An all-new tale of mystery and the occult will arrive in time for Halloween, with the October 9 release of Constantine: City of Demons, from Warner Bros. Animation, Blue Ribbon Content and DC Entertainment. The R-rated feature-length adventure based on the acclaimed animated series on CW Seed will be distirbuted by Warner Bros. Home Ent. on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack ($39.99 SRP), Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98) and Digital ($19.99 HD, $14.99 SD).
From executive producers David S. Gover and Greg Berlanti, the movie follows family man Chas Chandler (voiced by Damian O’Hare) and occult detective John Constantine (Matt Ryan) as they seek to cure Chas’ daughter Trish (Laura Bailey) of a supernatural coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels and brutal Aztec God Mictlantecuhtli (Rick Wasserman), they just might have a chance at outsmarting the demon Beroul (Jim Meskimen) to save Trish’s soul. In a world of shadows and dark magic, not everything is what it seems, and there’s always a price to pay. The path to redemption is never easy, and if Constantine is to succeed, he must navigate through the dark urban underbelly of Los Angeles, outwit the most cunning spawns of hell, and come face to face with arch-nemesis Nergal (Robin Atkin Downes) – all while battling his own inner demons!
The voice cast also features Emily O’Brien as Rene Chanlder, Kevin Michael Richardson as Mahonin, and Rachel Kimsey as Angela. Doug Murphy (Scooby-Doo and the Gourmet Ghost) directs from a scrip by J.M. DeMatteis (Batman: Bad Blood). Art direction is by Phil Bourassa (Young Justice). Butch Lukic (Justice League Action, Batman Unlimited) is producer. Sam Register and Sarah Schnechter are also exec producers.
Constantine: City of Demons is rated R for bloody violence/gore, disturbing images, and some sexual content.
