Amazon Video released a trailer for their new original series, “Hand of God,” at Comic Con today. It revealed a rare, vulnerable side to the formidable Ron Perlman, of “Drive” fame. The seasoned actor sobs by the bedside of his son after the latter has attempted suicide. There, he has a spiritual experience, hearing what he believes to be the voice of God speaking to him through his comatose son, encouraging him to hunt down the man who raped his beloved offspring and guiding him throughout the trailer as he strives to fulfill this mission.

The series’ official synopsis reads: “‘Hand of God’ stars Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman (‘Sons of Anarchy’) as the honorable justice Pernell Harris. After suffering a mental breakdown, the law-bending judge goes on a vigilante quest – lead by ‘visions’ he believes are sent by God – to find the rapist who tore his family apart. The show, created by Ben Watkins (‘Burn Notice’), marks the television debut of renowned filmmaker Marc Forster (‘World War Z’).”
