Constantine: First Trailer - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies Monday, May 12, 2014

This Undead Monday, we take another look at one of the most anticipated TV premieres this fall (at least for fans of the wildly popular character created by Alan Moore) with the release of the first trailer of NBC's upcoming live-action adaptation of Hellblazer. 

Well, all I can say is this trailer had me at "bollocks". 

We have had our First Look at Constantine back in March courtesy of NBC releasing the first official image featuring an intriguing take on the popular character created by Alan Moore and arguably the poster child of DC Comics' dearly missed Vertigo imprint. While we were assured that this ain't no cheap American knock-off version in the 2005 Hollywood take portrayed by Keanu Reeves (with unfortunately the most thankless role in that year) and that this iteration of John Constantine is played by Welsh actor with blonde hair and the classic trenchcoat we known and loved, we still can't help but being skeptical over this project.

Until this trailer. Hit the jump to check out the awesome trailer that unfortunately reminded me how badly missed the Vertigo version of John Constantine is.

Here's the official synopsis of the series:

Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell... hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray - and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it's revealed that Liv's "second sight," an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences, is a threat to a mysterious new evil that's rising in the shadows. And now it's not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world - and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all.

From Executive Producer David S. Goyer ("Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight Rises") and director Neil Marshall ("Game of Thrones," "The Descent") comes a dark new thriller that proves fighting evil is a hell of a job.

With its pilot episode directed by Neil Marshall and written by David Goyer, Constantine is set to premiere this fall on Friday nights at 10pm.
