Solomon Kane is finally getting a US release.
The movie, based on Robert E. Howard’s short stories (first published in Weird Tales), hit international theaters back in 2009, but for some reason was never released in the States. It stars James Purefoy as the wandering 16th century hero who owes his soul to the devil. The late Pete Postlethwaite, Max von Sydow and Rachel Hurd-Wood co-star. It’s gotten favorable reviews, scoring an impressive 83% at Rotten Tomatoes, so it’s even more of a mystery why it took so long to arrive on our shores.
Solomon Kane will hit video on demand on August 24 and theaters September 28.
The latest trailer was released at this year’s Comic Con.
