INSERT OBLIGATORY SIMPSONS MOVIE REFERENCE HERE

A small town cut off from the rest of the world by virtue of an enormous, mysterious transparent dome? That's the kind of classic sci-fi premise we like to hear. More pleasing is the fact that new CBS series Under the Dome comes adapted from Stephen King's 2009 novel, and involves the likes of Steven Spielberg, Lost's Brian K. Vaughan, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Niels Arden Oplev.

Here's the first full trailer for the series, which deals with the moment of impact, if you will, flashes a few character faces at us, and shows the startling effect the dome has on the New England town's cow community. What's behind the arrival of the dome? Well, if the trailer music is anything to go by, our money's on the Cylons...

I really enjoyed reading under the dome but cant say I was too thrilled with the explanation of how it got there. I know it's more about the characters but I kind of wish it was left unanswered, maybe it'll work better for me on screen

Aah, you beat me to the obtuse Simpsons Movie jokes...

Also, I'm sure Lapidus will be able to get them out of there somehow.

Right on!
Lapidus FTW!

I wish they had the shot of the squirrel running across the street, just to start it off.

Yeah I don't wanna ruin either but man I must say if there is one overused explanation for everything, it's @&$?>£, though there was kind of a twist to it. But not much.

it's not leaking, it's overflowing...

This is going to be incredibly sincere and *intense* isn't it? I can just tell.

Brian K. Vaughan? THERE WITH BELLS ON.

One thing that is certain, they will know that going in, and will probably alter it to suit the show more than the book.

The Midwich Cuckoos. Doesn't anyone in this country read British SF anymore?

Can't they just dig under the dome?
