That moment some of you hardcore comic book fans have been waiting for is here. No, we don't have the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 or a new teaser for Wonder Woman. Instead, we have something drastically different. And if you're into violence, gore and wack-a-doo portrayals of Police Officers pushed to the edge, Officer Downe is the movie for you.
Officer Downe is a comic-to-film adaptation that is definitely off the hinges. The following footage is definitely not for the squimish. It is chock full of very violent behavior. There are super weird villains that will, perhaps, be hard for your mom to wrap her head around. And there are some very big guns. This ain't no Marvel movie, we assure you of that!
Officer Downe looks like one hell of a time, and could be a cult classic in the making. It is based on the 2010 graphic novel of the same name. Chris Burnham and Joe Casey are responsible for this work of dark fiction. Here's the official synopsis.
"Officer Down takes you into a hyper-real Los Angeles for the story of a savage LA policeman who is repeatedly resurrected and returned to active duty via dark science technology. When a rookie officer named Gable is recruited as back up, he discovers there's much more to the titular super-cop than a mindless law enforcement drone warring against a twisted rouges gallery of over-the-top super-villains."
Perhaps stranger than the movie itself is the revelation of exactly who is behind the camera. Officer Downe was directed by none other than Slipknot's own M. Shawn Crahan. The movie stars Kim Coates, Alison Lohman, Tyler Ross, Lauren Luna Velez, Meadow Williams, and Sam Witwer. The movie is set to hit VOD on November 18 from Magnolia's Magnet Releasing. If you can't wait that long, then take a look at the trailer courtesy of Magnet Releasing. We also have new images and the poster.
