Check These Out: Six New Character Posters for 'Priest' Arrive
A week ago we featured the official trailer for Scott Stewart's upcoming adaptation of the Tokyopop manga Priest starring Paul Bettany as a warrior priest who hunts vampire creatures in a post-apocalyptic future. IMPAwards got their hands on a series of six character posters and considering I'm a fan of a good series of posters, I thought I'd toss these up today. First, that shot of Cam Gigandet above reminds me of Christoph Waltz from Green Hornet, with a gnarly double-barreled gun and all. Second, damn Lily Collins looks cute (lower middle). Third, can you tell that's Karl Urban as Black Hat? Because I can't! Check them out below.
Priest is an adaptation of the TokyoPop manga created by Hyung Min-woo. It fuses western genre with supernatural horror, gun fu, and dark fantasy themes and is notable for its unusual, angular art style. Here's the short logline: "In a world wrecked by centuries of violent warfare between man and vampire, a warrior priest turns against the church in order to save his kidnapped niece from a homicidal gang of vampires." So something about vampires and… you lost me. Although, it may be good because this Priest guy actually kills vampires. ScreenGems is making a big bet and has scheduled Priest for release on May 13th, 2011 (in 3D).
