Last Updated on July 30, 2021

For those who still mourn the loss of The CW's live-action series CONSTANTINE starring Matt Ryan, and feel as if the actor's inclusion on LEGENDS OF TOMORROW simply isn't enough, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Blue Ribbon Content, and DC Entertainment have just released the details of CONSTANTINE: CITY OF DEMONS, an R-rated animated film starring the studio's charismatic mischief maker, John Constantine.

Executive produced by David S. Goyer and Greg Berlanti, The Hellblazer is back in an all-new full-length feature that promises to share a terrifying tale of mystery, magic, and the occult with CONSTANTINE: CITY OF DEMONS. The upcoming animated film serves as an end-cap for the CW Seed series, which streamed on the service earlier this year, but left aspects of its storytelling unfinished.

Starting October 9th, the film will be unleashed on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-Ray Combo Pack, and Digital. The Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack will cost you $39.99, while the Blu-ray Combo Pack will set you back $24.99. Meanwhile, the Digital version of the film will run at $19.99 for HD, and $14.99 for a Standard version. The Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc featuring the film; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the Blu-ray and DVD. The Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Combo Pack include a digital version of the film. The movie is rated R for bloody violence/gore, disturbing images, and some sexual content. Ha cha cha!

Here's the official plot synopsis:

A decade after a tragic mistake, family man Chas and occult detective John Constantine set out to cure Chas’s daughter Trish from a mysterious supernatural coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels, and brutal Aztec God Mictlantecuhtli, the pair just might have a chance at outsmarting the demon Beroul to save Trish’s soul. In a world of shadows and dark magic, not everything is what it seems, and there’s always a price to pay. The path to redemption is never easy, and if Constantine is to succeed, he must navigate through the dark urban underbelly of Los Angeles, outwit the most cunning spawns of hell, and come face to face with arch-nemesis Nergal – all while battling his own inner demons!

CONSTANTINE: CITY OF DEMONS stars Matt Ryan as the voice of John Constantine, Damian O'Hare as Chas Chandler, Laura Baily as Asa the Healer, and Emily O'Brien as Renee Chandler, among others.

In addition to the feature-length animated film, the release of CONSTANTINE: CITY OF DEMONS will also come packed with the following Enhanced Content.
