STARZ has released the first trailer for the upcoming American Gods series, based on the book by Neil Gaiman.

American Gods has been translated into over 30 languages and earned numerous accolades including Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel. The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.

STARZ continues to announce great casting choices, and seeing them for the first time in this trailer, gives me high hopes that this is going to be a series that is going to kick-ass when it debuts next year.
