Sony Screen Gems have released another new trailer for their upcoming fantasy post apocalyptic vampire thriller PRIEST. This looks like a internet only trailer maybe a tv spot but what it does do gives us a few more glimspes ito the dark scary world and the movie does remind me alot of 2000AD/Judge Dredd, well it does have the future Joe Dredd Karl Urban desperete to get his fangs into Paul Bettnay our Vampire slaying Hero priest!
I have to admit the special fx/cgi is a little ott and this been a comicbook adaptation it will get some negative press due to been so many comic book related movies on the market but im willing to give this one a chance. Priest is a Korean manga inspired graphic novel(by Min-Woo Hyung) and my approval of Korean based stories is very high at the moment with the likes of I Saw The Devil & Bedevilled.Yeah this completely different from those movies and it wont win Baftas or Oscars, its a no brainer cheesy fun movie which is good to see every so often instead of been bogged down with too many serious movies.
PRIEST will be out on May 13th and boasts a support cast of Karl Urban, Christopher Plummer, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Lily Collins, Stephen Moyer and Brad Dourif.
A legendary Warrior Priest from the last Vampire War now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills
