Official Trailer for Tokyopop's 'Priest' Movie with Paul Bettany
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).
