Comic Con: New Priest Posters Introduce Karl Urban's Black Hat

Paul Bettany has played a traitor Angel and Charles Darwin. He hasn’t been hit by lightning yet, so might as well keep going. In Priest he’ll play a man of the clothe who takes up vampire hunting. Jim Caviezel, meanwhile, was struck by lightning while playing Jesus Christ. I think it’s clear who’s side God is on.

Sony debuted two brand new posters for Priest today at the San Diego Comic Con. Check both of those out below. We’ll update them with a high-res version as soon as it’s available.

The above postered “Black Hat” is a former Christian turned Satanic priest who leads the vampire outlaws being hunted by Bettany’s character . He’s played by Karl Urban. Here’s the movie’s full plot synopsis straight from Sony:

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.
