There's teasing....and then there's teasing to the point where we begin to lose interest, and that's frankly where we've been at with Guillermo del Toro's "The Strain." FX launched a lengthy and often tedious viral campaign for the film showing little in the way of actual footage, but that has all changed as today we know have a proper trailer, and guess what? We're excited about this again.

The Strain

There's teasing... and then there's teasing to the point where we begin to lose interest, and that's frankly where we've been at with Guillermo del Toro's "The Strain." FX launched a lengthy and often tedious viral campaign for the film showing little in the way of actual footage, but that has all changed as today we now have a proper trailer, and guess what? We're excited about this again.

Based on the book series written by del Toro and Chuck Hogan, this new show brings together a pretty terrific cast — Corey Stoll, Mía Maestro, David Bradley, Natalie Brown, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Sean Astin, Richard Sammel, Ben Hyland, Javier Botet, Doug Jones — for a story set in a world where an viral outbreak has lead to vampirism. And it's not hot hunky Southern vampires like in "True Blood," but typically freaky del Toro-esque bloodsuckers, coupled with a procedural aspect it seems. Looks like a lot fun.

"The Strain" arrives on July 13th. Watch below. [Live For Films]
