Holy cow – now this looks like a movie! Yes, the extended redband teaser gubbins for Scott Stewart’s Legion has hit the interweb, and it rocks.
The story sees God sending a legion of avenging angels to Earth to bring about the Apocalypse – imagine him shaking a big celestial Etch-A-Sketch…
However, Archangel Michael (a non-ginger Paul Bettany rediscovering his Gangster No.1 intensity) has got something to say about it.
He plops to earth, hacks off his wings, and locates the not-quite born Second Coming, who is currently hanging-out in the womb of Mojave desert diner waitress Charlie (Adrianne Palicki).
At the diner, they hook up with Dennis Quaid and Tyrese (yeah, thanks for nothing) and get ready for things to get a bit Rio Bravo on their collective ass.
Let the terminally wet be warned – there’s some potty language and grue in there. Hey, like that’s a bad thing! Oh, and let’s pretend that D+CFilm’s not waaay behind everyone else with this news, eh?
Legion hits the UK on March 5 – more than a month after it screens in the States. Thought that sort of thing didn’t happen anymore. Sigh.
