Giffing Francis Dolarhyde: The Freak Show

And, last but not least… all that can be said is Holy Shit. They did it. He did it. They transformed him into a grotesque monster and I’m scared to see more like this.

      No doubt about it, RA inhabited “evil” and yeah… chilling is just the word for it!

    Yes, it is amazing how he can go from being gorgeous to hideous as the same character! Good acting, makeup and direction.

      It’s going to be a rollercoaster ride between “Awww, that’s so sweet/sad” and “OMG look at that body!” and “Holy Hell Get Him Away From Me!” LOL

    Great service, J – thank you for all the gifs, and for changing the exposure in them. That way we get to see a few more details.
    I am completely in awe of what Armitage has done with Dolarhyde. If I wasn’t convinced by Hannibal, then I now am. This is going to be majorly interesting in terms of Dolarhyde’s schizophrenia. Ok, yes, and in terms of bumshots.

      Oh, I know. Fantastic trailer, all around. The bum shots were all I could have hoped for, and then some. LOL. But the rest of it! Oh, man… as you know I’ve been excited since Day 1, but this confirmed what I’ve been hoping for… I’m convinced on just a few lines of dialogue and a few minutes of footage that he NAILED it. =)

      Thanks for the reblog! I know… I was just electrified. Both physically and psychologically, pleasantly and unpleasantly. Exactly as I’m sure they intended!

    This trailer really creeped me out……..I know the great actor Mr. Amitage is, but he made my skin crawl here…As I watched, both times, my hubby said I kept moving back from the computer screen…..It just was so awesomely creepy to see……….Guess that is how I will watch the episodes as well…….It was just………….WOW

      Yes, I was torn between leaning in to see every little muscular detail, and pulling back in revulsion. It really was WOW.

    thanks for the gifs, a much safer way for me to take this all in 🙂 It is weird, everyone has jumped on it and i’m just too afraid to click play, i even downloaded it so i would be more in control of how i watch it but still haven’t. And i have watched every single episode of the series to date… Probably why i am so hesitant because i have a feeling of how bad it can be.. sigh. Maybe tonight.

      We are not use to seeing him in a role like this…it is a chilling trailer to say the least, and if the episodes are like this, I see an Emmy nod for him…Just an amazing, yet horrifying thing to see….at least to me….

        that is what i am afraid of, knowing what the show is like actually seeing him embody pure evil extremely well and not being able to forget that ever again… I don’t have any doubt he’ll be good at it, too good for my peace of mind… sigh

        Oh, I’d love to see him nominated for awards on this. And I really hope the “Fannibal” community receives him well!

      Oh, Hari! I won’t lie… it’s pretty scary, but also just awesome. You can get an idea from the gifs all the great footage, but the music will trip you out! And you HAVE to hear RA’s F.D. voice… sigh… so perfect.

        i know the music, they have used the beat of percussion over and over .. and over again 😉 It’s very effective. I will cave, i watched Verger bloody eat his face.. well for a few seconds until i clocked it and looked away before my stomach came back up 😉 I’m more afraid it will tilt my perception of him forever and that this embodiment of evil will always creep up on me whenever i think of him and that i will not be able to believe in any of the softer characters anymore if i see him go this far… I think there is a massive difference between H and what he does, as we mostly don’t see him do it, there was some stabbing and the disgusting eating but that was it, most of it was just imagined or implied. Verger is just nuts and i can’t take the pigs seriously, it’s too OTT. Dolarhyde is just on the edge of reality and possible, more than the other nutters in the show. And i’m afraid with him we will actually see him kill and viciously so, basically become animalistic evil, i just don’t know if i can cope with seeing R like that… I will eventually watch the video tonight and probably watch the interviews after to dilute it. It’s egoistic i know, because the reason i like him so is firstly and before all else that he is such an amazing actor and yet it’s the very thing that makes me want to run away from this…

          Yeah, I can see your point… like Anthony Hopkins. He did Hannibal Lecter so well that forever in my mind, that’s Hannibal Lecter and he creeps me out. LOL So it’s a valid concern, but hopefully there is enough of the redemption and empathy with Dolarhyde that it will “wash out” the monster aspect enough so as not to permanently ruin our image of RA.

          so with you on Hopkins! 🙂 and yeah i just have to hold on tight to my SD memory of him maybe, that’ll soothe all evil away..

          I think he said he doesn’t kill, on screen, or we don’t see him kill. Hey, not to worry – you’re going to watch this, remember it, and then see him as loving father in Fire in the Brain, and he will make you believe in both.

          Its a toughie, I hear ya..First saw him as Thorin, then Thornton, then Porter and a host of others….Fell in love with Thorin….It was tough watching this trailer at first, but the more I view it, its a thing of beauty, and the music just…………..well….its awesome..And remember, its Richard Armitage, who we all love, in yet another role that he will be excellent in………………albeit it a bit violet and creepy………..and sinister……….ye he did show a wee bit of a soft side there…………..
