Check out the first full trailer for “Skyfall” boys John Logan and Sam Mendes’ new Showtime show “Penny Dreadful,” which looks like “The X-Files” set in Victoria-era London. With James Bond leading a small band of fighters against the evils that lurk in the alleyways and basements, natch. Somehow, an American gunfighter gets involved, which is probably a nod to the hopeful American audience. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how Eva Green is co-starring in this one. Isn’t she also in like 5 billion other movies this year?

Anyways. Take a look at the two-minute trailer for “Penny Dreadful” below, people who enjoy taking a look at two-minute trailers.
