First Full Trailer for Tokyopop Movie 'Priest' with Paul Bettany
Okay, here's a trailer you just have to watch. A few days ago I caught the beginning of ScreenGem's panel for Priest, the new Tokyopop adaptation starring Paul Bettany. Unfortunately this futuristic vampire action-thriller is from the exact same team that brought us Legion, which looked (and was) so terrible that I didn't even care to see it. However, this trailer kicks ass, I'm seriously impressed, I actually really want to see this. I love the futuristic look of it, and the action just looks epic and entertaining. Maybe Legion was a chance for them to gain experience and this is the real movie they wanted to deliver. Who knows? Just check this out!
Watch the first full trailer for Scott Stewart's Priest:
Priest is an adaptation of the TokyoPop manga created by Hyung Min-woo. It fuses the 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 smething 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).
