Diary Date: Saturday 20th February 1:30 – 2:30pm

Actor JAMES PUREFOY will be celebrating the release of ‘Solomon Kane’ at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 20th February 1:30 – 2.30pm

RSC trained actor James Purefoy grabbed attention with his role of Mark Anthony in the BBC / HBO TV series ‘Rome’. As well as numerous TV appearances, his movie career includes ‘Resident Evil’, ‘A Knights Tale’ and the forthcoming ‘John Carter Of Mars’.

SOLOMON KANE, the epic fantasy adventure written and directed by Michael J. Bassett (Deathwatch), stars James Purefoy as the implacable title character, plucked from the imagination of Robert E. Howard (“Conan The Barbarian”), the father of the “sword and sorcery” genre. The action-packed tale of this roaming 16th Century scourge of all that is evil will be released by Entertainment Film Distributors across the United Kingdom on 19th February, 2010.

Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th Century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents. As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumoured riches, his mission takes a fateful turn.

Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics and Cult Entertainment have come to our London Megastore for signing events, including: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Terry Gilliam, Simon Pegg, William Gibson, Mark Millar, Guillermo Del Toro, Brian Froud and Stephen King.
