Constantine hates to put on airs in the latest trailer for NBC's upcoming adaptation of DC Comics' Hellblazer. Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine, an Exorcist and master of the dark arts who receives a dire warning that something bad is on the way. He must save his friend's daughter before an ancient evil rises, while demons and shadows begin to crawl out of the woodwork. Something is coming that we've never seen before, and only one man can send it back to Hell! Look around, see the world for what it really is: Coming Fridays this fall.
In Constantine, based on the comic book series Hellblazer, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell... hell. 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.
