Comic Con Trailer For Bettany's Priest Appears Online
If you’ve been following along with our Comic Con coverage then you’ve probably heard talk of a movie called Priest starring Paul Bettany as a vampire hunting man of the clothe. Now the movie’s first trailer, which debuted at Con, is online. It takes a very literal approach to the power of Christ.
The trailer features a lot of random shots of guys posing with guns, throwing edged weapons, or riding on motorbikes. In what is surely the most ridiculously idiotic thing ever and yet at the same time weirdly awesome moment, a bunch of crosses fly up into the air and magically transform into throwing stars. The Catholic Church should love this, after all, it makes priests out to be superheroes. Murderous superheroes, but superheroes just the same. Watch:
In Priest a warrior priest (Paul Bettany) disobeys Church law by teaming with a young sheriff (Cam Gigandet ) and a beautiful priestess (Maggie Q). The three band together to track down a band of renegade vampires who have kidnapped the priest's niece before they turn her into one of them.
