‘Preacher’ producer Seth Rogen goes rogue to get himself into new AMC show’s trailer

Seth Rogen is serving a variety of roles behind the camera on AMC’s upcoming Preacher series, both developing and producing the adaptation of the celebrated comic book series and co-directing the first episode, among other duties. What he isn’t doing, however, is appearing in the show.

Until now, that is.

In a new video released by AMC, the Pineapple Express and This is the End star re-creates the first trailer for Preacher by playing every character that appears in the footage and offering up a DIY version of the series preview. And the results are, well …

You should probably just see it for yourself.

Developed and produced by Rogen and his frequent collaborator, Evan Goldberg, Preacher adapts the groundbreaking comic book series of the same name written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Steve Dillon. Breaking Bad writer and producer Sam Catlin co-developed the series and will serve as showrunner on Preacher, but it seems safe to assume that neither Goldberg nor Catlin had much to do with Rogen’s handmade trailer for the show.

Featuring Dominic Cooper (The Devil’s DoubleCaptain America: The First Avenger) in the title role, Preacher follows a small-town Texas preacher named Jesse Custer who gains an extraordinary ability that sets him off on a wild adventure. Along the way, he teams up with his tough-as-nails ex-girlfriend Tulip (played by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress Ruth Negga) and an Irish rogue named Cassidy (Misfits actor Joseph Gilgun), who has a dark secret of his own, and encounters a host of characters from Heaven, Hell, and everywhere in between.

AMC recently released the first five minutes of the pilot episode of Preacher, offering a peek at what the series has in store for audiences.

Preacher premieres at 10 p.m. ET on Sunday on AMC.

Like The Mandalorian? Then you must read these Star Wars bounty hunter books
Boba Fett in action in cover art for War of the Bounty Hunters.

Longtime fans will surely be hoping that Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise will capitalize on the strong reception of Andor as The Mandalorian -- Disney+'s flagship series -- finally makes its return early next month with season 3. The latter series gave a refreshing look at the vast Star Wars universe through the lens of a gritty amalgamation of the sci-fi and Western genres.

Din Djarin and Grogu's one-off and overarching bounty hunter-themed adventures show the creativity Star Wars is capable of, but the franchise has similarly engaging exploits off the screen as well. From comic books to novels, bounty hunters and the crime syndicates of the galaxy make for some worthwhile side stories sure to satisfy invested fans of the space opera. From Legends tales from the likes of Dark Horse Comics to mainline Disney-era canon under Marvel Comics, there are several fitting bounty hunter books to prepare for The Mandalorian season 3.

I’m a lifelong Marvel fan. After Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, I’m done with the MCU
Multiple Ant-Mans look confused in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

This past weekend, the 31st (!) Marvel movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, was released to thunderous indifference. While the film grossed over $100 million at the box office, the critical and audience response has been tepid. It's the lowest-ranking Marvel film on Rotten Tomatoes and didn't achieve the "A" Cinemascore that was almost customary with every MCU release prior to the pandemic.

Marvel fans have been here before. Phase Four, which started with Black Widow and ended with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, was a notoriously rocky period when the broken cogs began to show in Marvel's well-oiled machine. Kevin Feige, the grand architect behind Disney's lucrative product line, er, movie division, recognized this and promised that Phase 5, which would start with the third Ant-Man film, would offer a clarity of purpose and, everyone hoped, a restoration of the quality and enthusiasm seen in past Marvel movies. What everyone got instead was an overstuffed CGI fest that was more intent on vaguely teasing future movies and promoting Disney+ content than telling an entertaining story.
