New In Theaters - January 7th, 2011

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Stephen Campbell Moore & Christopher Lee
 Directed by Dominic Sena for distribution by Relativity Media

The Plot: Two soldiers (Cage & Perlman) return from the Crusades to find their home decimated by a plague.  Convinced a cursed young woman is to blame, the town elders task the pair with escorting her to a faraway monastery in an effort to save their people.

The Final Word: Nicolas Cage is hurting for a hit and unfortunately for him I just don’t see this being it. This is eerily reminiscent of the 2006 “Wicker Man” remake which also starred Cage and was given just as terrible of a release date. The only wild card here is Ron Perlman, the “Sons of Anarchy” and “Hellboy” star does have a strong cult following, but that audience coming out for this could be a long shot.
