The pilot episode of Starz and Bryan Full’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods will be with us very soon, and we have a new featurette (it’s being sold as a trailer but clearly isn’t) that provides a much better idea of the plot for those that might have been feeling a little lost by the previous promos and teasers.
