The first trailer has arrived online for NBC's
TV series, starring Matt Ryan as the titular detective specialising in all things supernatural.
A master (or "petty dabbler", as he would have it) of the dark arts, Constantine was a skilled exorcist and opponent of escaped demons, but with his own soul now condemned to hell, he's not so fussed with fighting the good fight.
That is, however, until said demons begin to target the daughter of one of his oldest friends, a young woman whose own second sight is a major threat to supernatural evildoers everywhere.
Take a look at the new trailer, below...
Ryan seems to have got Constantine's gruff sense of humour down pat, while the demons seem far more menacing than the camp antagonists of the 2005 movie. All in all, it looks rather promising…
With Neil Marshall having directed the pilot, and David S. Goyer on executive producer duties,
co-stars Lucy Griffiths and Harold Perrineau, and will premiere on NBC later this year, with a UK air date to be confirmed.
