First Short Teaser Trailer for Nic Cage's Season of the Witch
Another Halloween-specific trailer has hit today. Lionsgate has debuted a short teaser for Season of the Witch starring Nicolas Cage over on IGN. You may remember hearing about this movie already because we featured some photos from it last year. This teaser is only 30 seconds long, but it gives us a glimpse at the tone and style and a bit of the creepy story, which involves Cage taking that sweet young witch seen in the beginning to be killed (or something like that). It doesn't look bad but I guess it just doesn't look that good either. Not sure why, maybe it's Cage's hair, maybe it's the horrific tone, or the weird creatures. Thoughts?
Watch the first teaser trailer for Season of the Witch:
A 14th century knight (Nicolas Cage) transports a girl suspected of being the witch behind the Black Plague to an abbey of monks trained in exorcising demons. Also stars Ron Perlman and Stephen Graham.
Season of the Witch is directed by Dominic Sena, of Gone in Sixty Seconds, Swordfish, and Whiteout most recently. The screenplay was written by up-and-coming writer Bragi F. Schut, of the CBS show "Threshold" and only Charlie Thistle previously. Lionsgate will be bringing Season of the Witch to theaters everywhere starting on March 19th, 2010 next year, the same day as Hot Tub Time Machine. Will you be seeing this?
