During last night's "Dexter" series finale, Showtime released the first trailer for their upcoming big-budget supernatural series "Penny Dreadful". Think a more horror and psychosexual spin on "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," the show comes from "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes and writer John Logan.

Filming doesn't actually begin for another two weeks so there's no actual series footage as such in the clip. Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway and Reeve Carney star with Juan Antonio Bayona ("The Orphanage") helming the first two episodes.
