The new supernatural series, Penny Dreadful finally has a full trailer!

Created by John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) who will write and produce alongside Oscar winning director Sam Mendes (American beauty). The first few episodes of the planned 8 episode first season are to be directed by J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage).
Described as a frightening psychosexual thriller, the series will feature some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters such as Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light in which they have become embroiled in Victorian London.
The series stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down, Sin City), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights) and Eva Green (Casino Royale). Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Billie Piper (Doctor Who), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger) and Danny Sapani (The Bill).

Penny Dreadful will premiere on May 11th.
