Constantine: The Complete Series Arrives on October 4th

Darkness is rising, demons are everywhere … and one man stands between humanity and its worst nightmares: John Constantine. Warner Archive Collection (WAC) and DC Entertainment bring the live-action television series, Constantine: The Complete Series, to Blu-ray™ and DVD on October 4, 2016 via WBshop.com, Amazon and popular online retailers. Based on the wildly popular DC character, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan) is armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and a wickedly naughty wit. He fights the good fight – or at least he did. With his soul already damned to Hell, he’s decided to abandon his campaign against evil … until a series of events thrusts him back into the fray, and he’ll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. With the balance of good and evil on the line, Constantine will use his skills to travel the country, find the supernatural terrors that threaten our world and send them back to where they belong. After that, who knows ... maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.

constantine-blu-rayMatt Ryan (The Halcyon, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) stars as Constantine, a role he has since reprised for Arrow and as the voice of the animated character in the upcoming Justice League Dark.

“Actors don’t generally like to revisit their own filmed performances, but I really enjoyed watching the episodes myself because Constantine is such a bold, outright character – both to play and to watch,” says Ryan. “He’s this brilliant ball of wise-cracking, chain-smoking street magic – and it’s so much fun exploring his fascinating, dark world of torment and mystery. I’m happy the fans will now have the opportunity to experience the series on Blu-ray, plus all the bonus features.”

The cast features Angélica Celaya (Dallas) as Zed, Charles Halford (True Detective, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Chas and Harold Perrineau (Lost, Blade: The Series) as Manny.  Guest appearances include Jeremy Davies (Justified), Lucy Griffiths (True Blood, Preacher), David A. Gregory (One Life To Live), Michael James Shaw (Roots, Limitless), Claire van der Boom (Game of Silence, Hawaii Five-0), Skyler Day (Parenthood), Mark Margolis (Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Oz), Charles Parnell (The Last Ship), Michael McGrady (Ray Donovan, Southland), Joelle Carter (Justified) and Max Charles (The Strain, The Neighbors).

Writer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). “Constantine” is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based on the wildly popular comic book character from DC.

SDCC 2016: Shout! Factory Adapts Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues Into Weird Motion Comic Animation Thing

Having watched every Marvel one of these that Shout!Factory did... I will tell you right now that they're all terrible and just a motion comic that you have no control over. That and it's Dynamite so nothing suggests that this is going to be any better, but hey if you like that trailer then you'll be pleased to know that the "animation" will continue to move and look like that and the voice acting will be just as terrible. I wonder how many more announcements Dynamite has? I think this is going to drain their year for sure. From Dynamite:

Dynamite Entertainment and Red Sonja, LLC, are proud to announce that leading multi-platform entertainment company Shout! Factory has adapted the critically acclaimed Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues storyline written by Gail Simone (Batgirl, Secret Six) and illustrated by Walter Geovani (Vampirella, Witchblade) into a full-length animated feature. Measuring 72 minutes in length and featuring voice acting (including the talented Misty Lee of Ultimate Spider-Man), sound effects, and music, the Red Sonja film transforms the seminal, epic comic book series' artwork into a thrilling experience of motion and sound. The film is available in Blu-Ray and DVD formats on August 2, 2016.

In the Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues film, the crimson-tressed heroine intends to pay back a blood debt owed to the one man who has gained her respect... even if it means leading a doomed army to their certain deaths! Who is Dark Annisia, and how has this fearsome warrior accomplished what neither god nor demon has been able to do: force Sonja to her knees in surrender? An epic tale of blood, lust, and vengeance, Queen of Plagues takes the She-Devil with a Sword from the depths of her own grave to the heights of battlefield glory.

RSSimoneVol1CovWriter Gail Simone says, "Red Sonja's my favorite character, and seeing my words and the dazzling art of Walter Geovani brought to life has been absolutely thrilling. It's just a big, fun, sexy, sweaty epic with the best sword and sorcery character of all time!"

"We were fortunate to work with Gail and Walter as they had an incredible run on Sonja that had incredible critical acclaim," says Nick Barrucci, Publisher and CEO of Dynamite. "That we could work with them to create this movie to reach a larger fan base is incredibly rewarding."

"Queen of Plagues is one of the best books we have ever put out," says Luke Lieberman, President of Red Sonja, LLC. "It is new canon. Gail and Walter did an amazing job, and Shout! Factory brought the pages to life!"

Shannon Kingston, voice actress on the film, says, "This was up there as one of my favorite acting roles! Getting to bring the words of the great Gail Simone to life was an honor and so much fun. Her writing is so relatable, and funny when it's called for! I'm hoping to do the next two books!"

Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, is a fictional character, based on a high-fantasy swords-and-sorcery heroine created by author Robert E. Howard and adapted to comics by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith in Conan the Barbarian #23 (1973). Her immense popularity led to solo appearances in Marvel Feature (1975) and a self-titled series in 1977. Red Sonja has become the archetypical female warrior of fantasy literature: fierce, capable, and stunningly beautiful. Since 2005, the character has had many successful ongoing series, miniseries, one-shot comics, and crossover appearances through publisher Dynamite Entertainment. The popularity of the character has led to a 1985 live-action feature film (starring Brigitte Nielsen) and appearances on merchandise including statues, busts, barware, t-shirts, and an upcoming video game.
