Priest Synopsis

PRIEST, a post-apocalyptic sci fi thriller, is set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) 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 (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

Weekend Box Office - Thor's Lightning Strikes Twice Weekend Box Office - Thor's Lightning Strikes Twice
After dominating the box office last weekend comic book hero flick Thor remained at the top of the heap, hammering its way past the $100 million mark. With $119 million banked in its first ten days it helped to bring this year's slumping sales performance up a bit, but even with the decent showing from the rest of this weekend's new entries the box office isn't out of the woods yet.

New Priest Trailer Is An Extended Clip New Priest Trailer Is An Extended Clip
When crafting a movie trailer, the idea is to provide wide audiences with a better sense of the entire movie condensed down to two-and-a-half minutes. For a movie like Priest, this is usually accomplished by splicing scenes together in a montage format- action scene here, cool line of dialogue there, big explosion and title card. The new trailer for the comic book adaptation, however, takes a different tact.

New Trailer For Priest Reminds Us It's Still Coming In May New Trailer For Priest Reminds Us It's Still Coming In May
Priest is set to come out on May 13th, but unlike many summer action films set to be released after it that have been getting plenty of build-up, such as Captain America: The First Avenger, X-Men: First Class and Cars 2, the buzz and marketing have been practically non-existent (for reference it's been nearly two months since the Super Bowl, the last time we heard anything about it).
