Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night Trailer: Brandon Routh Fights Zombies, Werewolves, Obscurity
His next project is the awkwardly titled Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night, based on a wildly popular Italian comic book. It's about an implacable paranormal investigator who knows about the secret supernatural underbelly of the world -- one filled with zombies, vampires, werewolves, etc. Here's the trailer -- it's worth a watch provided you can get past the awful voiceover:
God damn, that voiceover was bloody atrocious. That guy should be thrown through a window into a pit of stingrays.
That aside, it's got some (albeit slapsticky and goofy) potential. It's aided by the undead comic relief provided by fellow Superman Returns alum Sam Huntington (who I only just realized is the fucking Geico caveman. I don't know if I can ever forgive that), and some fairly decent effects (even if they look like they were loaned out from the first season of "Buffy" at times). I suppose I'm willing to give it a shot. It's directed by Kevin Munroe, who most recently directed 2007's surprisingly watchable TMNT, so I guess he gets a few points for that too.
Maybe I'm being too kind. Either way, I still think the title is kind of silly.
