It looks like Van Helsing, except not retarded.
That's because most people aren't very bright.
They'd probably not go see this if they realized it was from a series of pulp novels older than their parents.

Was there anything more badass than plague doctors in the middle ages?

I'm really afraid this will suck. Which is a shame, the stories were Howard's best work, and the Puritan glowering asskicker was a great character.
The movie appears to be partially based or inspired on the first Kane story, "Red Shadows" but is infused with the more outlandish supernatural/horror aspects found in the later stories. It's like little bits and pieces of the Kane mythos combined into a single movie. I personally have no problem with this as I like the character and I don't care if the story is made-up so long as it retains the "spirit" of Kane. I think the trailer is badly made, but the movie itself I have been following the development of for some time.

Wrong. Sailor Steve Costigan is his best stuff, and a big-budget movie would be preferable to Indy 5 (which is happening.)
This looks like a Lord of the Rings re-skin.

The only reasonable puns I can come up with are for "Quaker" but he was a Puritan, so I'll just have to keep them to myself for now.

I'm sure the stories were good (wouldn't know), but this looks like something I'd fall asleep to. It's a good trailer, as far as trailers go, it's got all the elements to keep someone interested, but it's just not interesting to me.

This got pretty decent reviews at the Toronto film festival. Here's hoping it's at least a decent waste of an afternoon.

I never imagined him that greasy and unkempt. The specter of Peter Jackson's Aragon strikes again, I guess.
Yeah. Dude is a Puritan, he needs to be clean shaven. Like, in the morning after killing a hell-spawned monstrosity, he needs to get all cleaned up. That's a fucking montage right there.

oh holy fuck yes

So are these fucking books any fucking good or what? I'm a fucking Conan fan.
If you like pulp fiction in the vein of Weird Tales, the Solomon Kane stories are very good. They are good supernatural mystery/adventure stories.
Howard is public domain in Australia, so go check out some stories at Project Gutenberg Australia:
