FX Releases First Teaser Trailer for The Strain

FX's new creepy adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain has released its first 30 second teaser trailer. What's particularly impressive about the brief look into the dark and frightening world is that it manages to emphasize the terror of the story while still remaining extremely vague about the exact plot of the series. What we can take away from the trailer is that something wicked has arrived, and it certainly won't be going quietly into the night. Rather, this unnamed threat is looking to take over the Earth. The Strain is one of the most eagerly anticipated new series of the year, as del Toro will be teaming up with Lost's Carlton Cuse to adapt the literary trilogy for the small screen. del Toro and Hogan have even co-written the pilot, with del Toro taking the helm as director for the series' first episode. The series will star Corey Stoll, Mía Maestro , David Bradley, Sean Astin, and Doug Jones. It will premiere on Sunday, July 13, and will air a 13 episode first season. Check out the teaser trailer:
