My selection for this edition of Retro Trailers is inspired by the awful news that a "Hannibal" TV series is currently in development. Reportedly, this would deal with Lecter's early career as a serial killer and his run-ins with FBI agent Will Graham - the protagonist of Red Dragon.
This series is being bled dry. I don't have any real opposition to Ridley Scott's Hannibal or Brett Ratner's Red Dragon (it's probably the best work of his sad career), but the Hannibal Rising prequel was an abominable mess and I think it's about time we put the beast to rest.
Frankly, Lecter was never more interesting than he was in his ten minutes of screentime in The Silence of the Lambs. Now 20 years old, the film could be called one of the first classics to come out of the 90's. It also represents some of the best work ever by many involved - onscreen and off.
A young FBI cadet must confide in an incarcerated and manipulative killer to receive his help on catching another serial killer who skins his victims.
