Lionsgate just dropped the trailer for Solace, and we could all use a little solace right now. To grab our attention, they’ve brought together a bunch of actors from popular TV shows — Anthony Hopkins (Westworld), Colin Farrell (True Detective), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead) — and Abbie Cornish. They set those actors to work on a premise we’ve seen before but wouldn’t mind watching again if it’s Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell squaring off in weird dreamscapes.
When FBI Special Agent Joe Merriwether (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is unable to solve a series of homicides, he decides to enlist the help of his former colleague Dr. John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), a retired physician with psychic powers. The reclusive Clancy, who shuttered his practice and retreated from the world following the death of his daughter and subsequent break-up of his marriage, wants nothing to do with the case. He soon changes his mind after seeing disturbingly violent visions of Joe’s partner, FBI Special Agent Katherine Cowles’s (Abbie Cornish) ultimate demise. When Clancy’s exceptional intuitive powers put him on the trail of a suspect, Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell), the doctor soon realizes his abilities are no match against the extraordinary powers of this vicious murderer on a mission.
If Lionsgate had known more about HBO’s Westworld when they made this, do you think they would have set at least half of those psychic vision scenes in the Wild West? It couldn’t hurt, is all I’m saying.
