It has been a long time coming for Michael J Bassett's Solomon Kane. When the big screen adaptation of the classic Robert Howard character arrived at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2009 it was with a great deal of anticipation. Unfortunately it also happened to arrive when the industry was in the midst of a major financial squeeze and distributors simply weren't buying. And so, much like Sean Byrne's The Loved Ones - which also premiered in the TIFF Midnight Madness lineup that year and won the Audience Award - Solomon Kane was left to simply sit on a shelf. Which is a shame because it's rather a lot of fun.
James Purefoy plays the title role, a former mercenary who has turned to faith in a desperate attempt to save his soul from the devil. But sometimes evil needs to be fought and in such times what good needs is a man capable of violence ...
The first trailer for the film was unveiled during Comic Con. Check it out below.
