HANNIBAL Serves Up Its Second Season Sept 16 On Blu-ray

Hannibal-Season 2Network television’s best show of the last two years, Hannibal, is coming to Blu-ray.  The show’s second season continued its mythology building based off the Thomas Harris novels and deepened its lore.  Every frame, every breath of dialogue is so carefully constructed and it shows.  This show is so good, they’re bringing in elements from Hannibal and Hannibal Rising, two of the weakest novel and film pieces of the collection, for season three and I am super eager to see what they do with them.  Every performer on this show brings their A-game every episode.  And I must say, Mads Mikkelsen has done the impossible in pulling himself up to that Anthony Hopkins Hannibal Lector pedestal that seemed too far of a climb for any performer.  Details on the fantastic second season are below.  Also, pre-order your copy today.

Based on the characters and elements appearing in the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, Hannibal, from Gaumont International Television in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks, stars Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt) as the iconic Hannibal Lecter, Emmy Award® nominee Hugh Dancy (Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie,Elizabeth I, 2005) and Academy Award® nominee Laurence Fishburne (Best Actor in a Leading Role, What’s Love Got to Do with It, 1993).

Premiering to over 4.8 million viewers, Hannibal continues its second season with Will Graham (Dancy) locked in a mental asylum, accused of Hannibal Lecter’s (Mikkelsen) crimes. Jack Crawford (Fishburne) is dealing with his own feelings about Will, and whether his protégé is in fact a cold-blooded killer. With Will locked up, Hannibal becomes Jack’s new consultant on cases.
