New ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ Trailer
With Starz set to kick its 2013 line-up into high gear this Friday with the premiere of ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned,’ the network has spared no expense in ramping up promotion of its other upcoming genre epic ‘Da Vinci’s Demons. Executive produced by David S. Goyer (‘The Dark Knight,’ ‘Man of Steel‘), the Starz drama takes a new look at one of history’s greatest inventors as a sexy action hero, but will you be able to tame ‘Da Vinci’s Demons? Check out the latest trailer for Starz’s new thriller inside!
In advance of the show’s April 12 premiere, Starz has conjured up yet another trailer for its forthcoming ‘Da Vinci’s Demons,’ featuring the likes of series stars Alexander Siddig (‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Lara Pulver (‘Sherlock‘). Another thrilling re-imagining along the lines of Starz’ other genre epics,’ ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ is written and executive produced by ‘The Dark Knight‘ scribe David S. Goyer and tells the unheard tale of Da Vinci (Tom Riley)’s action-packed youth, as he “sets knowledge free, defies authority and throws himself into the future, forever changing the fate of mankind.”
Goyer himself recently spoke out about the series, explaining a few of the historical deviations, and even likening Da Vinci to some of the other superheroes he’d written, including Batman and ‘Man of Steel.’ “We’ve embellished it with what I’m calling historical fantasy; he had an incredible life and we didn’t have to embellish as much as you’d think,” Goyer says. “I didn’t want to do Ye Olde Historical Drama; I wanted to do something historical, viewed through a modern prism.”
Take a look at the new trailer for Starz drama ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ below, and tell us in the comments if you’ll check out the April 12 premiere!
