Hellfire and ‘Brimstone’: Guy Pearce Is An Off-Kilter Man of the Cloth in Creepy New Exclusive Clip — Watch

The thrilling new Western is riding into theaters this Friday.


With an impending release this Friday, Martin Koolhoven’s “Brimstone” promises to be an enticing take on the classic Western. With a hefty runtime and secrets to spare, “Brimstone” should stir up its own kind of hellfire.

Set in the troubled inferno of the old American West, the story follows Liz (Dakota Fanning) a young woman accused of a crime she didn’t commit. Forced into a life as a fugitive, Liz must escape the menacing acts of the town’s vengeful Reverend (Guy Pearce).
