Hark the herald angels sing, glory to… the Antichrist?
A&E on Tuesday took a spooky approach to the holiday season by unveiling a teaser for Damien, its upcoming follow-up to the 1976 film The Omen.
Starring Bradley James (Homeland) in the title role, Damien follows the mysterious child from the classic horror movie, who has grown up and must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist.
Damien premieres in 2016. Press PLAY on the teaser below, in which the titular character is ominously told, “It’s all for you.”
