A look at the U.S. poster for Solomon Kane

News headlines don't get any more on the nose than that. But really, that's what this story is all about. It's a story about a poster for the upcoming fantasy epic Solomon Kane. No more, no less.

I say upcoming loosely as Shawn and I reviewed Solomon Kane back on our September Special in 2010 and film sites have been writing about the adaptation of Robert E. Howard's character since the flick was announced back in 2007.

Directed by Michael J. Bassett and starring James Purefoy, Solomon Kane has screened internationally for years and played at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2009, but never received a theatrical release Stateside.

Word has it that Solomon Kane will hit VOD on Friday and receive a limited theatrical release on Sept. 28 via Radius, a new division of The Weinstein Company. And thank freaking Christ as this movie needs to be seen! It's great B-grade swashbuckling entertainment.

But enough chatter. Here's the poster!

And hey, let's spin a preview for this flick while we're at it shall we? Yes. Lets.
