Following this week’s poster reveal, ultraviolent supernatural cop actioner Officer Downe now has a trailer and it’s packing plenty of comic-book nuttiness.
Directed by Slipknot’s Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan, Officer Downe is adapted from the 2010 graphic novel of the same name by Chris Burnham and Joe Casey. It stars Sons of Anarchy’s Kim Coates as its badass titular cop, who cannot be stopped by anything as trivial as death. Appearing alongside Coates are Sam Witwer (The Mist), Lauren Luna Vélez (Dexter), Meadow Williams (Can’t Come Out to Play) and Tyler Ross (V/H/S 2).
Officer Downe takes you into a hyper-real Los Angeles for the story of a savage LA policeman who is repeatedly resurrected and returned to active duty via dark science technology. When a rookie officer named Gable is recruited as back up, he discovers there’s much more to the titular super-cop than a mindless law enforcement drone warring against a twisted rouges gallery of over-the-top super-villains.
Officer Downe will protect, serve and kick ass when the film hits VOD on November 18th through Magnolia’s Magnet Releasing.
