New NSFW Trailer for Amazon’s ‘The Boys’ Looks Like a Bloody Good Time

Amazon has been stepping its game of late with some truly quality programming like their wickedly funny adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's Good Omens. This gives me relatively high hopes for their upcoming adaptation of Garth Ennis' The Boys, which seems to be doing a great job of capturing that title's anarchic spirit.

The series follows an elite team of super-powered individuals working for the CIA whose task it is to keep tabs on the current crop of celebrity superheroes. In Ennis' world, superheroes do much more publicity than crime-fighting, and are mostly viewed as a joke by "The Boys" as this task force is known. The series comes to us from executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who did a bang-up job with Preacher on AMC, leading me to hope they'll do the same here.

The Boys main cast consists of Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), The Frenchman (Tomer Kapon), The Female (Karen Fukuhara), and Mother's Milk (Laz Alonzo), with Butcher recruiting "Wee" Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), following a bloody run-in the latter had with a super.  This trailer's got some pretty imaginative stuff happening in it, so hopefully that stuff all makes its way into the show proper.

The Boys debuts on Amazon Prime July 26.
