Last week I presented you a cool poster for SEASON OF THE WITCH, and now you can view the breathtaking and spectacular trailer for this action packed epic.
In the film, Nicolas Cage stars as a 14th century Crusader who returns with his comrade (Ron Perlman) to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence. A priest, a grieving knight, an itinerant swindler and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight join the mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl.
When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardizes the knight’s pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force. The film is out next January.
You can also check out the spooky poster and trailer for the new religious thriller THE RITE which comes out next January and stars Anthony Hopkins.
The film will follow skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue), who reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While in Rome, he meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who introduces him to the darker side of his faith. This supernatural thriller will uncover the devil’s reach to even one of the holiest places on Earth.The film also has other amazing mature actors in its cast: Ciarán Hinds, Rutger Hauer, Franco Nero ... The tag line of the film says - you can only defeat it when you believe!
And a big congrats to our Michael Malone from MAY CONTAIN NUTS who has just signed a publishing contract for his debut crime novel "Blood Tears"!!!
Two great actors and two very intriguing movies.ReplyDelete
Thoughts in Progress
And Halloween's over. Or is this for next year?ReplyDelete
didn't know you liked Cage and Hopkins, Masy :) Glad you liked the films.
of course it's for next year, you know how HOLLYWOOD SPY deals only with super fresh news :)
I remember seeing the trailer for "Season of the Witch" almost a year ago and it then disappearing and now it's back again...ReplyDelete
Love watching Anthony Hopkins on screen, so the Rite is definately a movie on my 'to watch' list. Quite intrigued about Season of the With also, could be pretty good. Thanks for the news Dezmond you sex god of all movie news!ReplyDelete
it was probably some early teaser
SEASON OF THE WITCH really does seem intriguing, doesn't it? Glad you enjoyed the news, you HOLLYWOOD SPY's officially favourite top model ;)
glad you like it,Mary
A couple of great picks there, Dezmond. And I see Anthony Hopkins has his Hannibal Lector face on for the poster.ReplyDelete
and thanks for the mention!
the rite looks so SUPER scary!!! hopkins is excellent, but i don't think i'm brave enough for that one.ReplyDelete
season of the witch looks very, very good- although i think cage might ruin the movie...
don't forget us when you become a bestselling author ;)
ah, I understand your fears, sister, Cage might, and probably will, ruin the film.
Season of the witch trailer, wow! I must watch this movie!ReplyDelete
That is a spooky trailer . . .ReplyDelete
Congrats to Michael!
indeed you must
I reckon you mean the second one :)
Season looks cool but Rite looks too scary for me. I normally don't mind horror flicks but that subject matter just gives me the heebeegeebees.ReplyDelete
Don't be scared, Lyndylove, it's nothing that some good exorcism can't solve :)ReplyDelete
About damn time Season came out! It's been forever! The new poster reminds me of a blend of Fading of the Cries and Day Watch.ReplyDelete
The Rite looks pretty cool though. Anything with Anthony Hopkins is awesome in my books too (but I'm biased, he was born about 30 minutes from where I live :P)
ha ha, Christian talks to much!, but thank you, very proud to be anything official to the Hollywood Spy, let me know if you need me to model anything for you lol ;)ReplyDelete
ah, I totally forgot that Hopkins is from Wales as well :) Anybody else beside Zeta Jones, Tom Jones and Ioan Gruffudd?
don't blame it on our dear Christian, you know that a good spy always finds out everything :P
And you got my mind filled with all kinds of ideas with the end of your sentence :)
DEZMOND - Great! Intrigue! Freaky! Some strange and interesting stuff you've got going on today. LOL. =DReplyDelete
You are really well informed, Dezmond. Let us now wait for the films.ReplyDelete
I must say, while Season of the Witch does look like your cliched Fantasy film, it still does look really good. Might have to check it out.ReplyDelete
Congrats, Michael! Woot! Okay. Now to this post. Is it just me, or does anybody else find Nick Cage to look a bit Zoolander-esque?ReplyDelete
it was an intriguing day here at HOLLYWOOD SPY :)
thanks, Thomaz, say hello to everyone in Brazil :) and to Suzy
exactly my point, Bry
doesn't he always look a bit Zoolanderish? :)))
Anything w/ Anthony Hopkins in it is always worth watching. Marvelous actor.ReplyDelete
