First footage from Brandon Routh's Dylan Dog film

The first ever footage from the Dylan Dog live action movie adaptation has finally hit our screens. And it's making some nasty jokes at the expense of the undead.

While the word is still out on the US premiere, Dylan Dog is already gearing up for the Italy release, and this is the first clip anyone has seen thus far!

What you're seeing is the renamed character Marcus, who is Rouths undead sidekick, played by Sam Huntington. Marcus is a zombie, and in Dylan Dog's world, zombies have their own line of flesh-selling stores so they can keep their own hides fresh. Based on the comic book, Dylan Dog — which will probably be renamed Dead of Night in the US — follows Routh as he navigates through a world of vampires, zombies and other supernatural creatures. He's also a whizzbang with the ladies.
