Watch: New Trailer For HBO Miniseries 'Parade's End' With Benedict Cumberbatch & Rebecca Hall

The Playlist By Tess Hofmann | The Playlist January 22, 2013 at 10:39AM

Two weeks after announcing that they would be airing the popular U.K. miniseries “Parade’s End” and releasing an impressive teaser trailer, HBO is letting viewers have a longer peak at the imported literary adaptation with a new full-length promo. It similarly highlights the devastating pseudo-love triangle between Christoper Tietjens (Benedict Cumberbatch), his adulterous wife Sylvia (Rebecca Hall) and the alluring young suffragette Valentine Wannop (Adelaide Clemens), but this extended version gives a better feel of what looks like a chilling performance by Cumberbatch, whose character is crippled by allegiance to an outdated moral code.

Two weeks after announcing that they would be airing the popular U.K. miniseries “Parade’s End” and releasing an impressive teaser trailer, HBO is letting viewers have a longer peak at the imported literary adaptation with a new full-length promo. It similarly highlights the devastating pseudo-love triangle between Christoper Tietjens (Benedict Cumberbatch), his adulterous wife Sylvia (Rebecca Hall) and the alluring young suffragette Valentine Wannop (Adelaide Clemens), but this extended version gives a better feel of what looks like a chilling performance by Cumberbatch, whose character is crippled by allegiance to an outdated moral code.

And while some may draw simple comparisons between the hit show “Downton Abbey, and “Parade’s End” -- both are set in the World War I era and explore class distinctions -- this seems to offering a different, and perhaps slightly more epic experience all around.

This heart-wrenchingly repressed and romantic trailer certainly points to something perhaps bit more deeply woven, and we’ll certainly be watching when the series airs for three consecutive nights starting Feb. 26th at 9 pm.
