“The First Omen” Trailer Revealed for the 1976 Horror Classic Prequel, Coming in 2024

MOVIE NEWS – The eagerly awaited prequel to the 1976 horror sensation, “The Omen,” titled “The First Omen,” is set to hit theaters in 2024. The film’s captivating first trailer, now available with dubbing, introduces us to Margaret (Nell Tiger Free), a woman journeying to Rome with a commitment to embrace the church. However, she soon encounters an insidious evil.

 

Joining Tiger Free in this horror venture are Bill Nighy, Ralph Ineson, and Sônia Braga, under the directorial debut of Arkasha Stevenson. Stevenson collaborates with Tim Smith and Keith Thomas on the screenplay, based on a story by Ben Jacoby.

“The Omen” originally narrated the story of Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) and his wife, Katherine “Kathy” Thorn (Lee Remick), who adopt a boy named Damien (Harvey Spencer Stevens). Following a series of chilling incidents, including Damien causing Kathy’s miscarriage, it’s revealed that Damien is the Antichrist, the son of Satan. Directed by Richard Donner and written by David Seltzer, the original film was a box office hit, grossing over $60 million and spawning three sequels: “Omen II” (1978), “Omen III: The Final Conflict” (1981), and “Omen IV: The Awakening” (1991). A remake followed in 2006 with Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles, and in 2016, A&E launched the TV series “Damien,” based on the original film, though it was cancelled after one season. “The First Omen” marks the series’ first prequel.

The film is set for release on April 5, 2024. Watch the trailer below.
