Nucky Thompson is not in for an easy time of things in Season 2 of “Boardwalk Empire,” if the first trailer for the new season is any indication.
In the nearly wordless — OK, there’s one word, “Nucky,” repeated numerous times — teaser, Mr. Thompson (Steve Buscemi) is beset from all sides from people seeking favors. Outside the growing mob around him, the show’s other regular cast members all cast variously suspicious/angry/unbelieving glances in his direction.
It doesn’t tip any sort of hand about what’s to come in the season, but it’s a fantastic piece of mood-setting. “Boardwalk Empire” premieres Sunday, Sept. 25.
What do you think of the trailer?
