Guy Pearce and violent Westerns go hand in hand, and anytime he's in one it's worth checking out. His latest, Brimstone, sees him joined by a great cast that includes Dakota Fanning, Kit Harington, and Carice Van Houten in a film that looks like it will push the R-rated limits.
Directed by Dutch helmer Martin Koolhoven, the bloody frontier flick centers on a young woman accused of a crime she didn't commit. Pearce plays a vengeful Reverend who hunts down the woman as she flees across the Old West. Based on this trailer we can see why the MPAA rated it R for "brutal bloody violence, strong sexual content including disturbing behavior, graphic nudity, and language."
Brimstone hits theaters and VOD on March 10th.
