Anthony Hopkins uses his razor-sharp intuition to track down a serial killer in the new U.S. trailer for "Solace," an investigation thriller that also stars Colin Farrell, Abbie Cornish, and The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
The film, which has been pushed back and delayed for more than a year, follows two FBI detectives (played by Dean Morgan and Cornish) as they investigate a series of bizarre murders, involving an enigmatic serial killer.
Hopkins plays a retired physician-turned-psychic who is called in to help. While using his psychic abilities -- along with several pieces of key evidence, he's able to surmise that the murderer (Farrell) also has a special ability: he can foresee the future. Which begs the question, how do you catch a killer when he always several steps ahead of you?
Directed by Brazilian action helmer Afonso Poyart (Two Rabbits) -- it's the director's first English-language film, "Solace," which has already been released in several markets outside of the U.S., will be made available in the States next month, on December 16.
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.
