Remember, remember the 5th of November. Guy Fawkes and the attempted assassination of King James I are the subject of Gunpowder, a three-part mini-series that already aired on the BBC earlier this month and is now coming to HBO in December. The mini-series stars Kit Harington as Robert Catesby, the real mastermind behind the Gunpowder plot, along with Liv Tyler as Anne Vaux and Tom Cullen as Guy Fawkes. Directed by J Blakeson (The 5th Wave, The Disappearance of Alice Creed), it looks like it should be gritty and violent enough to attract more than a few curious Game of Thrones fans. Gunpowder premieres on HBO on December 18th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
