We’re pretty used to seeing Guy Pearce playing the good guy, but he makes a rather convincing A-hole in the latest trailer for Martin Koolhoven’s Brimstone.
In the upcoming drama, Pearce plays an intimidating and exacting Reverend who strikes fear into the hearts of the citizens in a small town, accusing a young mother (Dakota Fanning) of a crime she never committed.
While Pearce and Fanning are huge names, Game of Thrones fans will be more excited to see Kit Harrington and Carice van Houten in the Western flick. Pearce is a terrifying figure in the trailer, as his Reverend exacts twisted punishments on those he perceives as sinners. But not everyone is taking it lying down, as seen when Fanning’s Liv brandishes a gun.
Brimstone will be released later this year.
