From director Chris Smith
Well, the UK released of Black Death shifted to avoid clashing with Season of the Witch, but at the end of the day, it was Chris Smith’s period tale that came out on top. Season was bumped to an indefinite release and Death opens across the pond on June 11. Here’s an exclusive clip IGN premiered in anticipation of its release. Click on the title link above for photos.
Set in an apocalyptic medieval world, Smith’s film is the story of a band of brothers whose quest is to hunt down a necromancer against the backdrop of the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England. A young monk is sent to investigate rumors of people being brought back to life, meanwhile a mercenary arrives in the same village. Against the backdrop of the peaceful village lies a pact with the forces of darkness, orchestrated by the village ruler.
