Season of the Witch Trailer 2 Season of the Witch Trailer #2 Promises (Silly) Supernatural Action

Nicolas Cage so rarely makes throwaway action films that it’s a wonder the Oscar-winner’s latest flick, the supernatural adventure Season of the Witch, has had its release delayed for this long.

Yes, we kid, but there’s a new trailer for Mr. Cage’s medieval horror actioner – which finally hits theaters early next year – and it features lots of cheap CGI, uninspired action, and a lame, Jaws-inspired one-liner that, sadly, isn’t as funny as one might hope.

Season of the Witch revolves around Behman (Cage) and his friend Felson (Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman), a pair of warriors that return from the Crusades only to find their home ravaged by the Plague. Local church leaders point the finger of blame at a mysterious girl and order the warriors to transport her to a secluded monastery, where she will have her witch powers forcibly removed. Behman agrees to the task, though he remains suspicious that all is not as it seems – which, of course, turns out to be the case as the girl nurses a dark secret that will affect the very fate of his world.

Cage reunited with his Gone in Sixty Seconds director Dominic Sean for Season of the Witch and, if the trailer is any indication, the results are pretty bland. The film looks inane, no doubt, but a mindless ancient world adventure pic with Cage running around in yet another silly wig might not be a bad way to pass the doldrums of January. Might Season of the Witch still be worth a look?

Watch the trailer below and decide for yourselves:

Drive Angry 3D arrives in theaters less than two months after Season of the Witch, so moviegoers might be more than a little weary of seeing Cage up on the big screen after the first quarter of 2011. The actor has a couple more titles on the way, including his return as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, so he won’t be out of work anytime soon.

While Cage was good fun as Big Daddy in Kick-Ass, the actor has otherwise starred in mostly forgettable pics for several years. We’re certainly not expecting Season of the Witch to be a return to form for the man, but it would be nice to see him at least be a bit more selective about his roles in the future.

  1. Doenst look too bad… but did anyone else notice that a majority of the action in the trailer was from the Crusade battle in the beginning of the movie?

    • i did as well… does this mean that the rest of the movie will be cheesy dialogue? if i was a betting man, ild bet my car thats all the rest will be… so who wants to bet that there will be only one fight after the beginning?… anyone?… anyone?… youre all smarter then i look… lol!!!

  2. I think I’ll be checking this movie out. The witch is intriguing to me, because she doesn’t seem entirely evil, and if she has some real depth of character, then her interactions with Cage and the band transporting her will be quite intense and entertaining to watch. I’m looking forward to that element of the movie…but other than that, I agree it looks like another hum-drum Cage flick.

  3. Cant wait!!!!

  4. “You know, I like history too, and maybe when this is all over you and I can stop by the souvenir shop together but right now I just… I just wanna find some WITCHES! “

    • …what I’m dealing with here is one of the most deadly substances the earth has ever known, so what say you cut me some FRIGGIN’ SLACK?
      lol! I heart The Rock.

  5. Medevil, sword n sorcery, Ron Pearlman…I like

    Nicolas Cage with a truly terrible american accent…phail! lol

    Seriously, why Cage? Could have been a fantastic vehicle for a decent British Actor.

    Oh well.

  6. ehhh doesnt look that bad but ill see it

  7. Esta película se ve BUENISIMA !!!
    Alguién dice por ahí que es otra película monótona de Cage, no se a que se puede referir ya que Nic Cage no tiene películas monótonas, todo lo contrario! Nicolas Cage es un gran actor y estaré esperando su estreno para ir a verla al cine. Será difícil la espera.

  8. Kind of a mix between Willow and King Arthur and creative interpretation. :) Trailers can make anything look good, so I hope this isn’t deceiving our eyes because of swift punctured editing and music and dialogue.

  9. Call me crazy, but this reminded me alot of van helsing, the setting (past) the supernatural stuff, and an over rated front man? :)
