Amazon Prime has dropped a new teaser trailer for their upcoming romantic drama fantasy series Carnival Row. Over the course of Comic-Con last weekend, we saw a couple of character videos from this provocative new entry in the streaming landscape. Now we get to see more from the actual show as the sneak peek sets out to prove that love isn't dead.
This teaser is set against Billie Eilish's smash hit single 'Bury a Friend', which gives the footage a creepy bit of gravitas and dramatic weight. The show is headlined by Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne. We learn that on Carnival Row, different is dangerous, and monsters are very real.
Amazon Prime Video releases this new teaser trailer, finally giving fans a first look at what to expect from the first season. Orland Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) star in Carnival Row, a series set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. This growing population struggles to coexist with humans, forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom.
But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette harbors a secret that endangers Philo's world during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.
Actress, musician and style icon Cara Delevingne is one of the most recognizable faces in the world. Since her film debut in Joe Wright's Anna Karenina in 2012, Delevingne has continued to make her mark on the big screen. She's since starred in Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, DC Comics' Suicide Squad, Chris Foggin's Kids in Love, Joe Wright's Pan, Jake Schrier's Paper Town based on the book by John Green, Michael Winterbottom's The Face of an Angel and Matthew Cullen's London Fields. Delevingne's upcoming projects include Alex Ross Perry's Her Smell and Mitja Okorn's Life in a Year. This fall, Delevingne will make her small screen debut in the highly anticipated Amazon Original series Carnival Row. The eight-episode fantasy drama series will feature Delevingne as Vignette Stonemoss, opposite Orlando Bloom.
Delevingne has a large passion for music and is a talented singer and drummer. Her Pharrell Williams produced song I Feel Everything was featured on the Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets soundtrack. With over 41 million followers on Instagram and over 10 million on Twitter, Delevingne continues to be an influential voice on social media. She often uses her platform to speak out about issues on mental health, women's rights and animal conservation.
Joining Bloom and Delevingne, the series also stars David Gyasi (Interstellar) as Agreus, a mysteriously wealthy faun who moves into an affluent human neighborhood in defiance of the social order, Karla Crome (Under the Dome) as Tourmaline, a quick-witted faerie poet driven from her war-torn homeland, Indira Varma (Game of Thrones) as Piety Breakspear, the regal and cunning matriarch of the powerful family that rules the city of The Burgue, and Tamzin Merchant (Salem) as Imogen Spurnrose, a young woman who sees in Agreus an opportunity to turn her aristocratic family's fading fortunes around.
Carnival Row is from Legendary Television, with executive producers Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Eli Stone), Rene Echevarria (Star Trek, Teen Wolf, Castle, Medium), Jon Amiel, Orlando Bloom, and Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans). Beacham's A Killing on Carnival Row, on which the project is based, appeared on the very first installment of the Hollywood Blacklist in 2005.
