IRONCLAD (2011) UK Movie Trailer: Paul Giamatti, James Purefoy

James Purefoy, Ironclad

The Ironclad UK Movie Trailer has premiered. Jonathan English‘s Iron Clad (2011) stars Paul Giamatti, James Purefoy, Kate Mara, and Jason Flemyng. Ironclad (2011)’s plot synopsis: “The year is 1215. King John (Paul Giamatti) has been forced to sign the Magna Carta, a document that will ensure the freedom of men and form the basis of common law in England. Furious at having been forced to sign it, King John raises a vicious mercenary army and begins a rampage across the country to regain total power. But as the King’s army is on the brink of reaching London and taking back control of the country, one last castle stands between him and inevitable victory: Rochester. Gathered together by Baron Albany (Brian Cox), a small band of rebel warriors gather inside Rochester intent on holding off King John until reinforcements arrive: a Templar Knight (James Purefoy) whose soul is wracked with guilt over the atrocities he has committed during the crusades and his burgeoning feelings for Isabel (Kate Mara), the beautiful lady of the castle and lonely wife of the aging Reginald de Cornhill (Derek Jacobi); battle-hardened mercenaries such as Beckett (Jason Flemyng), who fight not for God and country, but for money and bloodlust; and young soldiers like Guy (Aneurin Barnard), who’ll taste blood and battle for the first time – and perhaps the last.” This movie trailer foretells a film whose quality is up in the air. It certainly doesn’t look like its on the level of the Kingdom of Heaven Director’s Cut. It looks more along the lines of Centurion and Season of the Witch. Check out the Ironclad UK movie trailer below  and leave your thoughts on it. Ironclad will be released on March 4, 2011.

  • This is going to be good. Purefoy sure likes these medieval adentures:)

  • So do I! Lol.

    I thank the Lord its not on a par with Kingdom of Heaven, which was a horrific mutilation of history. It may be standardised plot, but at least a seminal story of England and English freedom can be told. I’m bored of evil Templars, Muslims and Englishmen.

  • I wasn’t commenting on historical accuracy but on the acting and the quality of the DC’s script.

  • Dizzy B

  • IMDb says March 4, 2011.
