SyFy's trailer for 'Childhood's End' refuses to show you the aliens Video Description

Originally published in 1953, Clarke's novel describes the peaceful takeover of Earth by an alien race who promise an end to all war, disease, and hunger — as long as humanity agrees to abide by their rules. Confusing matters further, their leader, an enigmatic figure voiced by Game of Thrones star Charles Dance, refuses to let himself be seen by the humans he rules. The mystery of the alien's identity is central to the novel, and director Nick Hurran has pledged to remain faithful to Clarke's vision of the aliens.
