An Alternative Solomon Kane Poster Arrives Dripping with Atmosphere

Post Thumb:


Now that the long awaited Solomon Kane is finally heading to VOD on August 24th with a limited theatrical release following on September 28th, a new poster has arrived to welcome the film to the US. Dig it!

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 alongside James Purefoy in Michael J. Bassett’s tale of a 16th Century Puritan tormented by his past evils.

Captain Solomon Kane (Purefoy) is a brutally efficient 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 (Hurd-Wood) — even if it means jeopardizing his own soul by re-embracing his murderous talents 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.

    Not bad. Not great, but not bad.

    I’m just guessing that the movie isn’t quite as overtly racist as the original short stories… If you picked three random Kane stories (not that there are many to choose from) I guarantee two of them would feature Kane fighting ape-like black warriors. Sure, the Conan stories had a bit of that crap, but not to the extent of the Solomon Kane tales…or maybe it just feels that way since Howard didn’t write nearly as many Kane stories as he did tales of Conan.
