If it feels like we've been waiting for serial killer flick Solace a long time, it's because we have. For a year it's basically been getting punted around the release calendar, which is not a good sign considering the cast is phenomenal with Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Abbie Cornish, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. For now it's set to arrive in just a few weeks, and considering three of its stars are in more-popular projects (Westworld, 'Fantastic Beasts', The Walking Dead) it's a good time to drop another trailer.
Directed by Afonso Poyart, the film finds Farrell as a serial killer clashing with Hopkins, who plays a physician with psychic powers. F'real.
When FBI Special Agent Joe Merriwether (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is unable to solve a series of homicides, he decides to enlist the help of his former colleague Dr. John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), a retired physician with psychic powers. The reclusive Clancy, who shuttered his practice and retreated from the world following the death of his daughter and subsequent break-up of his marriage, wants nothing to do with the case. He soon changes his mind after seeing disturbingly violent visions of Joe’s partner, FBI Special Agent Katherine Cowles’s (Abbie Cornish) ultimate demise. When Clancy’s exceptional intuitive powers put him on the trail of a suspect, Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell), the doctor soon realizes his abilities are no match against the extraordinary powers of this vicious murderer on a mission.
Solace hits theaters and VOD on December 16th, so you can decide whether to see it or 'Rogue One'.
