Brimstone Trailer

"Retribution is coming." An official trailer has debuted for an indie western titled Brimstone, from Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven, which premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals. Brimstone stars Guy Pearce as a violent, ruthless, vengeful preacher who rules over a small town in the Old West. Dakota Fanning plays Liz, a woman "full of heart and grit" who resists his demands and figures out how to fight back. Also starring Kit Harington as the man that comes to save the town, plus Carice van Houten, Paul Anderson, Carla Juri and Emilia Jones. This looks like a very dark drama that retaliates against religious persecution. I'm stunned by how gnarly Pearce looks as the preacher. Don't want to mess with him.

Here's the first official trailer for Martin Koolhoven's Brimstone, direct from YouTube (via TFS):

Brimstone Movie

A triumphant epic of survival and a tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth. Our heroine is Liz (Fanning), carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, hunted by a vengeful Preacher (Pearce) - a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis. But Liz is a genuine survivor; she's no victim - a woman of fearsome strength who responds with astonishing bravery to claim the better life she and her daughter deserve. Fear not. Retribution is coming. Brimstone is both written and directed by Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven, of Winter in Wartime, Happy Family, Bonkers, South and De grot previously. The film first premiered at Venice and Toronto Film Festivals this year. Momentum Pictures will release Brimstone in select theaters staring March 2017. Who's interested?

Ah, mad Christians, good to see them getting a bit of screen time. Kit's accent is bit dodgy.

Madness of Christianity is a big part of history on the West. And this trailer shows that very good. And Guy Pearce in it does it even better than expected ...
