"The Strain" is a high concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

The Strain premieres July 2014 on FX.

First. And Del Toro is an overhyped moviemaker. Subpar at best.

Pan's Labyrinth was a masterpiece, the Hellboy movies were freaking awesome, and Pacific Rim was badass. How is he overrated?

Guillermo Del Toro is da man! Love his films!

Del Toro is a good story teller, and that is like, my opinion, man. The Strain Trilogy had me sucked in from the very beginning.

Blade 2 was fantastic so I can't wait to see how the vamps in this look.

glad to see him from house of cards, will give this a good watch with some good acting.

@doopie par would be completely average. He's below that.

@chewish Perlman was fun to watch, but the plotholes and comically awful SFX just doesn't do it for me.

I'll give you Pan's Labyrinth.

P-Rim was destruction/RobotvAlien-porn(and people complain about Man of Steel) riddled with plot holes and a useless, tiny "plot".

Blade II was meh.

I can go on with everything he has produced/written.

Just glad he left the Hobbit early on.

Looking forward to this.

...NEXT should be At the Mountains of Madness for del Toro.

Corey Stoll is the man. Im happy hes starting to become more successful
Doopie - 1/9/2014, 1:41 PM
