Black Plague was originally released in 2002 as Anazapta in Germany and in the UK in 2007, now it finally makes its splash in the US. The new image reminds one of Game of Thrones.

The year is 1348, and the horrors of the Black Plague grip the entirety of Europe. English and French troops rage vicious battle across the continent at a time when human life is only as valuable as the ransom it can summon, and death, suffering, and war ravage the landscape.

A beautiful English noblewoman, Matilda (Lena Heady - Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), is devastated when her aging husband is taken hostage by French troops. When their son Nicholas returns from the battlefield with a hostage of his own - the son of a powerful French lord – Matilda attempts to broker a prisoner exchange through the greedy local Bishop.

After nearly killing his French hostage in a drunken rage, Nicholas is discovered dead, his body covered in horrifying boils, a victim of the merciless pestilence. But when the English authorities examine the injured hostage, they make horrifying discoveries of their own…ancient words blistered onto his back, and an inverted cross carved on his chest. It soon becomes clear that the Black Plague ravaging their country may be the least of their fears…

Not only does the poster remind me of Game of Thrones, with Sean Bean sitting in the chair instead, but Lena Headey almost starred with Sean Bean in Black Death. Amazingly enough another movie about the plague as well, but she left the role and was replaced by Carice van Houten prior to filming.
