Wait, didn't this already come out? You might have seen the trailer for "Season of the Witch" late last year before Lionsgate pulled the film from its previously scheduled March 19, 2010 release date. No reason at the time was given for yanking the film, but now that a trailer has arrived it's pretty obvious why it was taken out of a prime spring date and dumped in the wasteland of early January.

Wait, didn't this already come out? You might have seen the trailer for "Season of the Witch" late last year before Lionsgate pulled the film from its previously scheduled March 19, 2010 release date. No reason at the time was given for yanking the film, but now that a trailer has arrived it's pretty obvious why it was taken out of a prime spring date and dumped in the wasteland of early January.

Directed by Dominic Sena (who directed Cage in "Gone In Sixty Seconds" and also helmed "Swordfish"), the film centers on a pair of medieval knights ordered to accompany a mysterious young woman accused of witchcraft to a remote abbey for trial. And we know what you're thinking but no, this isn't a period retelling of the Christine O'Donnell story. We nearly fell asleep in the middle of this trailer; hasn't this movie been made about 15 times in the past two or three years? Anyway, if watching Nicolas Cage and his fellow thesps walk around mangling some faux iambic pentameter is your bag, then this is probably for you.

"Season Of The Witch" will hit theaters on January 7, 2011. You can check out the synopsis and trailer after the jump (or watch it in HD at Apple).

Oscar(r) winner Nicolas Cage (National Treasure, Ghost Rider) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hellboy II, Sons of Anarchy) star in this supernatural action adventure about a heroic Crusader and his closest friend who return home after decades of fierce fighting, only to find their world destroyed by the Plague. The church elders, convinced that a girl accused of being a witch is responsible for the devastation, command the two to transport the strange girl to a remote monastery where monks will perform an ancient ritual to rid the land of her curse. They embark on a harrowing, action-filled journey that will test their strength and courage as they discover the girl's dark secret and find themselves battling a terrifyingly powerful force that will determine the fate of the world.
