Check out a bloody, twisted, and sexy trailer for Showtime's Penny Dreadful!

02.14.2014

Now, this is a surprise!

I really didn't expect much from Showtime's Penny Dreadful series, but then again I didn't know much about it either. However, after seeing this new trailer for the series, I may need to call my cable company and get Showtime again, 'cause this is looking pretty damn badass. Starring Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, and Timothy Dalton, the series is basically THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN redux, with famous literary characters battling evil, albeit with the help of creator/writer John Logan (GLADIATOR, THE LAST SAMURAI) and executive producer Sam Mendes (SKYFALL). The trailer looks amazing, with some really great visuals that paint a portrait of a dark, twisted, bloody, and sexy show with some genuine scares.

Take a look:

Here's the show synopsis:

Some of literature's most famously terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula. become embroiled in Victorian London.

This looks really great and the cast is dead on. Eva Green has made a career of playing these types of mysterious, strong women, Timothy Dalton is just plain awesome, and Josh Hartnett...where the hell has he been? Welcome back, Josh. Other castmembers include Rory Kinnear, Helen McCrory, and Billie Piper. Pleasantly surprised with this. That last shot may cause nightmares, too.

Penny Dreadful premieres on Sunday, May 11th at 10PM ET/PT.

Showtime has really stepped it up over the last few years, I'd put them head to head with HBO for best shows on premium cable, shit even Starz and Cinemax have can't miss shows nowadays! We're definitely lucky to be around for these gems!

Looks good.

Hopefully they fix some of those shoddy makeup effects & obvious seams. I hate it when practical effects takes a "fix it digitally in post" attitude. Do it right in the first place.

that's exactly what you're seeing. its heart breaking. its not uncommon for seems to not blend as anticipated sometimes, and that's where post and practical work can work well together. it boggles the mind that they would release that image without addressing such an apparent flaw.
