All of the trailers were released during San Diego Comic-Con! Amazon Prime joined in by sharing a first look at their adaptation of The Man in the High Castle, Philip K. Dick’s alternate-history novel in which the Nazis won World War II. They’ve split not only the United States, but most of the world, with Japan, and freedom and liberty are the kinds of things you can see only on old film reels.
Amazon greenlit a full first season several months ago, after the pilot was the most-watched on Amazon Prime. Ridley Scott is producing the series, with Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files) executive-producing. Check out the trailer, with cool visuals of alternate-history U.S. monuments, as well as glimpses of stars Rufus Sewell and Alexa Davalos. Plus, there are some hints about the eponymous Man in the High Castle, who the cast discussed at SDCC.
The Man in the High Castle is set to premiere in fall 2015; in the meantime, check out The Folio Society’s new edition, with gorgeous illustrations by Shan Jiang.
