trailer for the show.
Based on the 2016 novel of the same by Matt Ruff, Lovecraft Country will take viewers deep into Jim Crow America as our characters fight monsters and racism to save a missing father.
Check out the incredible new trailer that arrived today…
The series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.
Lovecraft Country comes from the minds of Misha Green, Jordan Peele, and J.J. Abrams, and is set to premiere on August 16th.
