Priest Trailer

This rather badass trailer for Scott Stewart's Priest, based on the Tokyopop comic, first debuted at/during Comic-Con, and we featured a post on it back then, but it has since been pulled. However, Screen Gems has now debuted a "second" official trailer for Priest, which you can check out below. It still looks as good as it did at Comic-Con, which is surprising because I thought Stewart's Legion looked like crap last year, but this looks like they really took the visuals and action to the next level. I'm not sure if it'll be a hit next summer, but you never know. I'll be hoping for the best, I want this to be awesome! Check out the new trailer below.

Watch the second official 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 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).

  • Since this movie is coming out during the week before Pirates 4 comes out, then i would assume that some time this month or next month a teaser trailer for Pirates 4 will be released on the internet?, or will there be one released for Pirates 4 on December 17th, 2010 Friday, when Tron Legacy comes out to theaters?.

    I'm sure the movie itself will just be mindless crap..... . but it'll be fun. The action looks pretty freakin sweet.
  • I liked some of the shots is way looking a wee bit like frames from a manga, possibly not 'thee' manga, but definitely the angles were good. I'd totally watch this and eat it up. Looks like a big bucket of bingo from me!
  • McWilly
    "Bad Ass" sums it up!
  • movie mike
    It looks ok. Better then legion but not by much. Action does look really strong though
  • Deathtoll 2010
    Wait.. . these vampires don't glitter?! Fucking awesome!
  • max s.
    i agree with everyone here BADASS!!! #15 i second that
  • Jon A.
    Nope. This will draw in 30-45 mil. And the reviews will be mediocre or worse.
  • Xerxex
    Jon A. clairvoyant? then shut the fuck up. lol.
  • Alice
  • ek

  • 8=D
    the guy from legion? hell no! that movie was complete shit
  • Xerxex
    um...8=D please tell me you are joking...please. Paul Bettany is a top of the line actor.
  • Mr.Cookie
    @Xerxex He didn`t save Legion from being complete crap, though. Not sold on Priest yet. It could have been a hit if the release date wasn`t just idiotic (it should defiently have stayed in March). Seriously, Screen Gems, what were you thinking when you placed it there?
  • f
    Paul Bettany AND Karl Urban?! Dayuuung, they are both so sexay. I'll watch it for them.
  • Simon
    It's not "Tokyopop" Hyung Min-woo is Korean!!!!!
  • silver
    I'm gonna be skeptical until I actually see this because Legion was terrible, and this is coming from someone who would defend G.I. Joe
  • Paul Bettany is a great drama actor ... and he is doing good making action and horror movies too ... He is not like the other action actors who just depends on their moves and body ... He can put his words and emotion into the action too ... the mix of both can make a good movie of course . I know Legion was not a big deal ... because the story was weak !! not original ! .. but at least he did his part good enough ... and I am sure no one can do better than him .
    WOW 😀 im am in :)
  • beavis
    #23 - legion wasn't complete crap - the scene with the old lady in the diner made it worth one watch. xerxex - glad you liked CJ! i was really impressed with it.........and felicity jones IS gorgeous.
  • Cody w
    OK hell fucking yeah Im in, Karl Urban looks badass also.
  • I'm sadly on the fence. It'll have to be a rental unless all of criticdom approves.
  • Jeff Spicoli
    heres a behind the scene video from almost a year ago.
  • chilin
    i don't know...i think it's smack hit or miss...trailer may be awesome but c'mon, CLASH OF THE TITANS had an awesome trailer...that movie flopped.
  • Marty
    Like the loom of this. Paul Bettany seems to relish this type of role, which is a good thin.
  • CoConutman
    forgive me father for i have jizzed my pants!! This trailer is awesome!@#
  • Squiggly_P
    I love Paul Bettany, but I really wish he'd take on roles that were more along the lines of psychological thriller rather than big dumb action movies. I have a few volumes of the manga, and there are some things that really bug me here. The manga doesn't seem that sci-fi. The opening several books feel more turn-of-the-century than futuristic. Feels more like late 1800's early 1900's western or something. And the giant tattoo crosses seem like overkill. I know they made them big to make them more 'readable', but that's not really how you inject character into your movie. This trailer is sending me the same sort of vibes I got from The Last Airbender trailer. It's over-produced in all the wrong ways.
  • SkyneT
    Looks so fucking good! This trailer actually makes it feel like the movie is real, unlike day watchers etc
  • The Credenza Kid
    Ok...maybe I was the only one who saw Legion and not only didn't think it sucked, but thought it was pretty good. This looks better.
  • McWilly
    I was also entertained from NetFlixing Legion. Agreed on The old lady scene (Awesome)!
  • Lucas Schaeffer
    Do not call this PIECE OF SHIT an adaptation -- only in title. Jesus christ, the plug puffers on this board are crazy. Pick up the actual Manga of this thing if you want to see this is really about, no wonder the author is boycotting the thing...
