19. Constantine

Constantine1

Comic fans were not best pleased that Keanu Reeves’ John Constantine was neither blonde nor British, while the director (Francis Lawrence, then known only for helming music videos) didn’t exactly inspire an awful lot of confidence in those already worried. The movie would later prove to be actually rather good, and this poster arguably went some way in helping those sceptical fans to give this movie at least a chance. Surrounded by darkness – a fitting metaphor perhaps – Constantine is silhouetted here against a smoky background; an appropriate choice considering the fact that so much of this adaptation revolves around the fact that his cigarette addiction has led to him dying of lung cancer. It will be interesting to see if the planned TV series will be able to come up with an image quite as effective as this one.
