Black Death Trailer and Posters

21 December 2010 4:15 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Check out a new trailer and posters for Christopher Smith‘s fantasy-horror film Black Death in which Sean Bean plays a knight tasked with discovering the truth about a nearby village. Stories say that it is untouched by the black plague, and that it is led by a necromancer who can raise the dead. Eddie Redmayne is along for the ride, as a young monk meant to lead the knight to the storied village. But things don’t go quite as planned.

The film also stars Kimberley Nixon, Carice van Houten, David Warner, Andy Nyman, Tim McInnerny, John Lynch, Johnny Harris, Marianne Graffam, and Emun Elliot.

Synopsis: The year is 1348. Europe has fallen under the shadow of the Black Death. As the plague decimates all in its path, fear and superstition are rife. In this apocalyptic environment, the church is losing its grip on the people. There are rumors of a village, »

Sean Bean battles plague and necromancers in the red-band trailer for Black Death

20 December 2010 7:31 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Sean Bean is awesome. Sean Bean as 'Boromir' from The Lord Of The Rings is awesome. Sean Bean essentially playing a variant of Boromir in HBO's upcoming "Game of Thrones" is awesome. With the fantasy-horror film Black Death, the actor returns yet again with sword, armor, and beard in tow. How's it look? From director Christopher Smith (Triangle, Severance), the film also stars Kimberley Nixon, Eddie Redmayne, Carice van Houten, David Warner, Andy Nyman, Tim McInnerny, John »

Magnet Releasing is on to its Third Acquisition this Week with Black Death the Latest

20 October 2010 11:31 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Magnet Releasing (Survival of the Dead, Centurion) continues to snap up movies this week and the latest acquisition is the German shot Black Death. This film stars Sean Bean and Magnet will release this title in the Us in the first quarter of 2011 (January-April). Director Christopher Smith had some insightful thoughts to expression on the sale and on his film: "Black Death is a film that I am immensely proud of, and I’m so pleased it has found such a great home for its Us release...on the one hand it is a violent historical drama and on the other, a terrifying horror movie, in which the more realistically I shot the past, the more it reflected the present. A time when in spite of the fact people were dying of the plague, they still found the time to torture and kill each other” (Magnet). These are some very »

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

16 October 2010 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Brooklyn's Finest; Black Death; Frozen; The Collector; South of the Border

Being a diehard Richard Gere fan can be tough (Hachi: A Dog's Tale anyone?), but occasionally he reminds us why we fell in love with him. In Brooklyn's Finest (2009, Momentum, 18), Gere returns to form as one of three troubled cops, each facing a personal and professional crisis. He plays Eddie Dugan, disillusioned and days away from retirement, but suddenly saddled with a rookie to whom he must show the ropes. "Don't you want to do something good with your last few days?" asks his superior, to which Dugan replies: "No, not really."

Inevitably, the assignment leads to tragedy and chaos, with the possibility of redemption. "Instead of thinking 'B cop movie'," says a straight-faced Gere, practising his blinking in the behind-the-scenes extras, "we were thinking Othello and Richard III – big themes being played out with guys in uniform."

Black Death Infects UK DVD and Blu-ray on October 18th

5 October 2010 12:27 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

While I personally thought that director Christopher Smith’s impeccable filmmaking run took a stumble with Triangle, he came right back on form with Sean Bean in his newest release, Black Death, which lands on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK in a scant couple of weeks courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Read on for the pack shots and trailer!

Friends reunited: which actors should share a TV screen again?

27 August 2010 6:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox prepare to reunite on Cougar Town, which other on-screen pairings should follow suit?

In their Friends heyday you couldn't mention Jennifer Aniston or Courteney Cox without name-checking the other. They came as a pair; a great on-screen partnership. So news that Aniston and Cox are set to be reunited via Cougar Town – Aniston is to play Cox's therapist in the show – gave me cause for excitement. (We haven't seen them together since Aniston briefly acted with Cox in Dirt). But while I'm certainly looking forward to seeing Aniston and Cox acting together again, I must also admit to a niggling doubt. Will it work? Can they succeeded in reigniting old flames?

There are some actors who just seem to work perfectly together. Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton recaptured the brilliance of The League of Gentlemen in the even more disturbing Psychoville. Kelsey Grammer and »

Fantasia 2010: Black Death Review

23 July 2010 11:40 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

[With it already being commercially released in the UK, The Fantasia film festival brings Chris Smith's Black Death to North America, and here is James' review from our archives.]

Christopher Smith's fourth feature sees the director sticking broadly to the horror genre that made his name with 2004's Creep. A medieval Dirty Dozen (by Smith's own confession) set to the backdrop of the bubonic plague, Black Death moves into ground covered by The Wicker Man mid way through, making for an intriguing mix that never quite delivers on its juicy premise.

Sean Bean heads the cast as Ulric, an envoy to the Bishop, leading a ragtag band of Christian soldiers on a mission to explore a mysteriously disease-free village in an otherwise Plague-ravaged Britain. Enlisting the help of young monk Osmund (Eddie Redmayne)to lead them, these hardened and gruff troops head off in search of the village. Rumour has it a Godless 'necromancer' - someone able to bring the dead back to life - is responsible for the safety of its inhabitants. On arrival, some shocking discoveries »

Review: Black Death

This is the review of Black Death (directed by Christopher Smith and starring Sean Bean, Carice van Houten, Eddie Redmayne, Kimberley Nixon, David Warner, Andy Nyman, John Lynch and Tim McInnerny. Given the fondness that today’s audiences seem to have for apocalyptic scenarios and flesh-eating gore, it’s perhaps surprising that the bubonic plague has not prompted more cinematic plotlines. When it swept across Europe in the mid-14th century, it resulted in religious paranoia, murderous fear and the death of millions. Seeking to redress this omission comes the simply titled Black Death. »

Not a bad journey into hell: Black Death movie review

30 May 2010 2:46 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Year: 2009

Directors: Christopher Smith

Writers: Dario Poloni

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by: Ben Austwick

Rating: 8 out of 10

Chris Smith is a director with a tight release schedule, the premier of Black Death coming less than a year after the premier of Triangle at last summer's Frightfest. This is the economic reality of being an up-and-coming director nowadays, tighter budgets and smaller profit margins meaning more work and less time to chase perfection.

This has tripped some film makers up. Nicholas Refn's recent Valhalla Rising, in many ways a similar film to Black Death, was let down somewhat by a rushed second half. Chris Smith seems to have a tighter grip on the production process, and although Black Death shows some of the imperfections of a punishing schedule, it is on the whole atmospheric and well constructed with an intelligent, thought provoking finale.

Black Death is set in fourteenth century Europe, »

Review: Black Death

27 April 2010 12:22 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Black Death (2010)

Stars: Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean, John Lynch, Tim McInnerny, Carice van Houten | Written by Dario Poloni | Directed by Christopher Smith.

The Abbot: Even if you do make it back alive, the outside world will change you. Osmund: Maybe that’s what I want.

With those portentous words, Black Death really gets underway. Set in the 1300s, it tells the story of young monk Osmund (Redmayne), leaving the confines of his monastery to lead Sean Bean and his group of church paid-soldiers to a local village that has not yet been affected by the plague, amidst rumours of necromancy. For Osmund, Bean’s request for help comes as a sign from God that he has a purpose in the outside world, a sign he looks for after sending his girlfriend (and we suspect lover) away from her local village to what he hopes is safety.
