Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams’ upcoming HBO adaptation of Matt Ruff’s 2016 novel Lovecraft Country will premiere on Sunday, August 16th. And today we have an all-new poster to prove it. Check it out below!
It follows 25-year-old Koren war vet Atticus Black (Da 5 Bloods’ Jonathan Majors), who joins up with his friend Letitia “Leti” Dandridge (Birds of Prey’s Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story’s Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip to find his missing father. Atticus, known for always having a pulp novel in his back pocket, wears his heart on his sleeve despite the daily injustice of living in 1950s Jim Crow America. The trio must survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the malevolent spirits that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.
It’s created and showrun by Misha Green (Underground), with executive producers on the series including Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) and J.J. Abrams (Cloverfield, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), alongside Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller.
It stars Aunjanue Ellis, Abbey Lee, Jada Harris, Wunmi Mosaku, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jamie Chung, Jordan Patrick Smith, Jamie Neumann, Erica Tazel, Mac Brandt, and Tony Goldwyn star.
