Dan Stevens stars in new ‘Legion’ TV spots which question your sanity
Showrunner Noah Hawley didn’t approach Legion like any other superhero TV show and Dan Stevens’ David Haller is truly lost in his mind during the new TV spots promoting the new show.
The FX Show teasers asks the audience: “Does your imagination sometimes take over? Are you sure it’s your imagination?” “If you have power over things and can control things with your mind, then why don’t you have the power to control your mind? Does your mind have a mind of its own?”
Legion will premiere on FX this February 8th. Watch the promos below
Stevens stars alongside Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Katie Aselton, Hamish Linklater, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, and Bill Irwin.
Check out the synopsis at the bottom.
Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens) – a troubled young man who may be more than human.
Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which he must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him being a mutant.
A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy’s concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture perfect suburban life she’s built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.
