There is only one devil you need to worry about in this blog post, and his name is Solomon Kane.
For your viewing pleasure, we've got an exclusive clip today from "Solomon Kane," the upcoming action movie based on the pulp hero created by Robert E. Howard. We don't want to spoil the whole shebang for you, but suffice to say the clip involves soldiers, demons and an extremely unhinged Kane with a very quick trigger finger. If you need a wake-up call in the form of a tension-filled clip, look no further than right here.
On top of the clip, "Solomon Kane" is having a special screening at Comic-Con tonight (July 13). It's at 9:15 PM at the Gaslamp Stadium 15 Pacific Theater, and it's open to the public. If you like what you see in the clip, and you're in the San Diego area, go check out the flick!
The synopsis for "Solomon Kane" is as follows:
CAPTAIN SOLOMON KANE is a brutally efficient 16th Century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents.
As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane’s men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil’s own Reaper -- dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.
His newfound spirituality, however, is quickly put to the ultimate test when he begins his journey across an England ravaged by diabolical human Raiders controlled by a terrifying, masked Overlord. After Kane fails to thwart the brutal slaughter of the Crowthorns, a Puritan family that has befriended him, he vows to find and free their enslaved daughter Meredith -- even if it means jeopardizing his own soul by re-embracing his murderous talents for a higher cause. His determined search eventually brings him face to face with his family’s own deadly secrets as he attempts to save Meredith and all of England from the forces of evil.
"Solomon Kane" hits VOD on August 24 and theaters on September 28.
