SOLOMON KANE Comic Con 2009 Panel
During the Comic Con 2009 panel for SOLOMON KANE, we got a chance to take a look at an exclusive trailer, which unfortunately looked just average and not that exciting.
We also got take a look at a few clips, which showed fighting scenes with Solomon Kane (James Purefoy), and other various ones on his journey.
One of the clips featured Solomon and the family he is traveling with on the road, when they get to a town that has been all burned down. They cut the clip right before the reveal moment. In another clip Solomon tries to protect the family, but the daughter gets kidnapped.
After seeing all the clips for the movie, I’m not really convinced that this is something I would want to see, but I definitely think there is an audience for it.
The panel for Solomon Kane included producer Samuel Hadida, director/writer Michael Basset, and James Purefoy.
Here are some of the highlights from the panel:
– In the movie, Michael Basset decided to tell the origin of Solomon Kane, which isn’t really explored in the book. He admitted to taking a few liberties with the story.
– By the end of the story, the character is the Solomon Kane that Robert E. Howard intended. The story is about getting him to that place.
– In the movie, Solomon Kane starts out very confident until he meets someone that almost drags him to hell. He then spends most of the movie trying not to go to hell. It’s a redemption movie.
– At some point in the movie, Solomon Kane fights a man on fire, which was a pretty surreal experience for James Purefoy since he was literally fighting a man on fire.
