Inside you’ll find a look at the first ever pics from Sony Screen Gems’ The Covenant, which stars Sebastian Stan, Steven Strait, Toby Hemingway and Chace Crawford. Directed by Renny Harlin, and hitting theaters September 8th, the film is set at “Spencer Academy, a New England boarding school for the region’s reigning elite. It tells the story of the Sons of Ipswich, four young students bound by their sacred ancestry. As descendants of the original families who settled in Ipswich Colony in the 1600s, the boys have inherited special powers—but the one hitch is that the misuse of these powers can shorten their lives and, once they turn 18, can actually kill them. When the body of a dead student is discovered after a party, secrets begin to unravel and the covenant of silence that protects them is threatened. Will the boys become victims of their own supernatural gifts?
