NBC Has Released the First Trailer For Constantine and it Looks Bloody Fantastic
Last week NBC announced that Constantine was being picked up by the network for a full series order, today they give us our first look at what to expect. NBC will be pairing Constantine up with it’s other supernatural hit show, Grimm, on Friday nights. Normally i’d be a little worried about a new show I have high hopes for being put in the rating challenged Friday night time slot, but Constantine should be able to keep much of the viewership from the Grimm audience considering the similar nature of the shows. Plus Constantine should already have a decent sized built in audience given the popularity of the comic book series. I know everyone at WPR is massively excited for John Constantine to vanquish evil on the small screen this fall. All i know is if this trailer is any indication of the overall quality of this show, we’re all in for quite a treat, cause it looks bloody amazing
Constantine is based on the DC/Vertigo comic series Hellblazer, that follows Englishman John Constantine as he faces off against dark supernatural forces and anything else that goes bump in the night. Starring Matt Ryan who unlike Keanu Reeves, is actually English (fans rejoice!!), Harold Perrineau (Lost) and Lucy Griffiths (True Blood). The show’s pilot episode was written by David Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel), and directed by Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones).
