New Solomon Kane Featurette

Solomon Kane will debut tonight as part of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness series, and to help prime audiences for what they’re gonna see, a new promotional featurette has just popped up online.

Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist), Pete Postlethwaite (The Omen remake), Rachel Hurd-Wood (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer), and Alice Krige (Silent Hill) all star in the strange tale of a 16th Century Puritan tormented by his past evils.

Synopsis
The first part in a trilogy series, Solomon Kane is an epic adventure adapted from the classic pulp stories by Robert E. Howard, creator of “Conan the Barbarian.” Solomon Kane (James Purefoy) is a 16th Century soldier who learns that his brutal and cruel actions have damned him. Determined to redeem himself, Kane swears to live a life of peace and goodness but is forced to fight once more when a dark power threatens the land.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Robert E. Howard will be rolling over in his grave over this film, which looks like it’s using the name only. The story line doesn’t follow any of the Kane stories and his background being a bad boy goes against his upbringing as a puritan background. Weird. There is a whole series of tales of Solomon Kane, and they’re great swashbuckling adventures. Then they (studio or whoever wrote this) go and write something all together different, I don’t get it. I don’t think the lead is a very good choice to play Solomon, he’s too modern and pretty looking. I don’t mean to be a grump but I love the Solomon Kane stories and this appears to be some over the top Van Helsing type weirdness.
