Newest Trailer For Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night
Comic book adaptations tend to make a lot of money, so, as a result, they are typically willing to put a few more dollars into the making of each one. The first Spider-Man movie was given a $140 million budget because it's a known character and was almost guaranteed to make its money back. Dylan Dog, on the other hand, doesn't really have that reach and it looks like that may have affected the bottom line.
Apple has premiered the newest trailer for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, based on the Italian comic book series by Tiziano Sclavi. In the film Brandon Routh, formally known as Superman, plays the titular character, a detective who specializes in cases involving the paranormal - be it zombies, werewolves, vampires or demons. When a client hires him after the death of her father, he must discover who - or what - is responsible.

While I will admit that I liked some of the quips, as intimated before, this movie seems to be suffering from a budget problem, namely the fact that the effects look like they've been taken out of a 1998 episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer (or the 1992 movie for that matter). Outside of that, I still maintain that it's unfair that Brandon Routh's career didn't take off after Superman Returns, as the guy obviously has some talent. Perhaps if the movie plays up it's camp factor it will manage, but I'm not sure I see that happening.
