AMC has had good luck with comic book adaptations, what with The Walking Dead being TV's most-watched show, so it's no surprise the cable network is going to that well again with Preacher. The new series, which is based on the Vertigo (a DC Comics imprint) comic of the same name, isn't set to premiere until May 22, but AMC has just released the first four minutes of the pilot in order to build anticipation for the series. And build anticipation it does. 

The trailer begins with a delightfully retro sci-fi opening depicting a mysterious supernatural entity careening through space on its way to Earth, eventually finding its way to an African preacher. From there, the brief clip manages to squeeze in an enigmatic dream sequence, some intense gore, some blasphemous vulgarity, and even a little Willie Nelson, with the dark humor of series developers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg felt throughout. In other words, we can't wait to see the rest of this thing. Check out the clip below.
