Season of the Witch New Trailer
Season of the Witch is an upcoming supernatural thriller film, directed by Dominic Sena, and starring Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman. It was shot on location in Austria, Hungary, and Croatia.
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 (Robert Sheehan) join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl.
Limited pre-release screenings began December 2009. As the movie is delayed, the film was picked up by Rogue and will be released on January 7, 2011.
