A new TV tie-in paperback edition of The Alienist was released last week by Random House in anticipation of TNT’s upcoming adaptation due to premiere on January 22nd. The new cover features the three stars of the show — Daniel Bruhl as Dr Kreizler, Dakota Fanning as Sara Howard, and Luke Evans as John Moore — along with some of the key artefacts featured in the case. A copy of the cover can be seen to the right.
In addition, a third trailer for the adaptation of The Alienist was released last week as well. As with the previous trailers, it’s clear that this will be a dark and atmospheric adaptation. I would be curious to know what long time readers of the Alienist books feel about the trailers that have been released so far. How do you feel about the changes that are evident from the trailers that have been released so far? Are you looking forward to the adaptation?
