Watch: Badass Red Band Trailer for Medieval Action Movie 'Ironclad'
"Only the weak believe that what they do in battle is who they are as men." Deadline has debuted a bloody new red band trailer for Jonathan English's medieval action movie Ironclad, starring James Purefoy as one of the Knights Templar who must defend the Rochester Castle against the tyrannical King John, played by Paul Giamatti. We featured an early trailer for this back in February, but this trailer is so much better. With HBO's Game of Thrones now part of my Sunday evenings, I've got to say, I'm so much more excited to see more brutal, badass medieval action like this. Seriously, check this out, it looks badass! Noo surrender!!

In addition to Purefoy, Ironclad also stars Paul Giamatti, Brian Cox, Robert Carlyle, William Moseley, Jason Flemyng, Bob Hoskins, Pete Postlethwaite and Kate Mara. Apparently in the film Giamatti is "in pure Shoot 'Em Up snarling-villain mode, facing off against the noble and true James Purefoy." And although this has a low budget, Empire promises that it's "a gritty and compelling British action flick." This was directed by Jonathan English, of Minotaur and Nailing Vienna, from a script by English and Erick Kastel. Ironclad has already hit theaters in the UK, and ARC Ent. will release in US theaters on July 8th, plus VOD on June 1st.
