We recently got an exclusive look at the first trailer for director Dominic Sena's (Whiteout) long-delayed supernatural thriller, Season of the Witch, and now a creepy new clip has been released that reveals the plot's quest. Academy Award–winner Nicolas Cage stars as Behman, a 14th-century knight who returns from the Crusades to find his homeland wracked with disease and death. In this new clip, Behman and his stalwart companion, Felson (Ron Perlman), are summoned before Cardinal D'Ambroise (Chrisopher Lee) and told that the plague is caused by the foul magic of a witch (Claire Foy) who practices the black arts. The two Crusaders must transport her to a a distant abbey, where monks will attempt to use an ancient tome to destroy the witch's powers and end the plague once and for all.
Season of the Witch was written by Bragi F. Schut, creator, producer, and writer of the Threshold TV series. The cast includes Ulrich Thomsen, Robert Sheehan, Stephen Graham, and Stephen Campbell Moore.
