Lionsgate has released a tense new trailer for its supernatural thriller Solace.

Directed by Brazilian filmmaker Alfonso Poyart (Two Rabbits) from a script by Sean Bailey (Tron: Legacy) and Ted Griffin (Ocean’s Eleven), the movie boasts a nifty little ensemble cast that includes Sir Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World, Westworld), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural, The Walking Dead), Abbie Cornish (Limitless) and Colin Farrell (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them).

Hopkins plays the role of a retired doctor with psychic powers who has to hunt down a dangerous murderer played by Colin Farrell, a man who also possesses some extraordinary abilities of his own. It’s actually great to see Hopkins be on the side of the angels -- in that case he's with the FBI -- instead of the other way around (and yes, by that I’m actually referring to his iconic role of Hannibal Lecter). Solace is set to open in movie theaters and VOD on Dec. 16.

When FBI Special Agent Joe Merriwether (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is unable to solve a series of homicides, he decides to enlist the help of his former colleague Dr. John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), a retired physician with psychic powers. The reclusive Clancy, who shuttered his practice and retreated from the world following the death of his daughter and subsequent break-up of his marriage, wants nothing to do with the case. He soon changes his mind after seeing disturbingly violent visions of Joe’s partner, FBI Special Agent Katherine Cowles’s (Abbie Cornish) ultimate demise. When Clancy’s exceptional intuitive powers put him on the trail of a suspect, Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell), the doctor soon realizes his abilities are no match against the extraordinary powers of this vicious murderer on a mission.
