New Action-Filled Theatrical Trailer for TokyoPop's 'Priest' Movie
The devil comes in many shapes… ScreenGems has debuted the theatrical trailer for Scott Stewart's hyper-stylized adaptation of the TokyoPop manga Priest - starring Paul Bettany as a warrior priest who must fight off a gang of vampires. Its supporting cast includes Karl Urban, Christopher Plummer, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Lily Collins, Stephen Moyer and Brad Dourif. The first trailers for this premiered at Comic-Con last year and I was actually totally sold based on the footage from those. I'm still interested after seeing this latest trailer, some of the effects look quite good, but I'm not expecting too much. Watch the trailer below!

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 in full-on 3D.
