June 28th–

AMC has decided that we, the viewing audience, need INFORMATION!! So, they rolled this nine minute promo clip out for their new remake of the surreal Brit drama The Prisoner. Patrick McGoohan played the original Number 6, and is replaced here by Jim Caviezel, who seems to be taking the character in less of a lone-wolf direction. Ian McKellan is the head of the Village and I’m glad to see him here. He’s exactly the kind of presence that will help make this work.

Overall, Im impressed. This is going to be a 6 part mini-series starting in November. All of the elements are here, just updated and re-arranged. Save for Rover, which looks about the same except alot bigger.

Check it out HERE.

    That’s quite the promo. Reminds me of hearing about Avatar getting 15 mins shown in theaters for one day only. I wish my brain could function enough to provide more info on that right now!

    Great way to hype things up at least!
