Some time ago Jason shared with you all a 30 second trailer for Showtimes Penny Dreadful and we now have a much lengthier trailer which gives us a much deeper look at the show. Candidly at this point I am not really sure if it is for me. I love the idea that it features some of our favorite classic characters but the trailer is creepy for all the wrong reassons.
The new series from Oscar-nominee writer John Logan (“Sweeney Todd” and “Skyfall”) takes an interesting look at classic literary characters- Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Grey, Mina Harker, and more- by placing them all together in Victorian London. And we all know that whenever you place so many Victorina characters together, psychosexual terror is bound to take place.
The cable series will star Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear, and more. Juan Antonio Bayona, the director of “The Orphanage”, will direct the first two episodes of the eight-part series. Journey down below to check out the teaser.
