Based on the evidence available in the film's trailer, Swank has officially left her Oscar-winning past far behind, and is now involved with red rivers, plagues of locusts (among other things), and what just might be the worst exchange ever committed to celluloid ("Are you gonna kill ... my baby [girl]?" "No!" " ...Why not?"). According to the IMDb, her character is "a former Christian missionary who lost her faith after her family was tragically killed, and has since become a world-renowned expert in disproving religious phenomena." Don't worry, though: The events in the film make her faith come back, and she'll undoubtedly unite with the good people around her to end the plagues and restore God's grace to a little southern town. Take that, evil!
The Reaping comes out in the US in early November.
