NBC has released the first trailer and clip for its upcoming adaptation of DC's Hellblazer comic book, Constantine. Go ahead, take a look. They're definitely embracing the comic book roots and not trying to "ground" it, in a visual sense.
Looks like they're going big with this one, which also means it'll be on the chopping block immediately if the ratings aren't good- because a show like this is too expensive without the right numbers supporting it.
And here's the first clip from the show:
I've got to say, this has "bomb" written all over it for me. But I guess we'll see. And hopefully Lucy Griffiths can get a better grip on her American accent soon, cause between the trailer and the clip? Yikes.
