From executive producers David S. Gover and Greg Berlanti, The Hellblazer is back in an all-new twisted tale of mystery, intrigue and the occult with Constantine: City of Demons, a full-length, R-rated feature film based on the acclaimed DC animated series from CW Seed. And now, a new trailer heralding the arrival of the movie on Blu-ray is here to stir your soul. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Blue Ribbon Content and DC Entertainment, the action-packed movie will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment starting October 9th on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and Digital.
Matt Ryan, who set the standard for the role of Constantine on the NBC live-action television series, returns to the famed trench coat in animated form – after reprising the role in both live-action (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow) series and an animated film (Justice League Dark). The cast surrounding Ryan includes Damian O’Hare as Chas Chandler, Laura Bailey as Trish & Asa The Healer, Emily O’Brien as Rene Chandler, Kevin Michael Richardson as Mahonin, Jim Meskimen as Beroul, Robin Atkin Downes as Nergal, Rachel Kimsey as Angela, and Rick Wasserman as Mictlantecuhtli.
Fair warning kiddos and parents: Constantine: City of Demons is rated R for bloody violence/gore, disturbing images, and some sexual content.

And here’s your official synopsis:
A decade after a tragic mistake, family man Chas and occult detective John Constantine set out to cure Chas’s daughter Trish from a mysterious supernatural coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels, and brutal Aztec God Mictlantecuhtli, the pair just might have a chance at outsmarting the demon Beroul to save Trish’s soul. In a world of shadows and dark magic, not everything is what it seems, and there’s always a price to pay. The path to redemption is never easy, and if Constantine is to succeed, he must navigate through the dark urban underbelly of Los Angeles, outwit the most cunning spawns of hell, and come face to face with arch-nemesis Nergal – all while battling his own inner demons!
