Amazon lancia una nuova serie splatter sui supereroi Collateral 4

Amazon is now becoming a giant also as a streaming platform for TV series, movies, and documentaries and it has just launched the trailer for the next series The Boys, produced by Seth Rogen and his crime partner Evan Goldberg.

Based on Garth Ennis’ best-selling comics – designed by Darick Robertson and published in the U.S. since mid-2006 – it tells of CIA agent Billy Butcher, played by Karl Urban, on his way to recruit a team of vengeful characters known as “The Boys” who will have to fight a gang of corrupt and abusive superheroes, called “The Seven”. Together, they are a group of CIA agents who, in a world populated by superheroes, are tasked with keeping these improved individuals in line. Among the protagonists, we find Chace Crawford the former Nathaniel “Nate” Fitzwilliam Archibald who the little girls loved so much.

The trailer starts by showing Billy recruiting a series of members, along with short excerpts of superheroes who kill innocent people and abuse their powers. A Flash-like sprinter runs through a girl and “explodes” her. Then the “The Boys” are introduced, a group composed of Butcher, Frenchie, Mother’s Milk and Female, the most violent group that kills by sticking its fingers in the eyes of enemies. There follows a series of scenes with a high number of brutal clashes between “The Boys” and “The Seven”.

For those who love this kind of series and special effects, The Boys will be available on Amazon Prime Video for subscribers from July 26.
