The teaser trailer for Showtime’s new horror TV series, Penny Dreadful, arrived way back in December, but now the full length trailer has finally been unleashed and it is amazing!
Filled with sex, violence, full on horror, gore and some very very sinister goings on, Penny Dreadful looks stunning! The show is set to premiere on Showtime on Sunday, May 11th, at 10PM ET/PT.
Penny Dreadful stars Billie Piper (Doctor Who), British actor Harry Treadaway (Control; Cockneys vs Zombies), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Eva Green (Dark Shadows), Josh Hartnett (30 Days of Night), Timothy Dalton, and Reeve Carney.
The first two episodes of Penny Dreadful will be directed by award-winning director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible, The Orphanage) and the series is being written by John Logan (Gladiator). Skyfall director Sam Mendes is producing.
Critically-acclaimed, award-winning Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible, The Orphanage) will helm the first two episodes in the eight episode series order of the upcoming SHOWTIME drama PENNY DREADFUL – created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar®nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Neal Street’s Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife). PENNY DREADFUL, a psychosexual horror series, features some of literature’s most iconic figures, and will begin production in London this fall.
In PENNY DREADFUL, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula – become embroiled in Victorian London. The series weaves together these classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation. This project marks Logan and Mendes’ second major collaboration, following Skyfall, their box office record-breaking James Bond film, which Mendes directed and Logan co-wrote; and their first ever collaboration for television. The project will be produced by Mendes’ production company Neal Street Productions.
Game of Thrones Season 4:
HBO have released a dramatic and revenge fuelled new trailer for Game of Thrones Season 4. You will find the spectacular trailer below which will give fans sleepless nights due to the excitement this trailer builds. I cannot wait, and this trailer has me begging for the series to return right this second!
It has felt like an age coming, but Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 6th, and season 4 promises to be pretty damn amazing. Fans will never be able to forget THAT wedding from season 3, so how this sort of TV brilliance can be topped remains to be seen.
However, the pieces of the puzzle are falling into place, and who knows, maybe, just maybe Daenerys Targaryen might reach her destination!
