The epic fantasy, action-adventure Solomon Kane is released by Entertainment In Video on rental DVD on 14th June and retail DVD and Blu-ray on 28th June 2010. The title character of this dark and brooding tale is based on a collection of poems and short stories by Robert E Howard. This iconic American writer, whose other stellar pulp fiction creation is Conan The Barbarian, is widely regarded as having invented the sword and sorcery genre.

The movie stars James Purefoy as Solomon Kane (A Knight's Tale; Vanity Fair and TV's Rome), Mackenzie Crook (Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll; Pirates of the Caribbean : At Worlds End; City of Ember), Max von Sydow (Shutter Island; Robin Hood), Pete Postlethwaite (Brassed Off; Clash of the Titans; In the Name of the Father; The Constant Gardener), Jason Flemyng (Kick-Ass; The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and Rachel Hurd-Wood (Dorian Gray; Perfume : Story of a Murderer).

Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th Century killing machine and anti-hero. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England across the Continents in war after war.

The story begins with Kane and his band of mercenaries carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. However, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle and plunder its rumoured riches, his mission takes a fateful turn.

One by one, Kane's men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil's own Reaper -- dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to Kane's hopelessly corrupt soul. Although he eventually escapes the Reaper's clutches, he knows that he must now redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.

His newfound spirituality and conversion to Puritanism is quickly put to the ultimate test when he embarks on a journey across an England ravaged by diabolical human Raiders who are controlled by a terrifying, masked Overlord.

When Kane fails to thwart the brutal slaughter of the Crowthorns, a Puritan family that has befriended him, he vows to find and free their enslaved daughter Meredith (Rachel Hurd-Wood) even if it means jeopardizing his own soul by re-embracing his violent past for a higher cause. His determined search eventually brings him face to face with his family's own deadly secrets as he attempts to save Meredith and all of England from the forces of the evil Overlord.
