In Penny Dreadful, some of literature's most famously terrifying characters -- including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light -- have become embroiled in Victorian London. The series stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Eva Green (Casino Royale) Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights and License to Kill), Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl) and Danny Sapani (The Bill). The series is a frightening psychosexual thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street. Of the eight episodes, the first two will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage and the acclaimed film, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated performance.

Penny Dreadful premieres May 11th on Showtime.

This is one beautiful cast.

Can't wait for this show, everything about it has gotten me excited.
InfiniteMonkey - 3/31/2014, 9:38 AM
Eva Greene and Billy Piper are just mad sexy!

Captain America is just days away.
I can feel that gangbuster movie coming in like a tonne of bricks!

America is so bloody late! Miss living in London.

It doesn't matter what I do or don't want to watch, any objections I may have are immediately ignored and/or trampled on the second my girlfriend sets her mind on something.
cipher - 3/31/2014, 9:42 AM
Don't you say it, dammit..

Don't you call me whipped. I'm NOT "whipped". Just.. well, passive. If I say it enough, I'll believe it.
cipher - 3/31/2014, 9:44 AM
Hahahahaha, I know!! They don't even really WATCH the bloody thing, yet I'm not allowed to say shit about shit.

It's f*cked.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/31/2014, 9:49 AM
Eva Green can get it every damn day and each and very way!!!
Kyos - 3/31/2014, 9:51 AM
Yup, I am totally going to watch this. :)
RorMachine - 3/31/2014, 9:53 AM
What exactly makes any of you think this show will be crap? Is it the excellent cast? The writers? Sam Mendes producing? That fact that it's a Showtime series and they're always top notch? Or is it that the trailer was really cool, sexy and creepy?
DrunkenNukem - 3/31/2014, 9:53 AM
This show looks promising...i will watch this show..

i thought Josh Harnett was in exile
TopCat89 - 3/31/2014, 9:54 AM
Nice to see Josh Hartnett again...dropped off the map for a bit...good actor!
thewonderer - 3/31/2014, 9:56 AM
The fact that some of you cite that you have girlfriends legitimately scares the living hell out of me.
InfiniteMonkey - 3/31/2014, 9:56 AM
There ya go mate, its a Showtime series.

Ain't got that. Going to find a way to download.

Eva Greene haunts my dreams in pure nakedness.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/31/2014, 9:58 AM
Please let there be a nude scene of Eva Green. She's breathtaking with clothes on...imagine them off
InfiniteMonkey - 3/31/2014, 10:00 AM
Shit.
Girlfriend just saw me comment about Eva Greene being naked in my dreams.

Just gave me that look then left. F*ck.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/31/2014, 10:06 AM
Billie piper gonna be at DC Awesome Con in DC next month. Can't wait to see her
symbiotics - 3/31/2014, 10:09 AM
@ComicsBornAndBred we don'need to imagine anymore, just watch Dreamers or the last 300 ;)
cipher - 3/31/2014, 10:15 AM
wonderer, it's clear you think you're better than everybody here, but the fact that you think I give two shits what you think legitimately amuses me.
Havensent - 3/31/2014, 10:34 AM
I think this show is gonna be great. Great cast of actors and it looks creepy as hell from the promos.

Btw, add me in on the Eva Green love fest. Ever since seeing her sex scene in 300: Rise of an Empire she's been on my mind. She can be extremely sexy when she wants and she's a great actress to boot.
Space - 3/31/2014, 10:56 AM
I don't have Showtime...
nowtheresaBATman - 3/31/2014, 10:58 AM
@Haven
Just jumping on the Eva Green sexy wagon now??

Watched Casino Royale again this morning...she might not be nude in that but I still think its her sexiest role yet.

Que up The Dreamers if you want to quench the thirst 300 left you with ;)

0megaDaGod - 3/31/2014, 11:23 AM
For some reason I havn't been paying attention to this at all

But the cast looks great
Bloodraven - 3/31/2014, 12:02 PM
@symbiotics She went full frontal in pretty much everything in pretty much everything except Casino Royale and Dark Shadows.
Mastyrwerk - 3/31/2014, 12:52 PM
So, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

That's the vibe I'm getting from this.
GURILLAPUD - 3/31/2014, 1:16 PM
Yeah, not excited. I'll pass on Eva Green, not sexy, not one bit.
Desrow - 3/31/2014, 1:18 PM
Josh Hartnett making a come back?? About damn time.
StarGateCommand - 3/31/2014, 1:35 PM
@InfiniteMonkey

Haha, America is late to its own show, Captain America The Winter Soldier.


Eva Green, what can I say?? That woman is the personification of allure and attraction. I would love to rock her world on a minute by minute basis.

And BTW, I will be watching this show. Psychosexual......
case - 3/31/2014, 7:25 PM
Yeah it seems to have the right pieces this show, but even with Eva it's not lightin my desire.





Totally true about the girlfriend yoss n cipher - mines pretty rad with shows, but put on a movie she wants to watch - she'll be asleep in 10 minutes, and I'm wondering why the hell they call em romcoms when there's the complete opposite of comedy involved. It's like the anti-comedy or something. Ugh...
