'Preacher': Watch the first 5 minutes in AMC's preview

Posted on

Matthias Clamer/AMC

What’s the best way to give you a flavor of AMC’s new comic book adaptation Preacher, which premieres May 22? Well, we can tell you that it is a surreal, crazy, mind-bending tale about a small-town Texas cleric (played by Dominic Cooper), who has to simultaneously deal with the return of his nefarious ex-girlfriend (Ruth Negga), the arrival of an alcoholic Irish vampire (Joseph Gilgun), the arse-faced nature of a parishioner (Ian Colletti), and the preacher’s own newfound ability to make everyone do whatever he commands.

We can also advise you to check out the first five minutes of this Sunday’s pilot, which you can see below, and, we feel obliged to point out, features a scene of notable blood spatters. Enjoy!
