Sorry, this is a different SEASON OF THE WITCH. No evil corporations hell bent on trying to murder small children by using pieces of stone henge and latex masks here. No, this SEASON OF THE WITCH has the brunette bomber Nick Cage doing what Cage does best. Acting his ass off!...
Said best by our friend Ryan Rotten over at STYD, the new poster below looks a bit generic and Cage looks like he walked off the set of LORD OF THE RINGS. Unfortunately, that is more than likely where the similarities to the great Tolkien inspired films stop. Remember this has Nic Cage in it. We are getting ConAir acting here at best! God it feels good to take shots at Cage, are personal nemesis. Feast on the new poster, synopsis and trailer below.
SEASON OF THE WITCH stars Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Stephen Campbell Moore, Robert Sheehan, and Claire Foy. It is directed by Dominic Sena, written by Bragi Schut, Jr., and produced by Charles Roven and Alex Gartner.
The plot crunch and trailer can also be found below; look for the film in theatres on January 7, 2011!
Plot Synopsis: Lionsgate's supernatural thriller Season of the Witch stars Nicolas Cage as medieval knight Behmen, who undertakes a mission pitting him against a devious witch and making him the last hope for the world against an ancient and dark force. His faith broken by years of battle as a crusader, Behmen returns to central Europe to find his homeland decimated by the Black Plague. While searching for food and supplies at the Palace at Marburg, Behmen and his trusted companion, Felson (Ron Perlman), are apprehended and ordered by the dying Cardinal to deliver a young peasant girl believed to be the witch responsible for the Plague to a remote abbey where her powers can be destroyed. Behmen agrees to the assignment but only if the peasant girl is granted a fair trial. As he and five others set off on this dangerous journey, they realize with mounting dread that the cunning girl is no ordinary human and that their mission will pit them against an evil that even in these dark times they never could have imagined.
