It's "Tine" As In Fine, Not "Tine" As In Been

Of the two DC related TV projects that will be coming to our screens next season, Constantine is the one I'm more looking forward to. Yes, it's on NBC, and yes, they've dropped it into the Friday night slot after Grimm (which, to be fair, is also Hannibal's timeshare). But I'm just so much more interested in seeing a fairer adaptation of the Constantine character than I am in Bat-Babies. Mostly, I'm looking for some redemption from the Keanu Reeves movie, which was a decent enough film in and of itself, but it wasn't Constantine.

This trailer looks pretty solid, though the ghost of the film haunts it to a distressing degree. In fact, it appears that a lot of the pilot draws inspiration from the film. Which is distressing, but not the end of the world. It's only a pilot after all. Plenty of time to work up to the Trenchcoat Brigade.

Hit the jump for an extended clip featuring John making a first impression on Lucy Griffiths, during which he mispronounces his own name.
