Frankly, I didn’t expect a whole lot from Dominic Sena’s “Season of the Witch”, especially after the teaser trailer surfaced last month. And oh yeah, the movie stars Nicolas Cage, and when that’s the case, there’s an 80-20 percent chance he’s going to sleep walk his way through the movie, all the while daydreaming about all the wacky things he could buy with his paycheck. (In case you haven’t heard; Nic Cage is pretty much broke.) When even Ron Perlman can’t make your movie look decent, you know you’re in trouble. Of course, the fact that it focuses too much on Nic Cage’s bored face and dialogue delivery doesn’t help. Via Lionsgate, here’s the full trailer for “Season of the Witch”.
14th-century knights transport a suspected witch to a monastery, where monks deduce her powers could be the source of the Black Plague.
Starring Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Stephen Campbell Moore, Robert Sheehan, Claire Foy, Ulrich Thomsen, Stephen Graham, and directed by Dominic Sena.
The witch casts her spell March 19, 2010.
