Trailer: Guy Pearce is out to punish Dakota Fanning in Brimstone

Brimstone Martin Koolhoven Guy Pearce

Writer/director Martin Koolhoven's Western thriller BRIMSTONE is a film I have been looking forward to ever since writing a casting news article about it a year and a half ago, as the idea of a Western about an evil preacher instantly appealed to me. The wait for the film is almost as over, as Momentum Pictures is planning a theatrical and VOD release for BRIMSTONE on March 10, 2017.

With that release not far off, a trailer for the film has arrived online, and its 2 minutes are an engrossing examination of the atmosphere Koolhoven captured for the film and a showcase of the intensely creepy performance Guy Pearce appears to have delivered as the evil preacher.

Dakota Fanning, Emilia Jones, Carice van Houten, and Kit Harington co-star in the film with Pearce, working together to bring the following story to life:

Wrongly accused of a crime she didn’t commit, a frontier woman turned fugitive is hunted by a vengeful preacher in the menacing inferno of the old American West.

The MPAA's R rating at the head of the trailer promises that the film contains "brutal bloody violence, strong sexual content including disturbing behavior, graphic nudity, and language." Sounds like the makings of a great March viewing experience to me.
