Syfy has released the first trailer for a series based on the premise that the archangel Gabriel has been fighting a war against mankind. Archangel Michael has betrayed his own kind to fight alongside with us…but will his help make a difference.
Some of this may sound familiar and if your one of those whose thinking that, then maybe you’ve seen the 2010 film, Legion. Starring Paul Bettany as archangel Michael, the film didn’t have a great start opening second to Avatar, also the reviews weren’t kind either.
Syfy must have faith in the film and its fans as their new series, entitled Dominion, is a sequel to the film Legion, set twenty five years later.
You can watch the first trailer below, as well as seeing the first poster.
Dominion will air in the US on Syfy on June 19th at 9pm (8pm central).
Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post–apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25 year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hell-bent on their domination escalates.
