First Trailer: HBO’s “The Young Pope”

The first trailer has been released for “Youth” and “The Great Beauty” director Paolo Sorrentino’s miniseries “The Young Pope”.

Jude Law, Diane Keaton, Silvio Orlando, Scott Shepherd, Cecile de France, Javier Camara, Ludivine Sagnier, Toni Bertorelli and James Cromwell star in the series about the crisis of faith of Pope Pius XIII (Law) – a man so conservative in his choices as to border on obscurantism, yet full of compassion towards the weak and poor.

The series begins airing on Sky in the U.K. in October, and will debut in the U.S. on HBO on a date TBA.
