Next year promises a varied crop of original horror films. Among them? Season of the Witch starring Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman and Claire Foy (look for an appearance by Christopher Lee, too!). Bragi Schut’s screenplay was widely sought after many years back, now it’s finally reaching the big screen on March 19 from Lionsgate and under the direction of Dominic Sena.

– Season of the Witch (2010): Posters & Covers
Following up on the teaser trailer that appeared online last month, Lionsgate has released a full-length trailer for Season of the Witch, which hits theatres on March 19, 2010.
In Season of the Witch, Nicolas Cage stars as a 14th century Crusader who returns with his comrade (Ron Perlman) to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence.
A priest (Stephen Campbell Moore), a grieving knight (Ulrich Thomsen), an itinerant swindler (Stephen Graham) and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight (Robert Sheehan) join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl.
When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardizes the knight’s pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.

First look into the forthcoming supernatural film Season of the Witch has come out in the form of a teaser trailer. Brought forth by IGN, the sneak peek is less than a minute long and mostly centers its attention at some of the film’s cast ensemble, Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman and Claire Foy.

Thanks to my friend Luciana, we have HQ screencaptures from Claire’s guest appearance in the pilot episode of Being Human.
Being Human is a supernatural drama from the BBC that revolves around the concept of two young men—Mitchell and George–sharing a flat. While this seems like a tried and tested formula for television the twist is that Mitchell (Aidan Turner – The Tudors) is a vampire and George (Russell Tovey – Little Dorrit, The History Boys) is a werewolf. Complicating matters further is pair’s newfound home is haunted by the ghost of Annie (Lenora Crichlow – Sugar Rush).
The “complete” series 1 is already available on DVD in the UK, but… while this is a great show, its DVD release is shockingly poor. This is a terrible DVD “complete” set, one of the very worst lack of efforts they’ve ever done. The BBC did an astounding job of producing extra material for this show for their website (short features filmed specially for the site showing some of the history of the leads prior to the show, actors filming behind the scenes diaries, etc) and for BBC3 (the excellent Unearthed documentary and the pilot episode that started the whole thing). And NONE of it is on the “complete” DVD. On top of that, much of the distinctive music from the show which helped set the atmosphere has been replaced with bland stock stuff.

During the “2009 Winter TCA Tour”, which took place early January 2009, LA-Story.com had the chance to interview Claire Foy about all things ‘Little Dorrit‘ as well as a little about ‘Season of the Witch‘. The video interview was published on their website in late March – which was when ‘Little Dorrit‘ started airing in the US. Be sure to watch the interesting 12-min interview and enjoy our screencaptures in the gallery. Thanks Joe for the link.
The interview which was done a few months ago shows off Claire Foy after a long day of interviews and still she’s got the light, joy and wonder of all that is occuring in her life as her acting is becoming more in demand. She is fabulous!
