Warner Bros. has released an official descrpiton for the Constantine movie, which opens on Feb. 18.

Here's how the studio describes the film:

"John Constantine has been to hell and back.

Born with a gift he didn't want, the ability to clearly recognize the half-breed angels and demons that walk the earth in human skin, Constantine (Keanu Reeves) was driven to take his own life to escape the tormenting clarity of his vision. But he failed. Resuscitated against his will, he found himself cast back into the land of the living. Now, marked as an attempted suicide with a temporary lease on life, he patrols the earthly border between heaven and hell, hoping in vain to earn his way to salvation by sending the devil's foot soldiers back to the depths.

But Constantine is no saint. Disillusioned by the world around him and at odds with the one beyond, hešs a hard-drinking, hard-living bitter hero who scorns the very idea of heroism. Constantine will fight to save your soul but he doesn't want your admiration or your thanks -- and certainly not your sympathy.

All he wants is a reprieve.

When a desperate but skeptical police detective (Rachel Weisz as Angela Dodson) enlists his help in solving the mysterious death of her beloved twin sister (also played by Weisz), their investigation takes them through the world of demons and angels that exists just beneath the landscape of contemporary Los Angeles. Caught in a catastrophic series of otherworldly events, the two become inextricably involved and seek to find their own peace at whatever cost.

Spider-Man Complete Set on CDROM


Ant creator Mario Gully told The Continuum that he is moving the character to Image Comics, with a new Ant series launching in September.

"I always loved Image Comics -- always," Gully told The Continuum during FX 2005 in Orlando, Fla., on Friday night. "From 1992, I was always a fan."

Gully, who was once of the stars of a talent search by Todd McFarlane, eventually came to Image through his relationship with publisher Erik Larsen, and agreed to move the character last fall.

Asked about his approach to the new Ant series, Gully said, "Hanna's grown up. She's Ant and she's a hero. I've tried the fantasy style, but now I want to do a super-hero book in the old, traditional way."

Ant will firmly be in Image's super-hero universe. Savage Dragon guest-stars in the second issue, featuring Arachnid as the villain, and Spawn appears in the third issue.

"I don't think Todd has loaned out Spawn in several years, so it's a big deal," Gully said. "It was my idea to use Spawn and Eric helped make it happen."

Gully said Larsen has taken him under his wing, and the new Ant series will be a step up in quality of art. "He's hard, he's tough, but he's helping me improve," Gully said of Larsen. "He's made me a better artist."
