Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.10.09] movie news video fantasy



The official Solomon Kane website has launched an action-packed new clip from Michael Bassett's yet-to-find-US-distro fantasy flick. As a major fan of dark fantasy, waiting for the film has been like some terrible prolonged torture. At this rate, I'll probably have a German DVD of the film before it's even picked up here. Whatever, it wouldn't be the first time.

Of course we've covered the film here tons. quietearth got a chance to see the film at Fantastic Fest, as did rochefort (review, review)

Besides this clip, a new poster has been released in France as the film is on the eve of some Parisian screenings.

Monsterous clip after the break (scroll through menu to select).

I've been following this site for some time, but this is my first comment. I really appreciate the enthusiasm the guys on this site show for genre films. I've also followed the Kane film for quite a while on various sites. It has been a long ride. I attended the "Solomon Kane" screening at FantasticFest in Austin. This is the best sword and sorcery film since the original Coan. Dark, serious and respectful of the genre. Beautifully shot with top notch production values and a great lead performance by James Purefoy. Why this film hasn't been picked up in the states is beyond mystery. With the right promotion, this film could be a huge hit. It's about time Robert E. Howard had a film worthy of him. I have my fingers crossed for a sequel that features one of his African adventures. That would be sweet.

It seems like a no-brainer that Lionsgate would pick it up and create some Robert E. Howard marketing synergy with the Conan reboot.
