From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series Trailer

Looks cheesy

From Dusk Til Dawn, the film, has become a cult favorite. Can the premise survive a weekly series? Well that is what Robert Rodriguez intends to find out with his TV adaptation of the film. From Dusk Til Dawn, shortly to make its debut on Rodriguez's El Rey cable network.

Yes, that was Don Johnson as Sheriff Earl McGraw, previously played by Michael Parks. The Gecko Brothers here are played Zane Holtz and D. J. Cotrona. Jesse Garcia plays a new role: that of Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez. Robert Patrick is now in the Harvey Keitel role of preacher Jack Fuller, with Madison Davenport and Brandon Soo Hoo as his kids. And Eiza Gonzalez takes over from Salma Hayek (and Ara Celi) as the awe-inspiring Santanico Pandemonium. The make-up effects are being overseen by The Walking Dead‘s Greg Nicotero.

I need to see a little more. This trailer almost looks fan made. 

From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series arrives on El Rey on March 11.

 I think I'm pretty much vampired out.  And that trailer did nothing to change that.

I can't see this being picked up for a second season. Movie were okay but most of it was the actors. This could be really bad.

 The "El Ray" network?  Does anyone have this?  I've never heard of it.

CaptAmerica04 1/13/2014 10:06:42 AM

Yeah.  No.  Really no.  I mean, how does this even fit into the continuity of the first movie (let alone the half-ass sequels).  I... no.  Just no.

 I don't like to be negative, but aside from how awful the trailer looks, this is a silly idea to begin with.
From Dusk till Dawn had an intentionally threadbare story to begin with. It was a gleefully bloody throwback to the old Mondo Movies (let's make everyone think they're watching a crime movie then... WALLOP!!! VAMPIRES!!!) and worked beautifully... for what it was!
How do you turn such a warped "one-joker" into tv series?
You don't.

LOL! It's true, this looks like a fan made trailer.

This is a dumb idea in the history of dumb ideas. So let me get this straight, they are making a TV series of the first movie?

I don't know, like you said Mellodoux, the first movie was like a throwback. Let's not forget having Fred Williamson and Tom Savini in there as well,  an hommage to horror and blaxploitation of the 70s.

Was DJ Catrona Flint in GiJoe?

This looks like a waste of time and resources that could be diverted to actually good shows and media. A steaming pile of crap that I will not even waste the bandwidth to download. EPIC FAIL.

So Rodriguez is starting the El Rey Network with this?

Looking forward to :

Spy Kids the TV Series

Desparado Rides Again: The TV Series

Planet Terror the TV Series

 Planet Terror the TV Series. Now that is a damned good idea.
