Updated! The Saturday And Sunday Screenings Of SOLOMON KANE At The NBFF Have Been Canceled!

Beaks here...

4/24 Update: Unfortunately, the ash cloud currently wreaking havoc with travel to and from Europe has forced Michael J. Bassett to cancel his appearance at the Newport Beach Film Festival. And since he was traveling with the print, this means that the film will not be able to screen at either showing this weekend. The festival organizers are currently looking into arranging a special screening sometime in the near future. I'll be sure to let y'all know if that comes to pass. My apologies for any confusion over the last twenty-four hours. Volcanos suck.

Alright, folks. Here are the twelve lucky people who will be seeing SOLOMON KANE this weekend at the Newport Beach Film Festival...

Saturday Screening - 5:45 PM at Edwards Island Cinema (In Fashion Island)

Alexander Tiro Susan Sifers Jonathan Gwyn Traci Gwyn Christopher Davis Issa Moody Scott Endicott Heather Endicott Donald W. Cooper III Jocelyn Brown Cooper John O'Day Ashlee O'Day

Sunday Screening - 8:30 PM at Regency South Coast Village Theater (across from South Coast Plaza

Kestrel Breiler Sean Paulsen James Kiang Elbert Coulson Adam Soto Christina Montojo John Mullenfeld Heather Orellana Andrew Culotta Dan Sinclair Joe Tuzzolino Sheli Tuzzolino

Thanks to everyone who sent in emails. Hopefully, we'll have more screenings down in the O.C. area soon! For more on the Newport Beach Film Festival, check out the official site.

    It's canceled people. The director Michael J Bassett and the film print itself cannot travel cause of the stupid volcano in Iceland. Sux!

    I have seen the cancellation, but do we have

    by Lang The Cat

    confirmation? Anyone seen any other confirmation? Otherwise, I am still heading down.

    Hollywood needs to stop cock teasing and just make CASTLEVANIA!

    Solomon Kane = Van Helsing?

    by nukeboy1970

    This is one of the stupidest statements I have seen repeated on here. Just fucking moronic. It shows a complete lack of comprehension of who Solomon Kane is. Here is a clue. Val Helsing ripped off the Solomon Kane concept and look. If you think it is the other way around, you are a fucking idiot.

  • April 24, 2010, 5:06 p.m. CST

    Soloman Kane is nothing like Van Helsing

    by Amazing Maurice

    Don't let the trailers fool you.<p>It's gritty and low budget. There's no Hollywood popcorn glaze about this film at all.<p>Its also mostly great.

  • April 24, 2010, 6:40 p.m. CST

    Of course the "volcano" cover story is bullshit.

    by dasaroo

    Whatever reason this guy is not coming to the US, that ain't it. There are no flights from Europe currently being canceled- they've been back to normal levels for days now. Sure, during the worst few days of the eruption, anyone who's flight was canceled got caught in the backlog. But once flights resumed, people with existing reservations had no problem leaving on schedule. Ergo, I call bullshit on this guy's story.

  • April 24, 2010, 9:24 p.m. CST



    Fuck you bitch! Fuck you and your stupid little faggot solomon Kane crush. This movie is going to suck balls like you, Van Helsing, and your dad.

  • April 24, 2010, 9:29 p.m. CST

    I've never seen anyone get that crazy...


    over a movie comment outside of a Transformers talkback. Nukeboy must be a real unstable crazy bitch. This movie is going to cult classic status here.

  • April 24, 2010, 9:31 p.m. CST

    Van Helsing + Solomon Kane = Van Solomon

    Don't you EVER..

    by Traumnovelle

    ..EVER say volcanoes suck. Volcanoes are AWESOME.

  • April 25, 2010, 2:24 a.m. CST


    by nukeboy1970

    Once again proves what a fucking idiot he is. Why don't you google Solomon Kane so you can realize what a fucking retarded thing it is to say Van Helsing is getting ripped off?

  • April 25, 2010, 7:32 a.m. CST

    dasaroo are you an idiot?

    by Mr_P

    Flights are nowhere near back to normal,there are people stranded all over the world because of the backlog which is going to take weeks to clear. Utter halfwit

  • April 25, 2010, 8:48 a.m. CST

    This film is cursed!

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    The pits of Hell have belched up an ash storm to prevent "Solomon Kane" from being seen in the States!

  • April 25, 2010, 10:10 a.m. CST

    nukeboy1970 you're a queer dude


    and your movie is going to suck. And I'm pretty sure Bram Stoker's Ven Helsing predates Solomon (A Magazine Character for Christs Sake)by at least 30 years. Now go play with your Bratz dolls

    Unfortunate news

    by AsimovLives

    I really liked SOLOMON KANE. It's not a great movie, it will not change anything about cinema, but it was two damn fun hours at the cinema. The movie is honest, it shows good filmmaking skill, and in James Purefoy it has an action actor ready to be big. And it's not just the brawl that's good, he acts the hell out of the part to kingdom come. Proof again that even for playing badass ass-kickers you need acting chops. This movie was great fun for me.

    Comparing SOLOMON KANE to VAN HELSING...

    by AsimovLives

    ... is very fucking stupid. Very fucking stupid. Only a retard moron would do that. Or somebody who never saw either VAN HELSING or SOLOMON KANE. And it would still be stupid.

    saw it at AFM

    by Jarek

    It's a fun film, but certainly a disappointment.

    Your mom doens't count as a GF. I know you like her massaging your prostate as she blows you, but it still is wrong. The rest of us date outside the family. And read books. Which is why we know your comment about Bram Stoker's Van Helsing is just as much drivel as anything else coming out of your mouth. Better let you go so you can get back to licking your mom's cunt.

  • April 26, 2010, 8:09 a.m. CST



    Dude you're a total pussy. You must get molested and beat up a lot. Fuck you and your two gay dads. I hope you stop breathing in your sleep tonight or maybe your BF/Dads will pump that anus extra hard so you can die of internal bleeding. Van Helsing does predate Soloman Kane, and if you think that a Nickle Magazine character like Solmon was an original idea...I guess you have Brain cancer. Cheers Pussy!

  • April 26, 2010, 1:02 p.m. CST



    And you clearly do know everything, please bestow some of your awesome wisdom upon me. It's always the same with you nerds on AICN: "I'm the Smartest!!!" Bagel13 don't you have star wars dolls to play with?

  • April 26, 2010, 5:52 p.m. CST


    by nukeboy1970

    The only Van Helsing resembling Solomon Kane is in the movie Van Helsing. That movie ripped off Solomon Kane's character for the witchhunter look. Van Helsing in Dracula is nothing like this at all. If you had read Dracula, you would realize that it is stupid to claim the movie version is anything like the book version. As everyone else but you seems to realize, Solomon Kane was ripped off for the movie Van Helsing.

  • April 26, 2010, 5:54 p.m. CST


    by nukeboy1970

    The stupidest insult on here is calling someone a nerd. Newsflash. If you are a talkbacker on AICN, you are a geek. Intelligence may vary.

  • May 4, 2010, 11:03 p.m. CST

    You guys are lucky you missed this.

    by PornKing

    This movie is straight to dvd material. Van Helsing looks like a masterpiece in comparison.
