Preview – Gunpowder

Kit Harington

It is 1603, and as England wars with Spain and the bloody persecution of Catholics intensifies, a young nobleman resolves to avenge his kin and defend his faith by any means necessary.

As the king’s network of spies close in on them, Catesby (Kit Harington) and Wintour (Edward Holcroft) attempt to raise an army for their plot across mainland Europe. Returning to London with Guy Fawkes in tow, Catesby assembles his gang of plotters for the first time.
