As longtime fans of the 2005 film Constantine, we were a bubbling cauldron of mixed emotions when we heard that NBC wanted to do a small screen adaption. But after watching (multiple times) the initial trailer that NBC just released a few days ago, we’re stoked at the look of the show! Criminal Mind’s Matt Ryan looks fantastic in the role and it seems that they’re going to pull off the effects as well.
NBC will conjure up Constantine this fall.
Executive Producer: David S. Goyer
Directed By: Neil Marshall
Starring: Harold Perrineau, Matt Ryan, Lucy Griffiths, and Charles Halford
Synopsis: 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.
