New Trailer for THE FIRST OMEN Tells the Story of the Birth of Evil Incarnate — GeekTyrant

20th Century Studios has released a new trailer for the upcoming psychological horror film The First Omen. The movie serves as a prequel to the original 1976 film, and it tells the story of the young woman who gives birth to the Antichrist and the son of the Devil.

Of course, the movie has to rehash lines and scenes from the original movie such as, “It’s all for you.” I get why these kinds of franchise movies do that, harkening back to past films, but I also think it’s lazy storytelling. Do something different!

In the film, “When a young American woman is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church, she encounters a darkness that causes her to question her own faith and uncovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate.”

The First Omen stars Nell Tiger Free (Servant), Tawfeek Barhom (Mary Magdalene), Sonia Braga (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Ralph Ineson (The Witch, Onyx the Fortuitous), and Bill Nighy (Living).

The film is directed by Arkasha Stevenson, based on characters created by David Seltzer (The Omen), with a story by Ben Jacoby (Bleed) and a screenplay written by Tim Smith and Arkasha Stevenson and Keith Thomas (Firestarter). The producers are David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) and Keith Levine (The Night House) and the executive producers are Tim Smith, Whitney Brown (Rosaline), and Gracie Wheelan.

The original 1978 film scared the hell out of me when I first saw it when I was growing up. The nanny hanging herself at Damien’s party will haunt me forever. That film was followed by three sequels, including 1978’s Damien: Omen II and 1981’s The Final Conflict, as well as the 2006 reboot. There was also a short-lived Damien TV series.

The movie comes from 20th Century Studios and it will be released in theaters on April 5, 2024.
