WITCH HUNTER NIC or “NOT ALL SOULS CAN BE SAVED”

I was beginning to wonder what had happened to Season of the Witch starring Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman, a movie trailer had been released late last year and then nothing well it looks like we have some new developments for Peter Goddard and Dominic Sena’s belabored project. Apparently Relativity has taken over the distribution on the movie after Lionsgate seemed to just drop it, they have also come out with a new movie poster which seems to signal a marketing shift away from the more supernatural ONE SHEET, that Lionsgate was pursuing to one were Nick is now portrayed as an Aragorn-isc hero. We also have a new movie trailer which was just released giving a more balanced picture, less Witch more brothers in arms fighting the good fight. I enjoy movies by Nick Cage, most people seem to have a different opinion, the National Treasure franchise is his best Knowing was a really good movie, haven’t seen Kick-Ass or The Socerer’s Aprentice yet but I hear there is a sequel in the works, I think we can thank Chloë Moretz for that.

I personally like the first trailer better, there just isn’t enough movies were Witch’s get to kick ass, but she’s up against Nick and Hellboy, they better make a third movie, so I think her season is up. As you have probably guessed I will be seeing this one.

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

Featurette “The Creatures of SOLOMON KANE” goes behind the scenes

Vanquish Evil

Solomon Kane is a fictional character created by the pulp-era writer Robert E. Howard. A 16th century Puritan, Solomon Kane is a somber-looking man who wanders the world with no apparent goal other than to vanquish evil in all its forms. His adventures, published mostly in the pulp magazine Weird Tales, often take him from Europe to the jungles of Africa and back

The Creatures of

Howard described him as a somber and gloomy man of pale face and cold eyes, all of it shadowed by a slouch hat. He is dressed entirely in black and his weaponry consists of a rapier, a dagger, and a brace of flintlock pistols. During one of his latter adventures his friend N’Longa, an African shaman, gave him a juju staff that served as a protection against evil, but could easily be wielded as an effective weapon. It is revealed in another story, “The Footfalls Within,” that this is the mythical Staff of Solomon, a talisman older than the Earth and unimaginably powerful, much more so than even N’Longa knew. In the same adventure with N’Longa, Kane is seen using a musket as well. Source: Wikipedia

Solomon Kane is directed by Michael J. Bassett The movie tells the origins of Solomon Kane and is hoped to be the first of a trilogy of movies and stars James Purefoy Here is one  review of the movie

SOLOMON KANE was really not what I expected. It’s far, far better than I could have hoped. As it stands, its pretty unique in the sword and sorcery movies simply because it has proper drama, great performances and some nasty intense action along with all the traditional sword fights, magical monsters and running, jumping and chasing [more]
