THE STAND: Randall Flagg & Mother Abagail Face-Off In New Promo For CBS' Stephen King Adaptation

CBS All Access has released a new trailer for its adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand, which is set to premiere next month. See Mother Abagail and Randall Flagg come face-to-face in some new footage...

The re-adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand is set to premiere on December 17, and CBS All Access has now released a 60-second promo which contains quite a bit of new footage.

As its title suggests, "The Prophet vs. The Dark Man" teaser focuses on the opposing forces of light and darkness represented by "Mother" Abagail Freemantle (Whoopie Goldberg) and the demonic Randall Flagg (Alexander Skarsgård). Although the two never actually meet in person (in the book, anyway), they confront one another through visions as they attempt to sway the loyalties of the main characters.

The promo also features some new shots of the Boulder Free Zone community led by James Marsden's Stu Redman, and Lloyd Henreid (Nat Wolff) introducing "The Walkin' Dude" to his followers at New Vegas.

For those unfamiliar with King's novel, The Stand deals with a global pandemic (yes, it's a scarily prescient tale) known as "Captain Tripps" which wipes out 99% of the world's population. The survivors are immune to the disease, but are ultimately forced to fight each other as some are drawn to a the light (Abagail), and others to darkness (Flagg).

New Mutants director Josh Boone, who was the driving force behind all previous attempts to adapt the book, will direct, write, and produce the upcoming series.

Do you guys plan on checking out this new take on The Stand? Let us know in the comments.
