On the heels of the SXSW World Premiere, Starz released a brand new trailer (see below) of godly proportions for the highly anticipated original series American Gods premiering on Sunday, April 30th @ 9:00 p.m. EST/PST. Fans will get a closer look into the epic journey of Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday with new footage from the fantasy series.
American Gods posits a different kind of war brewing—one between Old Gods and New. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.
