A terrifying new trailer for 'The First Omen' has been released.

The Arkasha Stevenson-directed movie centres on a young American woman who is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church.

While she's in the Italian capital, the woman encounters a darkness that causes her to question her own faith. The character discovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate.

The new trailer features some brief clips from the upcoming movie and hints at the heart-racing moments that will await fans of the 'Omen' franchise.

'The First Omen' is based on characters created by David Seltzer and stars the likes of Nell Tiger Free, Tawfeek Barhom, Sonia Braga, Ralph Ineson, Charles Dance and Bill Nighy.

The upcoming psychological horror film is a prequel to the classic horror franchise, and is due to open in cinemas on April 5.

In 2023, Nell teased details about the new horror movie.

The 24-year-old actress - who played Leanne Grayson in the TV series 'Servant' - told The Hollywood Reporter: "I can tell you that we have finished shooting. We have made the movie. It matches 'Servant' with how much I truly loved the project and how excited I am about it."

Despite this, Nell acknowledged that the two projects are "wildly different", adding that she feels "very proud" of 'The First Omen'.

She said: "Even though there are notes and elements that are similar to 'Servant' and Leanne, it’s so wildly different. So it’s going to be really cool. At least I hope it’s going to be really cool. I’m very proud of it."
