Anthony Hopkins is back in the serial killer business in Solace trailer

Anthony Hopkins, of course, knows a thing or two about brilliant serial killers, having played the role of Hannibal Lecter multiple times. Now he’s back on that beat with Solace. Hopkins stars as John Clancy, a psychic hunting a murderer (Colin Farrell, looking serene) who shares those gifts. The set-up seems a bit like a CBS procedural: He has visions! They both have visions! Still, it’s rated R, so we’re also likely in for some gruesome, yet potentially meaningful, victim shots à la Se7en. Also featured in the trailer—a slow motion bullet.

The film also stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Abbie Cornish as the FBI agents along for the ride. Solace is due out December 16.
