First Look: The Power of ‘The Exorcist’s Comic-Con Poster Compels You
Between Lucifer, Preacher, Outcast, the sinfully short-lived Damien and what is going on in politics, the Devil certainly is having his moment these days. And now, he’s taking a new form with an old name in Fox’s upcoming drama based on the classic novel and film, The Exorcist.
Instead of Regan and pea soup (although the pilot does feature some viscous vomit and a nice nod to the horror gem), this tale centers on Fr. Tomas Ortega (Sense8‘s Alfonso Herrera) and his efforts to help a mother (Oscar winner Geena Davis) with a potential case of demonic possession within her family. It’s as scary as hell and so is the key-art poster, which will be up for grabs during Comic-Con International this week at Fox’s Booth. Take a look at it here…you can almost hear the Tubular Bells, huh?
And if you’re heading to San Diego this week, The Exorcist will be having a pilot screening and cast panel (moderated by yours truly) on Friday, July 22 and 6 pm PT in Room 6A. In addition, the cast will be signing copies of this poster at the Fox Booth beforehand from 4:40-5:15 pm PT. No word on whether anyone will be on hand to bless it, just in case.
The Exorcist premieres Friday, Sept. 23rd at 9/8c on Fox.
