Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.24.17] Netherlands thriller western



Late last year it was announced that writer/director Martin Koolhoven's western Brimstone had been picked up for North American release by Momentum pictures who were planning a release in March 2017.


We're big fans of untraditional westerns and Koolhoven's English language debut certainly seemed to fit the bill; a thriller starring Dakota Fanning as Liz, a mute midwife whose life is devastated when a new preacher (Guy Pearce) takes the pulpit in their small town.



The clips we had originally seen suggested a great, western thriller with gothic elements and the first trailer builds further on that, suggesting this is a genre-bender: a gritty tale of survival, a religious thriller and a western to boot.

Along with Fanning and Pearce, the movie also stars "Game of Thrones" stars Kit Harington and Carice van Houten.

Brimstone opens in select theaters and will be available on VOD on March 10.
