“Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night” hits theaters next weekend, bringing Tiziano Sclavi’s celebrated Italian comic book series to life on the big screen. Just in case you can’t wait that long, here’s an early peek at the film courtesy of a new clip debuting exclusively here on MTV Splash Page:
Directed by Kevin Munroe (“TMNT”) and starring Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns”), Sam Huntington (“Being Human”), Taye Diggs (“Rent”), and Anita Briem (“Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D”), “Dead Of Night” follows the world’s only “private investigator of the undead” as he gets caught in a war between vampires, werewolves, zombies and other supernatural creatures.
Back in August 2009, Routh pulled the “Star Wars” card when asked to describe Dylan Dog to those who might not be familiar with the best-selling comic, which was recently re-published in the U.S. by Dark Horse Comics.
“That’s what’s cool about Dylan Dog, he’s kind of like Han Solo,” Routh said of Dylan Dog. “He just has his swagger and his charisma and his dour attitude sometimes that gets him through the day.”
“Dylan Dog”: Dead Of Night” hits theaters April 29. You can check out a few new images from the film below:
