Fox has dropped the first full-length trailer for 24: Live Another Day, their upcoming “special-event” 12-episode mini-series. Fans will be happy to see those split screens back, along with what appears to be Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) at his most badass. Bauer is almost marketed as the bad guy in this extended piece, which sees him come out of hiding in London to head off a massive terrorist attack while being hunted down by American forces dispatched by President James Heller.
Starring Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, Benjamin Bratt, William Devane, Tate Donovan, Yvonne Strahovski, Stephen Fry, and Michelle Fairley.
Official synopsis for 24: Live Another Day:
Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland). Four years ago, Jack was a fugitive from justice. Now an exile, he nevertheless is willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster. Tracking Jack are CIA head STEVE NAVARRO (Benjamin Bratt, “Law & Order”); CIA agent KATE MORGAN (Yvonne Strahovski, “Dexter”), who is both resourceful and ruthless; JORDAN REED (Giles Matthey, “Jobs”), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and ERIK RITTER (Gbenga Akinnagbe, “The Wire”), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative. Calling the shots is JAMES HELLER (William Devane, “The Dark Knight Rises”), now President of the United States. Heller is flanked by his Chief of Staff MARK BOUDREAU (Tate Donovan, “Damages”), who is married to Heller’s daughter – Jack’s former flame, AUDREY (Kim Raver, “Revolution”). Meanwhile, a hardened CHLOE O’BRIAN (Mary Lynn Rajskub, “Firewall”), Bauer’s CTU confidante, is now working underground with high-profile hacker ADRIAN CROSS (Michael Wincott, “The Crow”). Guest stars on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY include Golden Globe Award nominee Stephen Fry (“Alice in Wonderland,” BONES) and Michelle Fairley (“Game of Thrones”). The harrowing day will have Jack attempting to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever.
24: Live Another Day premieres on Fox on May 5th.
