Black Death (2011)

The year is 1348. Europe has fallen under the shadow of the Black Death. As the plague decimates all in its path, fear and superstition are rife. In this apocalyptic environment, the church is losing its grip on the people. There are rumors of a village, hidden in marshland that the plague cannot reach. There is even talk of a necromancer who leads the village and is able to bring the dead back to life. Ulric (Sean Bean), a fearsome knight, is charged by the church to investigate these rumors. He enlists the guidance of a novice monk, Osmund (Eddie Redmayne) to lead him and his band of mercenary soldiers to the marshland, but Osmund has other motives for leaving his monastery. Their journey to the village and events that unfold take them into the heart of darkness and to horrors that will put Osmund’s faith in himself and his love for God to the ultimate test. More »

    Yeah, Sean Bean's had a lot of great little parts, glad to see him starting to be the main character in more films. Also glad to see Eddie Redmayne getting more screen time, he was great in Pillars of the Earth

    A dark Templar Film, set in the middle ages, about secrets and rumors about the black plague, Sean Bean is also a great actor (Lord of the Rings) Hope this Film is as good as it looks! Can't wait for it's release in the U.S. :)

    And I liked him before Lord of the Rings as the villain Trevelyan in GoldenEye.

    Would you guys count this as a 2010 or 2011 movie because this has already been released in the UK...?
