Anchor Bay Entertainment and RADiUS-TWC announced today the Blu-ray and DVD release of Solomon Kane.

The film was directed by Michael J. Bassett (“Da Vinci’s Demons” and Silent Hill: Revelation 3D) and stars James Purefoy (“The Following”), the late Pete Postlethwaite (In the Name of the Father), Rachel Hurd-Wood (Peter Pan) and Max von Sydow (The Exorcist). The character Solomon Kane was created by pulp-era writer and mind behind Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard. Solomon Kane heads to retail on July 16, 2013.

Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents. As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored 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 his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.

Solomon Kane Blu-ray and DVD special features include a ‘Making Of’ featurette, interviews and commentary with Director Michael J. Bassett, the producers & cast, a deleted scene, gallery images and Special FX featurette!
