First Trailer for ‘Brimstone’ with Guy Pearce & Dakota Fanning

Martin Koolhoven's Western

A new international trailer has arrived online for Momentum Pictures’ newly acquired Western-from-the-female-perspective, titled Brimstone, starring Guy Pearce as an evil religious zealot who accused Dakota Fanning‘s character of a crime she didn’t commit.

Also starring Kit Harington of “Game of Thrones”, Carice van Houten, Paul Anderson, Carla Juri and Emilia Jones, the Martin Koolhoven‘s film premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals and will ride into theaters early next year.

I can’t say I’m a big fan of western movies, but this trailer turned on my interest in the genre. Check it out in the player below.

Martin Koolhoven's Western

Liz has a quiet country life on a farm with her kind-hearted husband and children, but we immediately sense that things are too good to be true. One Sunday, a mysterious new reverend (Guy Pearce) gives his inaugural sermon, and Liz fills with terror; her past has come back to haunt her. Following the service, a local woman goes into labour on the church floor. Through no fault of Liz’s, the birth goes woefully wrong. When the woman’s husband seeks revenge, the reverend comes to the rescue of Liz and her family — though he warns that punishment will soon befall her. The next day, the family’s sheep are found slaughtered, Liz is sequestered, and her daughter is kidnapped. Thus begins a nigh-biblical sequence of events involving blood, fire, and an epic years-long odyssey spanning states and territories.
