Cue the comic book humor, kids! The latest trailer for Brendon Muldowney’s period adventure thriller, Pilgrimage has arrived and so the internet will surely run nowhere short on Spider-Man and Punisher tie-in banter with actors Tom Holland and Jon Bernthal leading the cast with actors Richard Armitage, John Lynch and Stanley Weber.
Ireland, 1209. An island on the edge of the world. A small group of monks begin a reluctant pilgrimage across an island torn between centuries of tribal warfare and the growing power of Norman invaders. Escorting their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome, the monks’ progress is seen through the eyes of a pious young novice and a mute lay-brother with a violent past. As the true material, political and religious significance of the bejewelled relic becomes dangerously apparent, their path to the east coast becomes increasingly fraught with danger. The monks belatedly realise that in this wild land of ancient superstitions, the faith that binds them together may ultimately lead to their destruction.
The film is poised for its day at the Tribeca Film Festival before heading to a limited theatrical release on August 11 courtesy of RLJ Entertainment.
