The news of a From Dusk Till Dawn TV series was broken some time ago, and had fans mystified by what the show would contain. Well now we have a trailer which appears to let out a few details of what the story will entail throughout the short mini-series.
We already knew that the plot was going to follow the same story line as in the 1996 film – the Gekko brothers are on the run from the law and on their way to Mexico to meet their partner, they kidnap a family from a motel and then end up fighting off vampires in the Titty Twister bar until dawn. However from the trailer it appears that the creators are going to look more in-depth at the characters in the story, and also look at the back story of what happened to the Gecko brothers before they were on the lam.
I have read many opinions from fans about their thoughts on the show, some were for it, and some thought that it was just another way for Hollywood to make money. From the trailer the series does look like it may do the original film justice, however, when I watch it what is always going to be in the back of my mind is that; it was not written by Quentin Tarantino, it does not star Juliette Lewis, Harvey Keitel or Michael Parks and most importantly it does not star George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as the ruthless Gecko brothers. But the series has been directed by Robert Rodriguez who directed the film, so maybe I’m speaking too soon in saying that it will not live up to expectations.
