Take a look to the first official poster of Apostle, the upcoming thriller movie starring Dan Stevens, Lucy Boynton, Mark Lewis Jones, Bill Milner, Kristine Froseth, Paul Higgins, and Michael Sheen:
(Click on the poster to enlarge.)
“London, 1905. Prodigal son Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) has returned home, only to learn that his sister is being held for ransom by a religious cult. Determined to get her back at any cost, Thomas travels to the idyllic island where the cult lives under the leadership of the charismatic Prophet Malcolm (Michael Sheen). As Thomas infiltrates the island’s community, he learns that the corruption of mainland society that they claim to reject has infested the cult’s ranks nonetheless – and uncovers a secret far more evil than he could have imagined. Written and directed by Gareth Evans (THE RAID), APOSTLE is a harrowing occult fable where the only thing more horrifying than madness is the sinister reality behind it.”
The tree with the bodies reminds me of the tree of pain from Dan Simmons’ Hyperion Cantos. So I guess that man is not unlike the Shrike…
The film is written and directed by Gareth Evans.
The release date of the movie is set to October 12, 2018 (on Netflix).
Stay tuned for updates.
