I’ve been extremely skeptical of Kevin Munroe’s Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, his live-action adaptation of the popular Italian comic starring Brandon Routh, Sam Huntington, Anita Briem, Taye Diggs, Kyle Russell Clements, Peter Stormare, and Kurt Angle.
I thought most of the art, stills and even the trailer looked 1990’s hammy – and not even in a good way – but I’ll roll over a bit after seeing the first official clip. Inside we posted a scene where Routh, as the title character, takes his zombie friend Marcus (played by Huntington) to a grocery store for some supplied. Here, Marcus begins to learn that he’s now one of the undead. It’s pretty amusing stuff.
In theaters April 29, Routh stars as “Dylan Dog, world famous private investigator specializing in affairs of the undead. His PI business card reads “No Pulse? No Problem.” Armed with an edgy wit and carrying an arsenal of silver and wood-tipped bullets, Dylan must track down a dangerous artifact before a war ensues between his werewolf, vampire and zombie clients living undercover in the monster infested backstreets of New Orleans.”
