Claire Danes & Tom Hiddleston in Thriller 'The Essex Serpent' Trailer
"Lock your doors, say you prayers!" Apple has revealed an official trailer for The Essex Serpent, a British mini-series coming to Apple TV+ this May. Based on the book of the same name by Sarah Perry, which takes place in 1893. The story follows London widow Cora Seaborne who, after her brilliant, domineering husband dies, moves to Essex to investigate reports of a mythical serpent. She forms a bond of science and skepticism with the pastor, but when tragedy strikes, the locals accuse her of attracting the creature. The cast features Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston as the leads, along with Frank Dillane, Clémence Poésy, Hayley Squires, Dixie Egerickx, Jamael Westman, and Michael Jibson. "You can't be my friend and a man of God!" Some strong dialogue in here. This is full of religious undertones and themes, making it a seductive thriller about more than just a serpent. It's no surprise that both Danes & Hiddleston look fantastic in this.
