The AntiChrist is coming to Comic Con, which is perhaps fitting, as the San Diego convention center has turned into its own version of Hades over the past decade. A&E has released an exclusive look at their new Damien poster, created special for the event. The hour-long drama, based on the popular 70s horror franchise The Omen, will be making its long-awaited debut at the Con on Thursday, July 9 at 6:45 pm in Room 6A.
Appearing in San Diego in support of the new series will be executive producer Glen Mazzara, who is joined by his cast that includes Bradley James as Damien Thorn, Oscar nominee Barbara Hershey, Omid Abtahi and Meganlyn Echikunwoke. Damien follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 motion picture who has grown up seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny...That he is the Antichrist.
Barbara Hershey stars as Ann Rutledge, the world's most powerful woman who has been tasked with making sure Damien fulfills his destiny. Omid Abtahi portrays Amani Golkar, a close colleague of Damien's whose fierce loyalty will be tested when he realizes who his brother-in-arms actually is. Meganlyn Echikunwoke plays Simone Baptiste, a woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when tragedy unexpectedly strikes. Take a look at the Damien Comic Con poster, and then prepare for one apocalypse that doesn't include any zombies.
