Prime Video Delays ‘Citadel’ Trailer After Greece Train Crash – Variety

Prime Video has delayed the release of the trailer for its global spy series ‘Citadel’ following a train crash in Greece.

Specific details of the show are still limited, but a first look from last month featured stars Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden ready to do battle in what looks like a luxury train. The trailer, which was set to drop on Wednesday, reportedly features a train wreck.

Naturally, Prime Video will be cautious in coming out with the trailer given that a devastating train crash in Greece on Tuesday night has so far killed at least 36 people, according to the BBC.

The passenger train was carrying 350 people when it collided with a freight train near the town of Larissa in northern Greece.

A statement from Prime Video released Wednesday morning read: “Out of respect for our international community and in light of yesterday’s devastating news from Greece, we respectfully continue to share the official trailer for ‘Citadel’. “

The streamer said he will share a new launch date for the trailer in the coming days.

Prime Video is betting big on “Citadel” and positioning it as a global TV event. The streamer is launching a “mothership” show as well as two local language satellite series set in India and Italy. Produced by Russo Brothers’ AGBO and showrunner David Weil, the show also stars Stanley Tucci, Lesley Manville and a host of international stars such as Varun Dhawan and Matilda De Angelis. “Citadel” will air on April 28.

Here’s an official synopsis below:

Eight years ago, Citadel fell. The independent global spy agency – charged with keeping everyone safe and secure – has been taken down by agents of Manticore, a powerful syndicate manipulating the world from the shadows.

Until one night, when Mason is found by his former Citadel colleague, Bernard Orlick (Tucci), who desperately needs his help to stop Manticore from establishing a new world order. Mason searches for his former partner, Nadia, and the two spies embark on a mission that takes them across the world to stop Manticore, while dealing with a relationship built on secrets, lies, and dangerous love. but eternal. .
