NBC just unveiled the first trailer for its upcoming "Constantine" TV series, which is based on a DC Comics property and stars Matt Ryan ("Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior" as the title character. Check out the trailer below.
"Constantine" centers on John Constantine, an enigmatic and irreverent con-man, who becomes a reluctant supernatural detective and is thrust into the role of defending the world against dark forces from beyond. When the daughter of a late friend is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her.
The new show is written by David Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) and directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent). It co-stars Lucy Griffiths as Liv, Harold Perrineau as the angel Manny and Charles Halford as Constantine's friend Chas.
I'm a little surprised to see who is writing the show though. Not that he gets any credit for Man of Steel, but Batman Begins is a solid credit to have to your name. I think the low quality effects are what get me the most though. Not that I could do any better, but hopefully if the show turns out to be any good they'll increase the budget on the effects. Even so, I've endured shows with much worse.
Lol, I don't actually care. I just thought it was a little funny. I would have scrolled past it, too. In fact, it took me a second to find it so that I could be sure that was where I had posted it. I'm not going to sincerely whine about "people not listening to me!" or anything.
Back to the show though. I want this to be good. I even enjoyed the cheese-fest that was the movie. Regardless of stupid Shia being in it. Tilda Swinton was pretty cool. And regardless of how you feel about Hannibal, it's at least a sliver of proof that NBC is willing to let shows get away with more than they used to. So here's to hoping for something good to emerge from this, while realistically keeping my expectations to a minimum.
^^People tend to tune out when someone posts eighty times on one thread about nothing. Sure, perhaps this news was buried in there somewhere, but you have no one to blame but yourself when people can't find the diamond within a mountain of turds.
Anyway, I'm going to make the movie a new download, but to be honest, Reeves is terrible, unwatchable actor. Even his voice acting blows. He has all the appeal of cold, wet wood, which puts him somewhere south of Paul Walker, who, despite his innate limitations as a human-looking cyborg, was actually likeable.
Hell, there's about one Reeves movie I can stand, and that's Bill and Ted's. The first one. No bloody a, b, c, or d.
Thanks for this posting. It doesn't have Sputter-Man (which was a piss-poor movie), X Minion, Gagzilla or any of the other thoroughfare that Alex has been churning like an irritable bowel movement about to expunge itself from Dark8, who would be here tonight, but he got a new Klan sheet for his mum on Mum's Day.
