The 1976 horror flick The Omen told the story of a married couple, Robert and Katherine, who are haunted by grief after losing their newborn baby. They welcome a mysterious orphan named Damien into their family. However, their newfound hope is soon shaken by cryptic warnings from Father Brennan, who suspects Damien harbours a dark secret. As unsettling events unfold, Robert struggles with the confusion that Damien may not be who he seems.

Now, Paramount Pictures delves into the chilling origin story, unravelling the past where these nightmares were established. Prepare to face the abyss, for within its depths lie the answers you crave, twisted with the darkness that generated them.

The First Omen story

An ocean away from home, a young woman with a heart full of hope arrives in Rome, ready to embrace a life of service. But the Eternal City holds secrets older than time—secrets that gnaw at the edges of her faith. As she investigates the whispers of darkness, she unearths a conspiracy more terrifying than any scripture could foretell—a plot to birth a horror beyond human comprehension.

The trailer

The trailer gives us hints about what Sonia Braga and Bill Nighy will do in the movie. Nell Tiger Free plays the main good character, while Bill Nighy plays a bad guy who wants to bring the antichrist into the world. The trailer doesn't mention what the other actors will do yet.


About The Omen franchise

The Omen franchise began its chilling journey in 1976 with the original film, followed by two sequels that delved deeper into the antichrist's reign, Damien: Omen II in 1978 and Omen III: The Final Conflict in 1981. In 2006, the franchise saw a chilling reimagining with a new adaptation of the original film, simply titled 'The Omen'. Now, in 2024, The First Omen takes us back to the very beginning, serving as a prequel to the 1976 horror classic.
