Syfy’s ‘Dominion’ Poster Goes Classical for Angel-Human Battle
Ever since Syfy first announced that it would follow up 2010 angel thriller ‘Legion’ with a sequel TV series ‘Dominion,’ we’ve been anxious to check out the post-apocalyptic heaven-scape. Last week’s trailer gave us our clearest look yet at the ongoing angel-human conflict, but the full poster for Syfy’s Dominion’ might be the most iconic imagery yet.
Drawing inspiration from classical and renaissance art, the first full poster for Syfy’s ‘Dominion’ paints a clear portrait of the angels…well, dominion over man. For those looking for more intel on the June 19 premiere touting “Heaven will raise Hell on Earth,” here’s how Syfy officially describes ‘Dominion':
Based on characters from the hit theatrical film ‘Legion’ (2010), ‘Dominion’ is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post–apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25-year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hellbent on their domination escalates.
‘Dominion’ stars Christopher Egan (‘Kings’), Tom Wisdom (‘300‘), Roxanne McKee (‘Game of Thrones‘), Alan Dale (‘LOST‘), Anthony Stewart Head (‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘) and Luke Allen-Gale (‘The Borgias‘).
