20th Century Studios has now released a new poster and trailer for the prequel The First Omen. The trailer features unsettling footage played in reverse, set to the haunting melody of “If I Had a Heart” by Fever Ray. And the poster reveals a nun walking through the gates of a church.

The Birth of Evil

The trailer opens with chilling whispers and ominous music, setting the stage for a suspenseful journey. We see glimpses of a young American woman, played by Nell Tiger Free, arriving in Rome to begin her service to the church. However, her faith is soon shaken as she encounters a darkness she can’t explain.

The suspense builds with eerie visuals and cryptic messages as the trailer progresses. We see flashes of strange occurrences, unsettling rituals, and a growing sense of dread. The trailer also hints at a terrifying conspiracy at play, one that aims to bring about the birth of the Antichrist.
