In our favorite (and most exciting) Priest trailer yet, we get more than a kaleidoscope of action cuts—we get an extended fight sequence in which Paul Bettany takes on a band of some pretty gruesome vampires.
Worried that you'll be confused by the human/vampire war when Priest hits theaters May 13? Screen Gems must be a little concerned, too, because they got a heavy hitter to animate a 3-minute prologue that explains how the world of the movie came to be.
We got to screen 20 minutes of the new Paul Bettany film Priest at WonderCon in San Francisco. What did we see, and what did we think of it. Well, if you like your vampires terrifying, you're in for a treat.
The new trailer for Priest promises a movie that will deliver exactly what we need right now—an antidote for all those sparkly, pouty vampires that've been filling our movie and TV screens lately.
He's the James Bond of the clergy. He's got holy gadgets and badass moves (in slow-mo, no less) to spare. And the evil he's up against is real evil. As in vampires. Not the sparkly kind. The monstrous kind. The kind who rip and shred and feast on blood and flesh. Audiences at the San Diego Comic-Con got to see him in action in a new trailer. Now you can see it, too.
Paul Bettany sure used the F word a lot during his interviews at Comic-Con. But this wasn't a Mel Gibson-type rampage. He actually meant it as a good thing. Four times on the set of his latest movie, Priest, Bettany found himself screaming, "@#&$ me" with excitement!
That first official photo of Paul Bettany in Priest last month got us hungry for more—almost as hungry as the film's vampires, who've been waging a war against humans for centuries. Now, we've GOT more. And things are looking GOOD. (For us, at least, though not necessarily for the movie's characters.)
We've seen fuzzy set photos of Paul Bettany in Priest—the big-screen adaptation of the TokyoPop comic book set in a world ravaged by a centuries-long vampire/human war— and now the first official photo of the production has finally been released.
The movie version of Priest doesn't have much to do with the original comic, but the creator's OK with that.
A roundup of news in brief.
