THQ and SCi Entertainment Group
Sign Exclusive Agreement for U.S. Publishing of ‘Constantine’

Video Game Based on Upcoming Film
From Warner Bros. Pictures

CALABASAS HILLS, Calif., Dec 20,
2004: THQ and SCi Entertainment Group have signed an exclusive agreement naming
THQ the North American publisher for the "Constantine" video game, licensed by
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics, and based on the Warner
Bros. Pictures film. The game is scheduled to be released for the PlayStation® 2
computer entertainment system and Xbox® video game system from Microsoft in
February 2005 in conjunction with the film’s release.

Based on the DC Comics/Vertigo "Hellblazer"
graphic novels, the supernatural thriller "Constantine" tells the story of John
Constantine (Keanu Reeves), a man who has literally been to hell and back. When
he teams up with skeptical policewoman Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) to solve the
mysterious suicide of her twin sister, 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.

The video game will closely follow
the script of the movie, allowing gamers to play as John Constantine in
third-person mode. The story will move between the planes of Earth and "Hell
L.A." introducing terrifying enemies from the movie as well as new enemies
created for the game. Players will encounter an arsenal of horrific artifacts
including The Crucifier, the Holy Shotgun, and the Shroud of Moses.
