2016’s SXSW Film Festival is just around the corner, and they just announced a handful of titles that will premiere at this year’s event. AMC’s highly anticipated Preacher is one of those titles.
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s epic episodic thriller, Preacher, is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who – along with his ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy – is thrust into a crazy world, much bigger than he is. The series is based on a comic book by the same name.

“Though we are still in the thick of programming, each year we release a handful of films to provide an early peek into the festival. These smart, stylish, and diverse offerings from some of the most exciting talent working today reflect what the SXSW audiences have come to expect: great stories, well told,” said Janet Pierson, Head of SXSW Film. “There is an iconic thread emerging, whether the return of beloved Pee-wee; explorations of larger than life characters like Tony Robbins, the imaginary Slenderman, and Preacher; the latest work from Jeff Nichols; and even “Manhood” explored in Chevalier. Audiences are in for a wild ride.”
2016 marks the 23rd year of the festival, which takes place of nine days and hosts more than 500 conference sessions with visionaries from all corners of the entertainment and media industries. FanBolt will be on hand for the festival this year, which takes place from March 11-20 in Austin, TX. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we have more details on Preacher‘s world premiere.
