Guy Pearce Western Brimstone picks up momentum for March release

Brimstone Guy Pearce Dakota Fanning

We've been keeping an eye on Martin Koolhoven's Western thriller BRIMSTONE since it picked up production in Summer 2015, so we're delighted that we don't have to wait much longer to be able to check it out. Momentum Pictures (who just recently picked up THE POSSESSION EXPERIMENT, so they're on a roll) has acquired the flick and plans to put it out in theaters and on VOD in March 2017.

Says Momentum Pictures’ Senior Vice President of Content Ian Goggins:

Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce’s strong performances truly capture the work and vision of filmmaker Martin Koolhoven. We couldn’t be more proud to release BRIMSTONE so that audiences can experience this amazing piece of cinema.

The story:

Liz has a quiet country life on a farm with her kind-hearted husband and children, but we immediately sense that things are too good to be true. One Sunday, a mysterious new reverend gives his inaugural sermon, and Liz fills with terror; her past has come back to haunt her. Following the service, a local woman goes into labour on the church floor. Through no fault of Liz’s, the birth goes woefully wrong. When the woman’s husband seeks revenge, the reverend comes to the rescue of Liz and her family — though he warns that punishment will soon befall her. The next day, the family’s sheep are found slaughtered, Liz is sequestered, and her daughter is kidnapped. Thus begins a nigh-biblical sequence of events involving blood, fire, and an epic years-long odyssey spanning states and territories.

BRIMSTONE stars Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Kit Harington, Carice van Houten, Paul Anderson, Jack Roth, Carla Juri, and Emilia Jones.
