I’m an unapologetic, unabashed fan of Nicholas Cage. The man is just money. So when a new trailer or poster for a Nic Cage movie comes along I get all giddy like a schoolgirl. Today, for Season of the Witch, we get both so I might need to go lie down.
Set in the middle-ages the movie sees Cage play a knight who has recently returned from the Crusades and sees his land destroyed by plague. The locals blame a local girl whom they brand a witch, and turn to Cage to bring her far from their land.
So Nic Cage in a bad wig, faux historical setting and the supernatural? Brilliant! Sir Christopher Lee and Hellboy star Ron Perlman only ramp up the campy goodness.
The movie has a January release date in the US, but I’ve yet to see anything for Ireland. Stay turned for more…
Oscar winner Nicolas Cage (National Treasure, Ghost Rider) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hellboy II, Sons of Anarchy) star in this supernatural action adventure about a heroic Crusader and his closest friend who return home after decades of fierce fighting, only to find their world destroyed by the Plague. The church elders, convinced that a girl accused of being a witch is responsible for the devastation, command the two to transport the strange girl to a remote monastery where monks will perform an ancient ritual to rid the land of her curse. They embark on a harrowing, action-filled journey that will test their strength and courage as they discover the girl’s dark secret and find themselves battling a terrifyingly powerful force that will determine the fate of the world.
