The production team behind Solomon Kane released a new image today alongside the announcement that they will be presenting footage of the film during their panel in Hall H on Saturday. Yet another thing making me jealous that I’m not there.

I can’t say that I know a ton about director Michael J. Bassett or his work, but I’ve been a major fan of Solomon Kane and his stories ever since I got to read them when I was in high school. They’re dark and mythic and epic. All about this 16th century warrior who owes his soul to the devil and plans on roaming the earth to fight evil wherever he finds it. Really fantastic stuff.

So of course a film version is welcomed! And so is this new image:

That looks awesome to me. I can only imagine this shot happens after a lengthy battle of some kind with a ton of sword play, some pistols being drawn, and some gun powder exploding everywhere. I absolutely love an old-time adventure feeling, and I think this is going to deliver.

The film stars James Purefoy as Solomon Kane as well as Pete Postlethwaite, Max von Sydow, and Rachel Hurd-Wood. And in case you needed more visual proof of Kane being a bad ass, here’s the poster:

So they are going to show a clip on Saturday at Comic-Con at their 12:15 Hall H panel. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and keep an eye out for reactions. Soon after Comic-Con, the movie will be playing at the Toronto Film Festival.
