Actors Tom Holland, Richard Armitage, and Jon Bernthal have traded in spandex and fantasy worlds for the dangerous lands of 13th century Ireland in the trailer for PILGRIMAGE.
Set in 1209 AD, the film follows a group of Irish monks — including Holland’s the Novice and Bernthal’s the Mute — as they undertake a mission to transport a holy relic to Rome but as things become more treacherous and the true nature of the relic is revealed, loyalties are tested.
Armitage seems to be playing a soldier of some kind, perhaps of the Roman variety, and clashing with Bernthal’s character (who is quite fit and aggressive for a monk).
The trailer has some beautiful cinematography, although it’s not very cohesive and it’s difficult to grasp what the movie is actually about — although in an age where there are endless complaints about trailer giving away too much, perhaps this is for the best.
