"Solomon Kane" Makes The Cut - September 28, 2012

Sneak Peek director Michael J. Bassett's 2009 action adventure "Solomon Kane", based on the character by "Conan" author Robert E. Howard, finally opening for a limited North American theatrical release September 28, 2012.

Cast includes James Purefoy, Max von Sydow, Mackenzie Crook and Philip Winchester :

"...'Captain Solomon Kane' is a 16th Century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents.

"As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane’s men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil’s own 'Reaper' — dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.

"His newfound spirituality, however, is quickly put to the ultimate test when he begins his journey across an England ravaged by diabolical human 'Raiders' controlled by a terrifying, masked 'Overlord'. After Kane fails to thwart the brutal slaughter of the 'Crowthorns', a Puritan family that has befriended him, he vows to find and free their enslaved daughter 'Meredith' — even if it means jeopardizing his own soul by re-embracing his skills for a higher cause. His determined search eventually brings him face to face with his family’s own deadly secrets as he attempts to save Meredith and all of England from the forces of evil..."
