Starz has released some new videos for Ronald Moore's upcoming Outlander series, including one that gives us a sample of the music for the drama. Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica) is composing the score for drama, and he confirmed via Twitter that the adventurous and thrilling drum-pounding music we're hearing behind the above video is our first earful of the Outlander score!
McCreary had a very positive reaction to the series earlier this month, and he also promised what I'm sure many of us are hoping to hear...
Two words: Canna. Wait.
Next up, this other preview for Outlander focuses on Claire's troubling situation. She's out of her time and drawing attention in her new surroundings...
Starz hasn't exactly been shy about promoting their upcoming Outlander series. But with a few weeks to go, and the world premiere set to take place during Comic-Con this week, it's evident that the premium cable channel is building up even more momentum for Ronald Moore's TV adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's beloved series.
The above preview focuses on Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a British WWII combat nurse who's on vacation with her husband when she visits a mysterious rock formation and finds herself thrown back through time to the 18th century. As the preview indicates, Claire's something of a mystery to the people she encounters in the past. That includes the suspicious Dougal MacKenzie (Graham McTavish), the curious Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek) and the gallant warrior to whom Claire is forced to marry, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). We see Jamie telling Claire she has a nice touch, and later he seems unconcerned with where she comes from, only that she's here now.
Jamie and Dougal are among the kilted men featured in this photo, shared on the Outlander Facebook page today...
Kilts! Plaid! Weapons! Beards! Je Suis Prest.
While Outlander doesn't premiere on Starz until August, the first episode will make its world premiere in San Diego during Comic-Con this week! For those who won't get to attend the premiere event, you'll still have an opportunity to see the first episode early, as Starz has confirmed that they'll be releasing Episode 1 ("Sassenach") online a week ahead of its Starz debut, which is set for August 9.
