WATCH: Kit Harington, Guy Pearce & Dakota Fanning star in new teasers for ‘Brimstone’
Starring Guy Pearce, Dakota Fanning and two Game of Thrones regulars, Dutch director Martin Koolhoven’s ambitious new horror Western flick Brimstone has just premiered at the Venice Film Festival. For those of us who’ll have to wait until its cinematic release, though, three new teaser clips have dropped, featuring Pearce and Fanning plus Kit Harington and Carice van Houten, who play Jon Snow and Melisandre in Game of Thrones respectively.
Entitled ‘Reverend in the House’, ‘The Whipping Scene’, and ‘Outhouse Murder’, the names of the creepy clips alone evoke Brimstone‘s themes of religion, violence, the wild west, and revenge.
Brimstone promises to take viewers on a nightmarish journey into frontier life, as a mute wife and mother (Fanning) turns fugitive after being wrongly accused of a crime she didn’t commit, and is hunted by a wrathful priest (Pearce).
The film has received mixed reviews so far, which was somewhat inevitable, considering its controversial, violent content teased above.
We’ll have to make our own minds up when the film hits UK theatres later this year. Check out more production images from Brimstone below.
