New Poster for Da Vinci's Demons

Da Vinci's Demons (Starz, April 2013)

A new — and rather dramatic (in our opinion) — promotional poster for the Starz original drama Da Vinci's Demons has been released by the cable network (right; click for larger image). The tagline: "Genius cannot be contained."

In a world where thought and faith are controlled, one man fights to set knowledge free …

The secret history of Leonardo Da Vinci's tantalizing life reveals a portrait of a young man tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He is a heretic intent on exposing the lies of religion. An insurgent seeking to subvert an elitist society. A bastard son who yearns for legitimacy with his father.

He finds himself in the midst of a storm that has been brewing for centuries. A conflict between truth and lies, religion and reason, past and future. His aspirations are used against him by the opposing forces of the time — luring him into a game of seduction where those who despise his intellect need him most.

Leonardo (played by Tom Riley) must take up the fight against foes who use history to suppress the truth. A hero armed only with genius,
Da Vinci stands alone against the darkness within, and the darkness without.

Facing an uncertain future, his quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing as he explores the fringes of his own sanity. Da Vinci throws himself into his genius and emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and propels it into light.

Da Vinci's Demons premieres on Starz at 10 PM (ET/PT) on April 12th, 2013.
