I seriously can't believe it's been a whole year since the first trailer for Nicolas Cage's Season of the Witch was released. I forgot the movie even existed until today when this trailer was released. The film is a supernatural thriller that follows a 14th century Knight as he transports a girl suspected of being the witch behind the Black Plague to an abbey of monks trained in exorcising demons.
This new trailer makes the movie look a lot more interesting than the first one did, but Nicholas Cage is still in it, and it looks like the Academy Award winning actor manages to do a terrible job in the part he is playing. It's really hard to take him seriously in these kinds of roles.
The film was directed by Dominic Sena, and also stars Ron Perlman, Stephen Campbell Moore, Claire Foy, Stephen Graham, Ulrich Thomsen, and the great Christopher Lee.
Oscar(r) 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.
The film is set to be released on January 7th 2011. Watch the new trailer below and let us know what you think!
