This is a big Comic-Con for Paul Giamatti, who will be in San Diego promoting producer David Fincher’s “The Goon” as well as the upcoming Jonathan English flick “Ironclad.” MTV already brought you the exclusive teaser for “The Goon,” and now we have an exclusive sneak peak at the footage that will be shown tonight at the “Ironclad” panel.
The film follows the siege of Rochester castle by King John in the year 1215, with Giamatti playing the king. It’s described as a “medieval ’Magnificent Seven’ that combines the visceral action of ’300’ with the impassioned heroism and romance of ’Braveheart,'” which can be seen to some extent in the clip. The first part of the clip shows Giamatti threatening the castle, and then it switches to the siege of the castle — and a new hairstyle for King John.
If you’re here in San Diego, you can check out the full footage at the panel tonight from 8:30 pm PST to 9:30 pm in room 7AB. Filmmakers Jonathan English, Andrew Curtis and Rick Benattar will all be on hand to speak about the film.
