Season of the Witch Teases Us with a Trailer

No, we’re not talking about the bastard sequel of the Halloween franchise (sorry, no need to get that song stuck in your head) or even the little known George A. Romero flick of the same name. What we have here is the teaser trailer for a new Dominic Sena flick!

Season of the Witch stars Nicolas Cage, Nicolas Cage’s Hair, Ron Perlman, Stephen Campbell Moore, Claire Foy, Robbie Sheehan, and Stephen Graham.

Synopsis
In the supernatural thriller SEASON OF THE WITCH, 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 (Stephen Campbell Moore), a grieving knight (Ulrich Thomsen), an itinerant swindler (Stephen Graham), and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight (Robert Sheehan) join a 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.

Check out the teaser below courtesy of IGN, and look for the film in theatres on March 19, 2010.

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

    I think it looks f ing cool. Well, minus Nicholas Cage that is. Don’t know why I’m just not much of a a Cage fan anymore. Movie looks cool though.

    Well, well, well…

    Okay, that looks like its going to be the dumbest, most entertaining thing to come along in a good long while. Its sad that its coming out in March; I think this would make a good double bill with Legion. I would laugh my ass off.

    And Nick Cage as a 14th century crusader? I’m getting flashbacks to Keanu in Dracula, only more laughable and less painful. So much more interesting than a Romero remake.
