Here is our first official preview for the upcoming comicbook adaptation The Covenant from Sony Screen Gems.
The Covenant Poster, Trailer and Synopsis
In 1692, in the Ipswich Colony of Massachusetts, five families with untold power formed a covenant of silence. One family, lusting for more, was banished - their bloodline disappearing without a trace. Until now.
Directed by Renny Harlin and written by J.S. Cardone, The Covenant tells the story of the Sons of Ipswich, four young students at the elite Spenser Academy who are bound by their sacred ancestry. As descendants of the original families who settled in Ipswich Colony in the 1600's, the boys have all been born with special powers. When the body of a dead student is discovered after a party, secrets begin to unravel which threaten to break the covenant of silence that has protected their families for hundreds of years.

The Covenant reminds me of what would happen if you mixed a dark graphic novel adaptation to the likes of Underworld with your standard high school teenie-bopper film. The film looks like it could have its moments, but the target audience definitely seems young(er).
