"The Vatican covered it up… We need to find out why." Sony Pictures has debuted the freaky official trailer for The Pope's Exorcist, the latest from Australian action director Julius Avery. In this exorcism movie - Russell Crowe is The Chief Exorcist of The Vatican. He plays the real-life figure Father Gabriele Amorth, a priest who worked for the Vatican and performed numerous exorcisms during his lifetime. He also wrote two memoirs – An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories – which detailed his experiences battling Satan and demons. The Pope's Exorcist follows Amorth as he investigates a young boy's terrifying possession and ends up uncovering a centuries-old conspiracy the Vatican has desperately tried to keep hidden. The impressive cast also includes Franco Nero as The Pope (get a look at him in this!!), Laurel Marsden, River Hawkins, Pablo Raybould, Daniel Zovatto, Alex Essoe, and Ralph Ineson as the voice of the "Demon". I'm not usually into exorcism films, but this one looks damn good! Scary and thrilling.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Julius Avery's The Pope's Exorcist, direct from YouTube:
