The latest clip from the premiere of the forthcoming second season of the critically acclaimed “Hannibal” is a bloody mess, with Mads Mikkelsen’s cannibal serial-killer duking it out with Laurence Fishburne’s head of the FBI Behavioral Science Unit.
The new season finds Will Graham behind bars and Lecter, the real culprit, taking over as FBI profiler and thus free to collect more bodies. The clip suggests Fishburne’s Crawford has discovered the truth of his psychopathic criminal activities and confronts him after a home-cooked meal (that was likely filled with witty puns). Of course the ruthless killer outsmarts the physically stronger Crawford, but only after displaying an unsurprising talent for wielding sharp objects.
The following should keep your blood-thirst in check until the show’s premiere on February 28th, on NBC.
