20th Century has released a new featurette for The First Omen, bringing viewers centuries back to when the first The Omen film hit theaters back in 1976. 

“PhenOMENal” is the word the creatives behind the film used when describing the franchise. According to The First Omen producer Keith Levine, the first installment “shocked and terrified audiences” the moment it was introduced to theaters. 

Serving as a prequel to the 1976 version, director Arkasha Stevenson explained in the clip that the upcoming installment will “answer the question of how Damien comes into existence, and why.” Levine then teased that The First Omen would be a gift to longtime fans, while the new generation of viewers would be in for a terrifying experience.

The First Omen will explore Damien’s origins 

The First Omen will revolve around a young woman who will soon discover a sinister conspiracy to bring about the birth of the Antichrist after she was assigned to work at a church in Rome. 

“When a young American woman is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church, she 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,” the official synopsis reads.

The First Omen stars Nell Tiger Free as Margaret Daino, Bill Nighy as Cardinal Lawrence, Sônia Braga as Sister Silvia, Tawfeek Barhom as Father Gabriel, Maria Caballero as Luz Valez, Ralph Ineson as Father Brennan, and Nicole Sorace as Carlita Skianna.

Based on the characters created by David Seltzer, producers for The First Omen include David S. Goyer and Levine, with Tim Smith, Whitney Brown, and Gracie Wheelan as executive producers. It will be based on a screenplay by Tim Smith, Stevenson, and Keith Thomas.
