Starz's 'American Gods' Unleashes Gory New Trailer

Starz hypes up the upcoming premiere of its "" adaptation by releasing a new trailer. The new promo is gorier than the one debuted during San Diego Comic-Con 2016 as it previews some graphic violence and bloody scenes.

The new trailer highlights ex-con Shadow Moon () who gets caught up in "really weird s**t" as he becomes bodyguard for Mr. Wednesday (), who prepares for a war between Old and New Gods. "It will be glorious win or lose," someone says in voiceover.

Based on Neil Gaiman's Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel, "American Gods" pits Old Gods against New Gods, with the ancient mythological ones fearing irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology and celebrity offered by the younger deities.

The cast also includes as Easter, as Media, Bruce Langley as the Technical Boy, Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney, as Laura Moon, Yetide Badaki as Bilquis, as Mr. World, as Low Key Lyesmith, as Czernobog, Demore Barnes as Mr. Ibis, Cloris Leachman as Zorya Vechernyaya, and Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy.

From Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, the fantasy drama series is set to bow on Sunday, April 30 at 9 P.M. ET/PT on Starz. David Slade directs the pilot and additional episodes.
