First Trailer for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night

A. Quinton — Aug. 17th 2010

Edit: Apparently this trailer wasn’t supposed to get out. It’s been set to “private” by the YouTube user who posted it, the official-looking DylanDogFilms. There were a few other copies re-uploaded, but they’ve been removed via copyright claims. Hey DylanDogFilms, what the hell? I’m leaving this embedded video here just in case it ever becomes public again.

Fans of the original Italian comic book might have mixed feelings about some of the liberties taken with the characters and story, but I thoroughly enjoyed this trailer for the film adaptation of Dylan Dog. The first scene depicts a werewolf getting punched out with a silver knuckle-duster, and I’m okay with this, because the movie looks like a lot of goofy 80’s style monster fun (despite the tiresome “vampires taking over the world” trope). Also influencing me is the fact that Dylan is played by Brandon Routh, who I am currently unable to see as anyone other than Todd Ingram.

    Not completely uninteresting looking, but nothing much to do with Dylan Dog either, from what I can tell.

  • Ryan

    Looks pretty good actually. And I love Brandon Routh.

  • Viergacht

    Well, I’m a fan of the original, and I’m just going to pretend that by some bizarre coincidence it and this movie share the same title. Because it doesn’t look very faithful, but it looks like wonky good fun. Hey, he seems to be punching out Teen Wolf, how can you not like that?!

  • ArcLight

    Looks like fun.

  • KPat

    The video has been made private… any thoughts on how I could see it?

    I’ve never read Dylan Dog, but the movie has Superman and Jimmy Olsen together again. How can I say no to that? ;)
