TO STOP A DEVIL, YOU MUST SUMMON A BIGGER ONE

From executive producers David S. Gover and Greg Berlanti, The Hellblazer is back in a twisted tale of mystery, intrigue and the occult with Constantine: City of Demons, a full-length, R-rated feature film which was also presented as an acclaimed DC animated series on CW Seed from 2018-2019. The feature was produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Blue Ribbon Content and DC Entertainment, and distributed on home media by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment

A decade after a tragic mistake, family man Chas and occult detective John Constantine set out to cure Chas’s daughter Trish from a mysterious supernatural coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels, and brutal Aztec God Mictlantecuhtli, the pair just might have a chance at outsmarting the demon Beroul 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 – all while battling his own inner demons!

constantineTo note, this movie is a spin off of the Justice League Dark animated feature and takes place in that continuity. That means, basically, even though it wasn't released under that banner, Constantine: City of Movies takes place in DC Universe Movie continuity. Check out more details on the DC Animated Movie Universe here.

Constantine: City of Demons was produced in a dual format – a feature film originally but presented and released initially as an animated shorts series, the first five of which appeared on CW Seed and covered the first half of the movie. With a runtime of 90 minutes, the feature-length Constantine: City of Demons film has over an hour of never-before-seen content including the film's thrilling climax. Constantine: City of Demons was originally announced at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in 2017.

Doug Murphy (Scooby-Doo and the Gourmet Ghost) directs the film from a script by J.M. DeMatteis (Batman: Bad Blood). Art Direction is courtesy of Phil Bourassa (Young Justice). Butch Lukic (Justice League Action, Batman Unlimited) is the film’s producer. Sam Register and Sarah Schechter also serve as executive producers. The film is partially inspired by the classic John Constantine, Hellblazer: All His Engines graphic novel from DC Comics.

Matt Ryan, who set the standard for the role of Constantine on the 2014-2015 NBC live-action television series, dons the famed trenchcoat here again, alongside his notable reprisals of the role in both live-action (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow) series and in the Justice League Dark animated feature.

The cast surrounding Ryan includes Damian O’Hare (Hell on Wheels) as Chas Chandler, Laura Bailey (Critical Role) as Trish & Asa The Healer, Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless) as Rene Chandler, Kevin Michael Richardson (Family Guy) as Mahonin, Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation) as Beroul, Robin Atkin Downes (The Strain) as Nergal, Rachel Kimsey (Justice League Action) as Angela, and Rick Wasserman (Batman: The Killing Joke) as Mictlantecuhtli.

“Fans have responded to John Constantine with an unbridled thirst for his stories – first in the live-action series Constantine, and again with Justice League Dark. Constantine: City of Demons offers Warner Bros. Home Entertainment another opportunity to satisfy the fans’ desire for this character in a fascinating tale that provides even greater insight into his backstory and the situations that helped create his approach to the supernatural,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “We’re especially thrilled to be able to release this full-length feature film focused on fan-favorite Constantine and full of special extras.”

The first half of Constantine: City of Demons was released as five short episodes on the CW Seed website on March 24, 2018, after premiering the same day at WonderCon 2018. The feature-length version - the actual format of Constantine: City of Demons - was released on Blu-ray and digital on October 9, 2018. Constantine: City of Demons then made its broadcast debut on The CW on October 15, 2018 under the title Constantine: The Legend Continues and presented as the five short episodes created for CW Seed. After the first half was initially released as five separate episodes, Constantine: City of Demons was later re-edited and released as two episodes - "Part One" and "Part Two" - for CW Seed on January 17, 2019.
