Solomon Kane The Movie!?

Yesterday, to my surprise I came across a trailer for Solomon Kane the movie.  Solomon Kane is a puritan, hell bent on revenge and has many supernatural adventures as he tries to scourge the earth of evil.  Kane was originally created by Robert E. Howard of Conan fame.  I was first introduced to the infamous character earlier this year when I picked up Dark Horse’s, The Castle Of The Devil.  Written by Scott Allie, art by Mario Guevara, and the cover by Mike Mignola.  Yes, it was the Mike Mignola cover that caught my eye;)

The trailer looks awesome.  It’s also been sitting on the shelf, waiting to be released in the U.S. since 2009 (it was released in Europe 2009-2010).  That doesn’t necessarily mean its bad.  The Cabin In The Woods had the same problem and it turned out to be one of the most exciting horror films released this year.  Solomon Kane received a 82% rating on Rotten Tomatoes upon it’s U.K. release.  What do you think?  Does it look promising or do you think it will go the way of Jonah Hex?

Go ahead!  Watch the trailer below!  Also, The Castle Of The Devil and other Solomon Kane adventures are available for check-out!
