Must Watch: First Red Band Trailer for Paul Bettany's Legion
Remember that badass banner from Comic-Con that had Paul Bettany on it as the Archangel Michael carrying an MP5? Well a polished version of the first red band trailer they showed during Comic-Con has officially debuted online today (via MySpace) and I'm pretty sure everyone just needs to check this out. The movie is called Legion and it also stars Dennis Quaid, Kevin Durand, Tyrese Gibson, Adrianne Palicki, and Doug Jones (as the creepy Ice Cream Man from the beginning). This looks a bit better than it did during the Con, but I just still can't get into it. It's way too B-movie horror for my tastes, but I expect others to dig it.
Watch the first red band trailer for Scott Stewart's Legion:
Having lost faith in the human race, a legion of angels descend to Earth to bring about the Apocalypse. Humanity's only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a diner and the Archangel Michael himself.
Legion is directed by first-time feature filmmaker Scott Stewart, a former visual effects artist who worked on films like Sin City, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Iron Man. The screenplay was co-written by Stewart and former editor Peter Schink with the short film Gotham Cafe being his only past writing credit. Sony Pictures will be bringing Legion to theaters everywhere starting on January 22nd, 2010 early next year. Excited?
