SUPERHERO HYPE! sneek peak...

Spoilers Ho!

The movie has been in the works for many years, and diehard fans of the series-of which I am definitely one-might have been skeptical about a dark-haired "yank" taking the place of Moore's blonde Brit from the comics. Since that American actor is Keanu Reeves, the most obvious reference point will obviously be "The Matrix," but having seen this footage, fans might be pleasantly surprised at how much of the flavor and tone of the comic books has been retained. Most of this can be attributed to Lawrence, and Constantine is his first feature film after directing commercials and many music videos for the likes of Aerosmith, Justin, Britney and others.

Probably the best thing about the footage is that we see Keanu Reeves playing Constantine a lot looser than he did Neo in "The Matrix" movies. The cynical humor of the characters suits him better than one might expect, and he doesn't seem to be taking himself quite as seriously.

One of the last scenes has Constantine standing in front of a group of people in a room. He uses his cigarette to set off a sprinkler, apparently filled with holy water, and as they're exposed as demons, they attack him in a scene that could have been taken directly from Blade, with Keanu blasting them apart with a crucifix shaped gun.

 

I'm sorry, but this sounds really bad.

lets hope this is right, and he does actually brush off the woodpecker for Constantine ;)

The shotgun bit is awful, but the holy water sprinkler thing is perfectly fine.

 

Other than John setting off the sprinkler system with his cigarette, this sounds like a bad video game.
