The new snippet gives a preview to the journey of Nicolas Cage and his on-screen comrade, Ron Perlman, in transporting a girl blamed for causing the Black Plague in their homeland.
Lionsgate Films has released a new trailer for supernatural thriller "Season of the Witch". While the previous teaser only managed to introduce some characters of the film, the full theatrical trailer debuted by Fandago gives a look at the journey of a group of knights in transporting an accused witch as well as the obstacles that come in their way.
A 14th century Crusader, Lavey, returns with his comrade Felson to their homeland just to find that it is left devastated by the Black Plague. As church blames sorcery as the cause of the plague, the two knights are ordered to transport an accused witch called The Girl to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence.
On the mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl, they are joined by a priest, a grieving knight, an itinerant swindler, and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight. But, a horrific discovery at the abbey jeopardizes their pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.
The two knights, Lavey and Felson, are portrayed by Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman. Meanwhile, Stephen Campbell Moore, Ulrich Thomsen, Stephen Graham and Robert Sheehan are in supporting roles. Directed by the helmer of "Gone in Sixty Seconds" and "Whiteout", the film will invade U.S. theaters on March 19, 2010.
