Solomon Kane Trailer

An official full-length trailer for Michael Bassett's Solomon Kane that stars James Purefoy has finally debuted online today. A Russian dubbed version of this same trailer hit a few days earlier this week, but we decided to wait, and this US version finally showed up just before the weekend. While this is showing here at the Toronto Film Festival (where I hope to catch it), it probably won't hit theaters in the US sometime until 2010. I think this looks great, it just looks like a darker, more refined version of Van Helsing, with some Lord of the Rings-like fantastical elements, great action, and that's about it. I'm looking forward to it.

Watch the first official trailer for Michael Bassett's Solomon Kane from YouTube:

A 16th century Puritan, Solomon Kane is a somber-looking man who wanders the world with no apparent goal other than to vanquish evil in all its forms. His adventures, published mostly in the pulp magazine Weird Tales, often take him from Europe to the jungles of Africa and back. Does this look interesting?

Solomon Kane is both written and directed by Michael Bassett, who's directorial debut was Deathwatch in 2002 followed by Wilderness in 2006. I believe this was produced independently and doesn't have a US distributor. It's playing at the Toronto Film Festival this month, so we expect to hear more about it soon.

Hey, Christopher Lambert! I mean Tom Jane! I mean-- ah, you know.

Nick Gligor on Sep 11, 2009


looks like it could be pretty good. hopefully it doesn't turn out much like Van Helsing. Because it looks kindof like a mix of that and Hellboy

-Peter- on Sep 11, 2009


Looks impressive. We'll see...

Quanah on Sep 11, 2009


It looks better than I expected.

CatieLee on Sep 11, 2009


Movie looks pretty sweet - not cheapy at all. Purefoy looks a little stiff though.

Antioch on Sep 11, 2009


acting looks a little forced...but down

Trey on Sep 11, 2009


I predict a domestic box office take of 20 million, but they won't get any of my dollars.

Parker on Sep 11, 2009


I agree with #2. My thoughts exactly.

SuicidalOptimist on Sep 11, 2009


Looks aweseome. Reminds me of Lord Of The Rings actually. Can't wait to see this.

Vold on Sep 11, 2009


looks more like a ripoff of van helsing and lord of the rings than anything

jh on Sep 11, 2009


looks good. i'll be watching it.

beavis4play on Sep 11, 2009


is SALOMON IN ANYWAY RELATED TO THE BELOVED VAN HELSING ? or was he simply kicked off The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen....

PinkSushi on Sep 11, 2009


looks awesome, like a better version of van helsing..

ray on Sep 11, 2009


Van Helsing? Is that you?

N on Sep 11, 2009

Shelby on Sep 11, 2009

leiner on Sep 11, 2009

In_rainbows on Sep 11, 2009


Has Potential...

Kamish on Sep 11, 2009


Anyways, looks good. I'm interested!

Sabes on Sep 11, 2009


This looks like it's made after the story in the game "DIABLO"

Trey on Sep 11, 2009


i'm probably way off...but for some reason this reminds me of that french film, Brotherhood of the Wolf.

Batman on Sep 11, 2009


Looks pretty good.

bubblesfun on Sep 11, 2009


Uh-oh, Jason Flemyng. After seeing him chewing scenery on a season of Primeval, he's recently moved to my 'to avoid' list.

Chris on Sep 11, 2009


Brotherhood of the Wolf ruled, it's a bit like that with some LOTR and Van Helsing for good measure. Not for the flicks but will definitely watch.

Crapola on Sep 11, 2009



d'Oh on Sep 11, 2009


WOW I wasn't expecting that! Yeah he does have a bit of a Van Helsing looks but this looks more dark and bad ass then that, it actually looked damn good!

Richard on Sep 11, 2009


Looks good!!!

BLACKHOLE on Sep 11, 2009


This looks like the movie that Van Helsing was supposed to be

????? on Sep 11, 2009


Looks pretty cool.

Kevin on Sep 11, 2009


While he looks like Van Helsing again, this looks a HELL of a lot better than that shite.

Bauzer on Sep 11, 2009


I'm there. Looks sick.

TTEX on Sep 11, 2009


This looks very interesting, I want to see this.

Kenchi on Sep 11, 2009


This looks pretty good Purefoy to me always looked like the half brother of Hugh Jackman and Thomas Jane

PimpSlapStick on Sep 11, 2009


This is like Diablo the movie

Collin on Sep 11, 2009


I loved that nanosecond of devil that you saw Fucking trailers

Sebastiaan Vos on Sep 11, 2009


Looks fantastic, I'll be the first in line!

teddy on Sep 11, 2009


My type of movie.

Fisherr on Sep 11, 2009


Van Helsing, with some Lord of the Rings and a smidgen of Underworld. Actually, a Lot like Underworld. The action sequences, anyway.

Ely on Sep 11, 2009


I saw a Ringwraith! Not impressed, but better than I expected. Looks like a rainy day rent.

Brandon on Sep 11, 2009


First half of the trailer seems a rip-off from berserk (manga).

Robz on Sep 12, 2009


Rips off imagery from other media, agree with #41 it rips off Berserk a bit...

Movie Fan on Sep 12, 2009


It's just a rip off of dozens of different things... Looks a bit lame.

Will on Sep 12, 2009


The recent film version of Van helsing was more likely a copy of Solomon Kane given that Kane was created in the 1930s way before Van helsing was turned into just a guy in a hat, who fights vampires.

scotty on Sep 12, 2009


#13 Ha ha, that's exactly what I was gonna say. 🙂

D6 on Sep 12, 2009


Yep, I'm with #13 and #45. It immediately took me to Van Helsing, but a better version. Like the trailer. I'm interested.

Bry from Chi on Sep 12, 2009


If he really is a puritan, then saving someones or you own soul is impossible. Puritans believe in predestination, so pretty much god chooses if your saved or not when you are born and you can't do anything to change it. History FTW

PJ H on Sep 12, 2009


ummm....Purefoy is Brilliant! We need NA Distro NOW!

Clover on Sep 13, 2009


the finale looks like a boss-level in god of war. bah... why are movies TRYING to look like videogames now?

jin on Sep 13, 2009


Considering the basic design concepts for Van Helsing were based on the SK looks, this actually has a certain promise of living up to the legend behind it and may actually be a nice two hour experience. looking forward seing the film since it has been some time we have had that dark ages mood on the screen 😀 cheers

burak "Daequitas" on Sep 13, 2009


Solomon Kane has been around from the 1920s onwards. Those of you comparing him to Van Helsing / League of Extraordinary Gentlemen are laughable. I'm hoping this movie turns out to be a faithful reproduction of one of the biggest badasses of literary history. Find a few of Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane stories, if you like Conan, you'll love Solomon Kane. I plan on seeing it in the theater when its released.

Robert E. Howard on Sep 14, 2009


Nothing I haven't seen before. Not impressed.

NadaNuff on Sep 14, 2009


I might watch the first 30 min on TNT or something like that.

Nate on Sep 14, 2009


This is how I pictured Waylander to be set up except with better action scenes, his double winged crossbow and more bloodshed........and another actor......Oh well

sam on Sep 15, 2009


I see Solomon vs Hellsing in our not too distant future. 😛

dave13 on Sep 20, 2009


nice trailer, the movie seems to be pretty good.

Christ on Oct 3, 2009


i really really really want to see this. love james purefoy. please let it come out soon in the US.

red923 on Dec 3, 2009


Oh James, why the farmer Giles accent?
