The folks at CBS have been taunting us with little tidbits of info and images from their adaptation of Stephen King’s UNDER THE DOME but this morning we’ve got the full trailer. No more hinting at things, we really get to see what they have in store and it looks all good.
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chesterâ€™s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardenerâ€™s hand is severed as â€śthe domeâ€ť comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and whenâ€”or ifâ€”it will go away.
Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizensâ€”town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physicianâ€™s assistant at the hospital, a selectwoman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothingâ€”even murderâ€”to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isnâ€™t just short. Itâ€™s running out.
This 13 week event stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Nicholas Strong, Jolene Purdy, and Aisha Hinds and premieres on June 24th.
