Tom Holland and Jon Bernthal Star in First ‘Pilgrimage’ Trailer
RLJ Entertainment has released the first trailer for Brendan Muldowney’s indie medieval road movie Pilgrimage, which will be debuting at Tribeca Film Festival this Sunday.
Set in the religious times of 13th century, the film stars Jon Bernthal, Richard Armitage and Tom Holland in the story of a small band of monks who must ensure that they bring a legendary artifact with biblical origins across Ireland.
John Lynch, Stanley Weber, Lochlann O’Mearain, Hugh O’Conor, and Eric Godon co-star. Jamie Hannigan wrote the script. Pilgrimage will hit theaters and VOD on August 11. If you like the action cinema bathed with the blood of savior and its victims, check out the trailer below.
A small band of Catholic monks keep to a solemn routine on a remote Irish coast. Then a stranger arrives. He comes wearing the white robes of the Cistercian order, bearing papers, and demanding the unthinkable. The Irish have no room to argue. “Rome has spoken,” says the Cistercian. “There is no debate.” From this foreboding prologue, director Brendan Muldowney creates an extraordinary period drama crossed with action-laced road movie.
Travelling through a 13th-century Irish countryside filled with warring clans and Norman conquerors, the monks bring their land’s most sacred relic to Rome. The pilgrimage offers the group’s youngest member a profound lesson, one of religious fervor, and the savagery of men who see themselves as soldiers with a cause, who train their ambition on a single, powerful object.
