Take a look at the new trailer RLJ Entertainment has dropped for Pilgrimage, a period action-drama starring Tom Holland and Jon Bernthal.

Set in 13th century Ireland, Pilgrimage tells the story of a young novice (Holland) who leaves behind his Irish monastery with a group of monks and a former Crusader (Bernthal) to deliver a holy relic to Rome.

It’s a little disconcerting how little buzz this one has generated since screening at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. The film has since had its UK DVD premiere on July 3. Still, it looks like a decent picture, with Spider-Man and The Punisher as leads and some strong Valhalla Rising-esque cinematography. It’s also good to have Richard Armitage in an antagonistic role. We’ll see.

Pilgramage will open in the US on August 11.

Synopsis for Pilgrimage:

Leaving his Irish monastery for the first time, a young novice (Tom Holland, Spiderman: Homecoming) departs with a devoted group of monks and a mysterious former Crusader (Jon Bernthal, “The Punisher”) as they attempt to transport a holy relic to Rome. Threatened at every turn by savage tribes, traitorous Norman soldiers and those that seek the power they believe the relic holds, the young man finds surprising courage while faced with deadly challenges that will push his body, mind and spirit to the breaking point.
