Amazon’s upcoming “Carnival Row” promises neo-noir fantasy adventures

by The Collected Mutineer

If Orlando Bloom is in something, then that’s pretty much a guarantee that I’ll watch it. And if that something is a Victorian fantasy adventure, so much the better.

Amazon Prime’s upcoming show Carnival Row has been popping up with teaser trailers for a while now and debuted an interactive experience at SDCC 2019. We’ve recently been blessed a new full-length trailer and blurb that make us here at the Collective even more excited to explore this neo-noir world. Check out the official press release and trailer below!

Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) star in Carnival Row, a series set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man. This growing population struggles to coexist with humans — forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette harbors a secret that endangers Philo’s world during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.

Carnival Row will be available to stream on Amazon beginning August 30, 2019.
