The First Omen - Poster

“This child is his way.” Boy do we like an Omen film here at SciFiNow, so we’re particularly excited to see a few Omen Easter Eggs (well, it is almost Easter after all!) in the lastest trailer for The First Omen, the prequel to the classic horror franchise.

Spot them for yourselves here…

The First Omen follows a young American woman who is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church. However, she soon encounters a darkness that causes her to question her own faith and uncovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate. “

Directed by Arkasha Stevenson (in her feature debut, though she has directed episodes of Legion and Channel Zero), the movie is based on characters created by David Seltzer (The Omen), with a story by Ben Jacoby (Bleed) and a screenplay by Tim Smith & Arkasha Stevenson and Keith Thomas (Firestarter).

It stars Nell Tiger Free (Servant), Tawkeef Barhom (Mary Magdalene), Sonia Braga (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Ralph Ineson (The Northman), and Bill Nighy (Living).

The movie also has some impressive producers behind it, including David S. Goyer (FoundationHellraiser) and Keith Levine (The Night House).

The First Omen will be released in cinemas on 5 April.
