We interrupt our regular scheduling for some urgent screencapping!
Pilgrimage is here, just a couple of days prior to its premiere at Tribeca Film Fest in New York. Just as I am complaining about the calm and starting up my own entertainment. I am currently undecided whether I am more excited about seeing gorgeous Connemara on screen, or about seeing gorgeous RA
Beautiful – and very evocative for a medieval thriller. If you want to see the area, you should play around with the newly re-launched Google Earth. It gives you a virtual drone-view of the area. The image under the Pilgrimage title looks as if it is a view of the “Twelve Bens” mountain range from the West (i.e. the coast):
Anyway, more importantly, we get a glimpse of Raymond de Merville. Hip haircut, Raybo!
Some intense, Guy-worthy scowling… (could Raybo be an ancestor of Guy’s? Striking family resemblance!)
Is that on Raybo’s forehead actually a neck- Igelfutz back-to-front?
I have to say that I – perversely – find scars really sexy.
Gorillas in the mist??? Wait, no, a gaggle of Normans in the morning dew *coughs*
The trailer for further reference:
First impressions upon watching: A movie for the boys – suspense, fighting, gore, lots of lads. Ok, but seriously. This is the sort of film I would watch even if it *weren’t* for Armitage. Set in a beautiful part of the world in one of my favouritest places in the world. Historical action mixed with suspense and road-movie-ness. Mind you, I must admit that I am not necessarily a fan of gory fight scenes. But I guess these are to be expected in a film targeted at grown-ups and set in the 13th century. The trailer certainly succeeds in making me feel curious – who are the monks faced with? Are the Norman soldiers their protectors or something else? Who do they have to fear more – the wild men of the woods, or the Norman companions? What is the role of that Cistercian monk played by Stanley Weber? And will Raybo survive until la fin???
I wish Pilgrimage and its makers all the best for the film festival, and I hope the mist will lift soon… *swoon*
