Watch: James Purefoy in the First UK Trailer for Medieval 'Ironclad'
No Surrender!! Our friends at HeyUGuys have debuted the first official UK trailer for Jonathan English's Ironclad. We've been waiting to see the trailer for this hardcore indie medieval action flick ever since that badass photo of James Purefoy was released over a year ago. Purefoy stars as one of the Knights Templar who must defend the Rochester Castle against the tyrannical King John, played amazingly in this by Paul Giamatti. The trailer looks fairly badass, especially if you love medieval action flicks. I'm looking forward to catching it, but don't expect anything besides typical medieval fighting. Check out the new trailer below!
Watch the first UK trailer for Jonathan English's Ironclad:
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 hits theaters in the UK this March, but as far as we know still doesn't have a US distributor or release date yet.
